We had the set menu which ticked all boxes. Wine comparing for each meal was great. Reserve a table as you may get disappointed.

We had 2 evening meals at the Scarlet restaurant during a recent stay. The standard of the food was excellent in all respects and the staff attentive and helpful. We felt that the meals were very good value for money and intend to return again and recommend to others.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel on a dinner, b & b basis and both agreed that the food was one of the highlights of our stay. Each course was delicious and cooked to perfection. A real treat.

We enjoyed 2 lovely dinners at the Scarlet during our stay. The food was simply delicious. A lovely menu with a fantastic selection of vegetarian dishes amongst other local and seasonal meat and fish choices. A great wine list and service was excellent.

It was a pleasure to read your reviews out to the team - thank you! The menu, as we favour fresh, seasonal produce, also changes daily so there's always something new and exciting to try. We hope to welcome you back in the new year. Kind regards Erica House Manager More

I took my partner here for her birthday, we had both heard good things about the restaurant and were not disappointed. Everything oozes of quality. The welcome we received was very warm and all throughout the staff were excellent. The view is to die for, but where on the North Coast of Cornwall isn't? And as for the food, well... More
