Our enticing deli menu and ‘to die for’ Cornish afternoon tea can be served in your room or anywhere else you like at any time.3 course lunch £22.50. 3 course Sunday lunch £25. 3 course dinner £42.50.

Delicious food and excellent service in a beautiful setting. The fish was all super fresh and well prepared and the chocolate brownie pudding was so rich and morish.

We were recently at the Scarlet hotel and stopped in at the restaurant both for breakfast and dinner. Both meals were amazing and used high quality, local ingredients. These were easily some of the best meals we have in the UK, up to the calibre of something you would get at a Gordon Ramsey like meal.

As you noticed, Tom is passionate out using the best, local ingredients and he will be really pleased that you've appreciated the teams offerings. I hope you join us again very soon... More

The food here surpassed expectations - relaxed fine dining. There's a really great view - we were staying locally in a B&B and were recommended this place as it was a birthday. We did not expect the food to be of such a high standard.
