We were given a voucher for our silver wedding anniversary and The Scarlet were happy to allow us to use this for lunch. A very relaxed atmosphere with attentive service that did not feel OTT. Stunning views from the lounge and restaurant. We were given a table right by the large windows to take full advantage. A wonderful lunch followed... More

The food in the Scarlet restaurant is much better than what you would expect for Hotel Food. High Quality Fine dining, served by excellent staff, in rather weird hipster uniforms. We expected to eat well in Cornwall, looking forward to going back

Interesting combinations, and high quality. also, chose the wine with each course, which was chosen by the resident somellier - and they went perfectly. Lovely ambiance, looking out over Mawgan...

We ate here in November 2015 when they had their 'locals' off. Having stayed at Bedruthan a couple of times and promising ourselves the Scarlet experience at some point, the great offer clinched it for us. The food was excellent, setting fantastic, it is very casual dining, which suits us, but may not be what others expect.

The Scarlet is a place like no other, it is hard to describe in words why it is so different. It could be the wonderful staff, it could be the views or it could be the attention to deatil with the food.

We arrived early as last time service was a bit slow. However, today they were quiet so we had a great deal of good service. Three of us chose the Roast Beef and one chose the pork loin. WOW WOW WOW!

Thank you so much for sharing your Scarlet experience. I am so pleased you enjoyed your meal, however it is such a shame that what sounds like an incredible meal was let down by undercooked vegetables. I have fed this back to the kitchen team and am investigating how this happened. I would very much appreciate a conversation with you... More
