We were in Cornwall, just had a miserable day at The Eden Project and my wife was not happy with the Hotel we were staying at, so she refused to eat there that night. It was a very stormy, cold wet night but we went in search of a restaurant close by. We followed a few signs to various places but they were either booked out or past serving food.
Then we stumbled upon this hotel down a private road overlooking the beautiful Carylon Bay. I ran inside to see if they could feed us and was warmly greeted by the manager, offered a menu as well as a table in the window overlooking the very stormy bay. The waiting staff were fantastic and the food was delicious. The house wine was good and reasonably priced. Fellow diners said they were very pleased with the accommodation, so we rather fancied having another drink and staying. Unfortunately the hotel was fully booked so we had to go back to the sub standard place we were already booked into. Will check them first when we are next in the area!
