Description: The Quarterdeck Restaurant is located at The Nare Hotel on Cornwall's Roseland Peninsula. With spectacular sea views over Gerrans Bay, it is the perfect place to meet family and friends for a relaxed lunch or stylish evening meal. The Quarterdeck has a classical yachting décor, sheltered terrace and a reputation for fabulous food made with the finest local ingredients. We have always been a big supporter of West Country farmers and specialise in locally reared beef and the freshest of seafood caught from waters almost on the doorstep. The Nare's wine cellar is extensive with wines from all round the world selected and laid down by Toby Ashworth, proprietor.

“Fine dining but too formal”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We went to the Quarterdeck as it seemed to offer a more relaxed style of dining than would be found in the Nare's dining room. This did not prove to be the case. The food was good though there did not seem to be much differentiation between the restaurants except the main restaurant was table d'hôte and the Quarterdeck a la carte, but both fine dining. If you are looking for fine formal dining then either restaurant will be for you, if however you are looking for a more relaxed style of dining then it will not be. Overall good food and good service though it was just not the type of dining we were looking for and seems to be indicated by website description and photos.

“Weekday lunch.”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

The Quarter Deck is a reflection of the Nares main restaurant (which is unbeatable for Sunday lunch).Their seafood menu was a little limited but great value and not to forget the house wines.They were £25.00 / bottle which for the quality, I would have expected to pay £35-40 /bottle.

“Good food, good view but a touch formal”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

The quality of the food and service in this restaurant could not be faulted and nor could the view over sea. The hotel itself is very formal although the staff were very friendly and welcoming with the Quarterdeck being the less formal restaurant of the two in the hotel. Food was very well presented and well cooked although the menu was slightly on the fussy side (we both ended up ordering steak and chips for our mains). The food was good value but by no means cheap although there was a selection of wines available by the glass.

“Great place to eat with fab view”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

This is the more modern restaurant at the Nare and it has a very high standard of cooking. You can get basic sandwiches and crisps and salad or a full, posh dinner.

It's clearly popular with locals. They often have people coming for birthday parties or other special events. It's also great for the kids as there's lots to look at and a separate 'gallery' where you can sit and talk and drink cocktails or tea and coffee.

“Calm before the storm”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Grasped an hour or so on the beach in glorious sunshine as the winds started to rise, and stealed ourselves inside for a great lunch watching the palm tree bending to the winds. Wonderful spot on the Roseland. Very well cooked food, excellent fixed price daily menu. Very good, well priced and interesting range of wines by the glass. Staff formally trained and a pleasant change to see. Second visit in the same week and will definitely head back on next trip.
