The food on your plate has a story, and we can tell you every step of  it.

We only trust the best

Just like our produce, we choose only the best foragers, fishermen, gardeners, farmers and butchers to keep our menu fresh and exciting.

Here are a few of the people who make it all possible.

The Forager

Often found scouring the coastal shallows and country lanes around Falmouth, forager extraordinaire Miles Lavers brings freshly picked sea greens to the table.

The Market Gardener

Canara Farm’s Peter Lawrence draws on fascinating, little-known historic techniques to work the land and bring the tastiest organic vegetables to your plate.

The Butcher

Taste before price. That’s the ethos that pushes Ian Warren, of Philip Warren Graziers and Master Butchers, to keep giving his customers the best meat and his farmers the best deal.

Excellent meal -

"The food was excellent as was the service...literally cannot fault any of it! The waiting staff were always on hand to assist you, and always met you with a smile. The presentation was as pleasing to the eye as much as the taste on the tongue."
