10 Beach Road, CARLYON BAY, St Austell, PL25 3PH

2 rosettes

In an unassuming setting on a parade of shops on the road to Carlyon Bay, Austell's is a simple, uncluttered spot, with wooden floors and artwork on plain walls. The split-level layout fosters a convivial mood, while diners on the raised area can watch and chat with the team at work in the open-plan kitchen. There are no corners cut here: seasonality drives the menus so new dishes pop up regularly, and everything is made in-house, from breads (perhaps mustard bread served with nutty rapeseed oil) to home-churned herb butter. Mediterranean accents add zing to a menu that always offers generous helpings of Cornish produce - local ham hock comes in a terrine with pea risotto, smoked Granny Smith apple pur?e, port and truffle dressing and a prmesan wafer, followed by pan-fried sea bass fillet and seared scallops with dauphinoise potato, carrot pur?e, green beans wrapped in pancetta, and a delightful pea velout?. For dessert, black cherry comp?te is a perfect foil for a decadently gooey chocolate brownie, with honeycomb, frosted pecans and cherry ice cream adding further interest.
