Trelowarren Estate, Mawgan, HELSTON, TR12 6AF
The New Yard Restaurant has been carved out of the former stable yard of the Trelowarren Estate, which comprises 1,000 acres of woodland and pasture leading down to the Helford River. Outside, the yard itself feels more like a Mediterranean courtyard with its pair of magnificent olive trees, while the interior has a distinctive look, sporting a chequered floor, arched windows, log fires, unclothed wooden tables and an open-plan kitchen. The punchy, far-reaching menu has ranged from tempura calamari with chilli jam to rump of lamb with spicy yogurt, sweet potato and baby carrots, and the brigade pulls out all the stops to produce generally uncomplicated dishes that are big on flavour. Carpaccio with rocket and parmesan, or crab with pumpkin, macaroni and parmesan, is a prelude to pork belly, of superb quality, accompanied by smoked cheek in a subtle sauce, queen scallops, cauliflower and samphire, or John Dory V?ronique with samphire and spinach. Puddings are well worth exploring, judging by white chocolate mousse with a raspberry and lemon version of Eton Mess and raspberry sorbet.
