Britons Hill, PENZANCE, TR18 3AE
As well as magnificent views over rooftops to Mount's Bay, the Bay Brasserie offers plenty to catch the eye indoors, since monthly-changing exhibitions of local artists' work are a draw in the light and airy contemporary space. The kitchen sources its materials from the West Country, with all of the fresh fish and shellfish hauled in from Cornish ports to appear in mains such as roast cod fillet with squid and vegetable compôte and seaweed salsa, or grilled brill with brown shrimps, tomato and samphire. Cornish lobster needs 24 hours' notice and comes grilled with garlic and herbs or thermidor sauce. The wide-ranging modern English menu also gives fans of local meat plenty to get their teeth into - perhaps pan-fried pigeon breast with figs, chard and Pernod jus, while roast rump of lamb gets the full-bore support of onions and anchovy, smoked aubergine and potato cake. Baked dark chocolate and cardamom tart with crème fraîche sorbet, or artisan West Country cheeses with pickled grapes and home-made oat biscuits could provide the finale.
