The Bay@Hotel Penzance

Britons Hill, PENZANCE, TR18 3AE

2 rosettes

With magnificent views over rooftops to Mount's Bay, The Bay is a light and airy restaurant with a stylish, contemporary feel and a relaxed atmosphere in part generated by friendly, professional staff. The kitchen follows a rigorous Cornwall-only policy - seafood from Newlyn and St Ives, specially grown vegetables, meats from local farms - and makes everything in-house, from bread to ice cream, with an assured touch. A separate lobster menu (24 hours' notice needed) might see the crustacean grilled with garlic and herbs, while the carte offers much to entice. Start with rabbit and Parma ham terrine balanced by fig and prune compôte, or seared mackerel fillet interestingly partnered by pickled vegetable salad, capers and shallots. Sea-fresh loin of cod, well timed, in an intense herb crust could be one of the inspired fish main courses, accompanied by spelt risotto, mushroom velouté and curly kale, or there could be classic roast breast of guinea fowl in bacon with dauphinoise, Savoy cabbage and thyme jus. Standards are well matched by puddings like plum jelly with vanilla brûlée and pistachio ice cream.

I live in Penzance and know The Bay well, but had not dined in the restaurant since new chef Stephen Mesher took over. Visiting friends was the perfect excuse for Dinner in the restaurant. Amazing views were surpassed by beautiful food. Perfectly cooked lamb; delicious salmon; and petit fours that deserve a review all of their own. Service was friendly but discrete, and my friends were delighted with the whole experience.
