Austell's is a simple, uncluttered spot, with wooden floors and artwork on plain walls. Diners on the raised area see the team at work in the open-plan kitchen. Mediterranean accents enhance a menu of Cornish produce - local ham hock comes in a terrine with pea risotto, smoked Granny Smith apple purée, port and truffle dressing and a prmesan wafer, followed by pan-fried sea bass fillet and seared scallops with dauphinoise potato, carrot purée, green beans wrapped in pancetta, and a delightful pea velouté. For dessert, black cherry compôte is a perfect foil for a decadently gooey chocolate brownie, with honeycomb, frosted pecans and cherry ice cream adding further interest.
