Cornwall's benign climate helped create the 65 acres of sub-tropical gardens that surround Budock Vean, but it is the inspired vision of the owners that made an organically-managed landscape of woodlands, gardens and golf course on the banks of the Helford River. The elegant restaurant is the setting for a menu in which high-quality Cornish produce is treated with simplicity and respect in dishes such as spiced West Country chicken breast with poached pear, followed by pan-fried fillet of John Dory (from local waters) with wild mushrooms and chive-butter sauce. A dessert of banoffee pie with chocolate ice cream and honeycomb hits the sweet spot.
