Technically innovative cooking on the coastal path

The hotel stands in seven of its own acres, with a woodland path winding down to the private beach and cove on Gerrans Bay, a restorative location near a slip of a village on the South West Coast Path. Inside, if you can tear yourself away from the terrace decking, the place is bright and airy, a fitting context for Chris Eden's technically innovative and exciting food. Local materials feature as prominently as one would expect, with expressive seafood dishes a particular strength. Start with crisped sea bass in beurre noisette bisque with saffroned kohlrabi, and then proceed to roast monkfish with samphire and textures of artichoke in thyme-laced roasting juices. If you're on a meatier roll, it could be red-leg partridge with honeynut squash and pickled plum to begin, followed by exquisitely tender lamb loin with honey-glazed aubergine, olives, feta, pine nuts and vine leaves. The house dessert, which comes with a story we'll let them tell you, is 'thunder and lightning tart', a clotted cream custard affair with a crushed almond base, meringue and prune purée, served with spritzy ginger beer sorbet.
