Tucked away in a hidden cove on the north Cornish coast, a hilly but short stroll from Port Isaac, this whitewashed village inn with its hanging baskets and outdoor tables is as pretty as a picture, the beamed, slate-floored bar giving way to a pair of interlinked dining rooms. The cooking has an inventive, though traditionally based undertow, producing starters like Porthilly mussels in Cornish cider, sage and onion with crème fraîche, leading to fortifying mains such as hake with ham hock and pearl barley, dressed in capers and raisins, or hogget faggots with bubble-and-squeak mash, buttered kale and balsamic shallots. Finish with white chocolate crème brûlée and passionfruit sorbet.
