We are pleased to be able to offer a new and exciting takeaway service from Tuesday 14th of July 2020.
During the lockdown we have been working hard behind the scenes to come up with new offerings for our customers – new and old. Recognising that not everyone will be able or wish to join us physically in the restaurant we have crafted something a little different for you to be able to takeaway and enjoy in the comfort of your own company.
Whether it be Westcountry mussels in white wine or Orzo pasta with wild mushrooms we have something for every sophisticated taste!
Why not try one of our new seafood sharing boxes? These are packed with fresh local seafood with the option for lobster as well! Because these are using the freshest ingredients we do ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice to source all the tasty elements for you to indulge.
The weather is glorious at the moment, so why not go for one of our picnic ‘boxes’ and enjoy a treat out on the beautiful landscape of West Cornwall – choose from a selection of seafood, charcuterie & cheese or vegetarian / vegan.
You can find out more from the takeaway menu link at the end of this post. All available from Tuesday 14th of July – if you have any questions then please call us or drop us an email – we look forward to helping you get the most from our wonderful local food produce.
