Choose from sumptuous starters such as Fowey cider mussels served with fresh bread, and coconut-breaded ﬁsh goujons with orange, rocket and pomegranate. For a delicious seafood main, plump for the catch of the day with with a choice of sauces, or try the Looe crab tagliatelle. If you’d prefer a hearty meat or vegetarian dish, choose from the likes of local beef with a choice of sauce, and rich white wine and gorgonzola tagliatelle with pistachio crumb. Divine desserts such as the devilish homemade chocolate brownie, crème brûlée, and the light and summery Cornish blush cider and mixed berry jelly are worth saving room for.
