Stewart and Ann Eddy have really stamped their personality on this pink-washed village inn a short drive from Penzance and close to Mount’s Bay. The stone-walled bar is traditional in style with an abundance of maritime and fishing paraphernalia, whilst tables in the enclosed, south-facing terraced garden are highly prized in summer. Landlord Stewart trained with Raymond Blanc and Michael Caines and his cooking has garnered much praise, as has his commitment to West Country produce. To start, try a risotto of Exe mussels and local greens before moving on to char-grilled Cornish rib-eye or cod fillet with crab, tomato and courgette dressing, watercress sauce and herb oil. After that, gooseberry pavlova with clotted cream and elderflower ice cream strikes a fresh seasonal note. Two comfortable en-suite bedrooms are available for those tempted to stay that little bit longer.
