Beloved of locals, Saffron is a warm, friendly space with a slate floor, yellow walls & low ceilings, & the menu offers exactly what you want to eat. Chef Nic Tinney & his wife Traci are doing simple food exceptionally well & they follow the local, seasonal mantra so devotedly that the menu lists the farmers & producers whose products appear in such dishes as Trewithian Estate pheasant salmis with cabbage & bacon salad, & rich game pudding with artichoke & potato dauphinoise. Even desserts have a ring of seasonality with Autumn pudding with prune & armagnac ice cream saying it all. Lunch is built around a flexible selection of Mediterranean-influenced light snacks & more substantial dishes, & if you’re short of time the express lunch is good value at £12.50. Saturday brunch (9.30am-4pm) is another option, children get their own sensible menu, there are seasonal treats like Cornish summer seafood or asparagus menus, & prices are really reasonable. What impresses, too, is the modest, down to earth approach – it’s irresistible.
