Fifteen closed permanently on 21 May 2019
Literally on the beach overlooking one of Cornwall’s funkiest surfing destinations, this hip outpost of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen is a tie-in between the pukka chef and the Cornwall Food Foundation (part of JO’s apprentice programme for disadvantaged youngsters). Seasonal Cornish ingredients and imported Italian provisions come together on a menu that delivers on all fronts – from breakfast, early-evening antipasti and kids’ deals to the full works (with wine pairings). Vigorous rustic dishes are the deal, from campanelle pasta with slow-cooked cuttlefish, olives and tomatoes to duck breast with polenta, wild mushroom and agro dulce or wood-fired monkfish dressed with peperonata and salmoriglio sauce. Dry-aged Longhorn steaks also feature, while desserts might include Sicilian cassata with pistachio and candied orange. Jaw-dropping sandscapes, dreamy sunsets and crashing Atlantic waves add to the thrill of it all, whether you’re outside or gazing from the restaurant’s wraparound windows.
