Star chef Nathan Outlaw’s two Michelin-starred Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac was previously considered one of the best fish and seafood restaurants in the UK. Sadly, due the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020, Outlaw decided to shut up shop and rebrand the space as a more accessible offering, giving it the new name Outlaw’s New Road. It seems the gamble has paid off, because the restaurant was awarded one Michelin star less than a year after opening. Outlaw's New Road serves seafood-focused menus that make use of Cornwall’s bounty, from coast to field, with a focus on simple and classic cooking.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, with an a la carte menu available in the day, and a singular tasting menu on offer for dinner. The restaurant’s seafront setting and fabulous views of the north Cornish coast make its window seats the best, and most popular, in the house. The interiors are simple, smart and homely, with white walls, wooden beamed ceilings and lots of natural light. 

The a la carte lunch menu includes complementary cheddar and oregano bread, followed by the likes of lobster risotto with orange, basil and spring onion, turbot with lemon and garlic butter, confit potatoes and Hot Dog peas, and elderflower and custard tart with gooseberry and ginger tart for dessert. 

In the evening, the menu shifts gears to a 12-course taster. It begins with nibbles, before moving through a selection of fishy courses, and finishes with petit fours. Examples include sea bass with pistachio, mint and anchovy, lobster with orange and basil, mackerel with green sauce and tomatoes, and a dessert of chocolate, mint and yoghurt.

The wine list features a premium selection of Champagne and English sparkling, as well as a concise selection of reds, whites and roses. You'll always find a 'featured' wine on offer too, which is recommended by the sommelier and great for diners who can't decide.

Nathan Outlaw

Executive chef

Regarded as one of the finest chefs working in the UK today, Nathan Outlaw is renowned for working with fish and seafood, and his eponymous Restaurant Nathan Outlaw was once considered one of, if not the best, in Britain. These days he runs Outlaw's New Road on the same site, and also runs Outlaw's Fish Kitchen in Rock, both of which are considered among the very best restaurants in Cornwall, sourcing fresh seafood from local dayboat fishermen and cooking it with classic technique. 

Outlaw is also a familiar face across the country, having made many a TV appearance over the years on shows like Saturday Kitchen and Great British Menu, and written a variety of cookbooks.

Not quite up to the old standards that had us trekking to Cornwall for more than a decade. The small plates menu left something to be desired, although the return of the Porthilly Sauce was very welcome.
