Those looking for a foodie break should head to West Cornwall, the UK region renowned for its ever-flourishing food scene. From delectable fine-dining at Mount Haven to lunch on a historic tidal island courtesy of Sail Loft. Beautifully positioned overlooking iconic St Michael’s Mount, Mount Haven is a 20-room boutique hotel with a fabulous gastronomic offering. Led by Head Chef Ross Sloan the restaurant offers delicious modern British cuisine, inspired by the beautiful surroundings and utilising the best Cornish produce. A lover of foraging, Sloan incorporates much of the local environment into his food, with sample dishes including Newlyn crab with nettle gazpacho, Granny Smith apple and dulse powder (below). The hotel also offers a Terrace Bar menu to be enjoyed overlooking the Mount, featuring Ross’s signature mackerel doughnuts. From here, guests can venture into the centre of Marazion where they can head across the cobbled causeway to St Michael’s Mount, home to the Sail Loft restaurant.
Offering everything from breakfast and light lunches to a specialised vegan menu, Sail Loft provides guests with the unique opportunity to dine on a historic tidal island, surrounded by the sea. Head Chef Greg Milne successfully challenges certain perceptions of tourist attraction food with this fabulous offering, upholding a belief that island dining unites gastronomy and the environment, and creates cherished memories for guests.
