• The Cornish Michelin Star Winners 2017

    Woop woop! If ever there was a call for pants of Bridget Jones-esque dimensions – this is it. Our county has done us proud with three Cornish restaurants receiving Michelin stars in the revered 2017 guide – strap me in and pass me my golden fork… it’s time to EAT!

  • Muddy Eats: Ruin Beach Cafe, Tresco

The first Prawn on the Lawn seafood bar opened in Islington a few years back but last spring, owners Katie and Rick decided to move […]

    If reports in the national press are true – that Penzance is emerging as the new gourmet capital of Cornwall – then Bruce Rennie deserves more than a nod for his part in that evolution. Bruce has a knock-out CV, previously head chef at the award winning Gurnard’s Head, he has chef’ed at some of the best restaurants  in the country, including Michelin starred Wishart’s in […]
