Views to dine for at Housel Bay Hotel
While the views of untamed Lizard coast and country from the most southerly hotel on mainland Britain are hard to rival, head chef Joseph Fallowfield’s artfully compiled dishes command the attention of any window-seat diner.
The dining room at his eponymous restaurant, Fallowfields, has recently been refurbished to reflect Housel Bay’s relationship with its natural surroundings. It’s the perfect setting for the ambitious young chef’s cooking, which also draws from this dramatic Cornish setting.
‘Our food philosophy is simple,’ says Joseph. ‘We work with the best suppliers to source the best ingredients, then create dishes which replicate the care and dedication which yielded this exceptional produce.’
While the tasting menus at Fallowfields take guests on a culinary tour of Cornwall, dishes at sister restaurant The Terrace display the same dedication to provenance – just in a more casual setting.
Stay over in one of the 24 attractively designed bedrooms and, after a fortifying breakfast in The Terrace with its huge picture windows, take advantage of the hotel’s position on the South West Coast Path to head into the great outdoors.
Trencherman’s tip: if you’re indulging in the tasting menu, don’t miss the inspired wine pairings selected by Joseph to complement his dishes.
