Creative dining at St Enodoc Hotel in Rock
With coastal views, beautiful fabrics, and ceramics by The Cornish Potter, privately-owned St Enodoc Hotel is the epitome of seaside chic.
This exquisite hideaway in Rock offers two stylish dining spots in which guests can experience the creativity of head chef Guy Owen’s sublime dishes.
For casual dining, The Brasserie oozes contemporary coastal cool with pops of sea-blue and an estuary-facing terrace that’s ideal for pre-dinner cocktails in summer. In winter, opt to dine by the big bay windows to experience moody waterscapes.
Cornish artwork and stunning vistas make it a delightful spot for snacking on delicious small plates like sticky sausages with sesame, and spicy ‘nduja doughnuts. For a full feast, starters such as mackerel teriyaki with puffed rice, wasabi and radish can be followed by creations like pork chop with blue cheese macaroni and burnt apple.
For intimate tasting menus, the relaxed Karrek restaurant is where Guy celebrates the county’s premium produce. The Great British Menu chef grew up in Cornwall, and each dish is carefully executed using its bounty, as well as yields from the hotel’s family farm, Made- Well, in Devon.
Artistic and adventurous courses include the likes of fish and chips as a canapé, pretzel bread with cultured butter, Mum’s favourite bouillabaisse, and caramelised white chocolate with strawberry and basil.
Guests indulging in the accompanying wine flight will be glad of an overnight stay in one of the vibrant rooms complete with Camel Estuary views, quirky oil paintings and products from Bramley. There’s also a sumptuous spa stocked with Elemis goodies.
