86.___The Brasserie at Watergate Bay

The hotel's restaurant was wonderful, I'm sad and like to keep things that mean something, and managed to keep the menu from The Boyfriend's 21st. Here's what was on offer.


Chilled Gazpacho with white crab chilli and lemon
Fishcakes, picked cucumber ribbons with saffron aioli
Grilled Cornish sardines with sweet and sour pepper
Italian and heritage tomatoes with barrel aged feta, pine nuts, raisins, rocket and balsamic
Pork Rilettes with pickled apricots and toasted sunflower and honey loaf


Hake Saltimbocca on butterbean, lemon and herb ragout with crisp shallots
Fillets of south coast place with crushed earlies, brown shrimp and Buttervilla perpetual spinach
Grilled chicken breast with wild mushroom cream sauce, Russian kale and boulangere potatoes
Roast rump of lamb with broad beans, crushed mint peas and olive oil mash
Chick pea and Italian roast pepper tagine on pumpkin and saffron rice


Orange cream with marinated figs and raspberries
Creme fraiche mousse, poached apricots and shortbread crumble
Chocolate torte with strawberry prosecco sorbet and pistachios
Apple strudel with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream
Yorkshire blue, Sue's Keltic gold and Hereford white cheese served with honey and sunflower bread and cucumber chutney

Roskilly's Farm Cornish ice cream

The choice is brilliant, and me being awkward, managed to eat (I'm allergic to dairy, lamb and beef). To start I had the fishcakes, which were the best ones I have truly ever tasted, I wasn't the only one who had them and we all wished that there was a choice to have them as a main. I also had the Chick pea tagine, which was lovely, although, not sure that I'd have it again, and, for dessert, I had a beautiful mango sorbet.

If you're staying in the hotel, there is a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast option, if not, the Brasserie is open to the public with three courses being £28.00 and two £22.00. Booking at
