TASTE OF LOCAL

Surrounded by some of nature’s most incredible ingredients this is truly the foodies ultimate break.

Night one’s task is to choose three courses from our seasonal a la carte dinner menu.  On the second night, Jamie and his team will cook you a very seasonal ‘Taste of Local’ bespoke sharing menu that will be created on the day based on what is available and at its absolute best.

DAY ONE

Arrive in time for tea at 4pm and a freshly baked cake from the kitchen.  Seeing as it’s a gourmet escape we’d recommend starting off on the right foot and ordering a glass of one of our English sparkling wines, a perfect accompaniment.  Drinks at the bar and then a candlelit three course dinner from our a la carte dinner menu before heading off to bed.

DAY TWO

A cheeky Bloody Mary alongside something cooked from the kitchen?  They’re on us and a great way to start the day.

 

Breakfast is a good time to plan the day – there’s so much one can do.  Don’t forget yoga 8 or how about an early morning gallivant on our amazing sandy beach?  Choose from one of our unique Gallivant Experiences?  Or maybe a lovely treatment in our Beach Hut mini spa from Dermalogica – pre booking is essential? Decisions, decisions.

Tonight’s ‘Taste of Local’ menu is going to be special.  A real taste of the very best local ingredients.

A sharing plate of starters, an incredible main course off the robata grill (today’s catch off the boat, an incredible cut of meat or something vegetarian, you decide) and then a stunning pud to share. It’s going to be epic.

DAY THREE

Another delicious breakfast to start the day, again there’s yoga (or pilates) too and don’t forget a quick stretch of the legs on the beach before finally heading off feeling revived and resplendent!


This Taste of Local menu is effectively designed for you so when booking please tell us what you would prefer for your main course and we will make it happen.
