Start the day with fresh pastries and Bryher Bakes or an irresistible bacon brioche bap, an Abbey Garden mint tea, a fresh fruit smoothie or Cornish Origin coffee.

For a leisurely brunch, explore our seasonal and locally-sourced menu; think baked St Ewe eggs with tomato and rose harissa ragu or Charlotte potato, pea and ham hock hash. There’s no need to book during the day; choose a spot on our suntrap terrace or enjoy the breathtaking sea views from inside.

The view comes into its own as the sun sets, casting a golden glow over the channel, the perfect setting for our casual evening offering.

From 6th July, we're open three evenings each week for a Cornish tapas selection of small plates, aperitifs and organic wines, with a menu that changes according to what the seasons and our suppliers deliver.

We’d suggest booking ahead to enjoy the tapas-style evening menu, which might include Newlyn mackerel on rye with sweet and sour beetroot and lime, chargrilled Cornish purple sprouting broccoli with balsamic reduction and shaved Cornish Yarg and tempting Cornish cheese sharing boards.

All with that perfect backdrop of the shimmering sunset on the sea...

Booking with us:

There's no need to book ahead for daytime; there's plenty of space inside and in our courtyard garden.

Booking is strongly advised for evenings, although you're always welcome to pop in and see if we have space available or to join us just for an aperitif as the sun goes down.

You can see our full table booking terms and conditions below.
