Over the dark winter months, we’ve been busy working away behind the scenes to completely transform Stargazy Inn’s bar and restaurant and brand new Head Chef, Andrew Sheridan, has come board to take Stargazy’s food to the next level.
Andrew Sheridan is one of the most innovative and ambitious chefs in the country, renowned for his appearance on BBC Two’s Great British Menu last year where he was branded ‘the maverick chef’ for his unusual approach. With the new series of Great British Menu moving to a prime-time 8pm slot on BBC Two from March 20th, Andrew returns to our TV screens for a second time.
We’re delighted to bring one of the most exciting young chefs in the country to Port Isaac., which already has a thriving gastronomic scene with Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and our sister properties Port Gaverne Hotel and Pilchards café on the beach, now Stargazy Inn will become a destination restaurant and rooms in its own right.
Andrew says: “I’m incredibly excited to come to Cornwall and create new menus for Stargazy Inn which will celebrate the wonderful local produce including fish from Port Isaac day boats and lobster from pots in the bay, as well as foraging, fermenting and preserving wild foods.”
“Food to me is one of the most beautiful things we can do to connect with nature in a variety of ways. Seasonality plays a massive part in the kitchen, we take the best ingredients when they’re in season and prepare them with respect to let its full potential shine.”
Andrew will put his stamp on Stargazy Inn with a new bar menu with his own unique take on Cornish classics like Deep Fried Sprats, Lobster & Crayfish Butty and Stargazy Fish Pie. In the Restaurant, a Tasting Menu (and A la Carte) will take diners on a journey with each dish telling a story and through memories, tastes or seasons including Torched Mackerel with cucumber & dill, Salt Baked Beetroot, Cornish Lamb with onions & wild garlic.
Over the last few months, we’ve been working hard to completely transform the restaurant and bar to be more sleek and contemporary and make the most of Stargazy Inn’s wonderful sea views.
