The Scarlet Hotel

Choosing where to dine in Cornwall on any night of the year is a difficult decision to make; with so many incredible restaurants, each with a fantastic team of chefs at the helm. Choosing where to have dinner on Valentine’s Day in Cornwall makes this decision all the more difficult. We’ve scoured the internet to find some tempting choices for that special evening.


Lusty Glaze

What can be more romantic than a seven course taster menu on one of the UK’s top beaches, surrounded by fairy lights, candles, live music and, to top it off, your dinner cooked by the famous Master Chef, Nat Tallents herself? Not much more really needs to be said other than your most perfect Valentine’s evening to date costs only £35pp and that tickets can be purchased by calling 01637 872444. You will leave your amorous evening with full tummies and hearts full of love!

If you can’t make the evening though, don’t fear, as there is also a Valentine’s Brunch available from 10am until 2pm with a menu full of scrummy looking brunch dishes. Take a look here.


Lewinnick Lodge

The Lewinnick Lodge was originally built for the staff that worked in a nearby manor house and it was accidently built on the wrong side of the headland, (personally we think this is the better side). Perched right on the edge of Pentire Headland the views are striking as you look up over the Atlantic Ocean toward Fistral Bay; it feels like you’re in a boat rather than on land.

The breakfast and lunch menu are being served as usual during the day, but there is a special Valentine’s menu which has been created for the evening. With plenty of plates to choose from, piled high with local produce, each dish will be cooked to perfection by Head Chef Richard Humphries, who brings a wealth of Cornish produce knowledge to the table. Book your table online here or alternatively call 01637 878117. The 4-course menu is £40pp and will undoubtedly be a hit with that special someone.



Described as a ‘seductive celebration of a five course sumptuous dinner’, Fifteen have pulled out all the stops with a fabulous evening full of food and wine and, for no extra, sunset and waves. Located just above Watergate Bay, Fifteen has floor to ceiling windows for you to absorb the unspoilt views of the bay, a fun and friendly team to ensure your evening runs smoothly and a menu of romantic recipes. Tickets are £65pp and wine pairing at £45pp. For more details or to book, call the reservations team on 01637 861000.


The Scarlet Hotel

Located at the top of Mawgan Porth with stunning views over beach, watch the day go by or sun go down as you indulge in a three course meal at the Scarlet Restaurant. The Scarlet Hotel, and its sister hotel Bedruthan Steps, take great pride in the ingredients which they use for their high impact flavours, endeavouring to only use locally sourced, fresh produce. Starts, such as terrine of Terras Farm duck and mains of wild sea bass and glassed roots will feature on the menu. And if that didn’t get your taste buds tingling, a choice of desserts including, vanilla panna cotta with pears poached in blackcurrant, basil and lime, will round off the evening perfectly.

Three courses for £42.50pp and wine flight £35pp. To book you can either call 01637 861800 or a simple booking form on their restaurant website.


Rick Stein’s Cafe

We all know Padstow is famous for its numerous eateries, visitors are spoilt for choice, but one man in particular has had such an influence on Padstow’s food culture that the town has adopted a the nickname of ‘Padstein’. Most people head straight to The Seafood Restaurant, which is undoubtedly fantastic, however Stein has a collection of unique eateries and one particular gem tucked away is Rick Stein’s Cafe.

Not only will the dinner be about each other, but also your love of good, honest food cooked beautifully. With ingredients sourced locally and fresh from the sea, the 3-course set Valentine’s menu has a tempting selection to ponder over, from stir friend salt and pepper squid to sunken chocolate cake. The menu is £30pp and you can make a reservation by either calling the team on 01841 532700 or online.
