We stayed at the attached hotel with work and were booked into the Herring for dinner. The staff were great and the food was fantastic. Also offer some good Cornish products including Cornish wine which was very nice! The views from the restaurant over the bay are stunning and if your not from round the area like us you will...

We were pleased to get a table at short notice on a Friday night and were not disappointed. It was our 15th anniversary, and we were staying at the Scarlett which is a 200 metre walk from the Bedruthan Hotel and were seated on time at 8.00pm. Comped with champagne and terrific canapes. Starters were good, but the mains were... More

Having heard that it had recently won the award for Restaurant of the Year it was at the top of my Must Try list. The whole experience from our warm, friendly greeting to being bid farewell was true confirmation of that. My scallops were cooked to perfection, sweet and the seasoning spot on. I tried some of the fish soup... More

This is our third trip here and have not been disappointed. The menu is limited, so probably not worth coming twice in a few days though, and the desserts this year were a bit uninspiring - but the choices of the cheese was good. The pork for starters was lovely, and the bass was well cooked.

We live locally to the Bedruthan Hotel, so we thought we would take our friend there for her birthday as a treat for all of us. Rather than the friendly greeting we would expect, we were ignored on arrival by the front of house staff. Our wine was lovely and chilled but the water which I specifically ordered Iced was...

We visited The Herring for a family celebration, we had seen pictures of a stunning platter in their website, as we are fish lovers we were enticed to book. On arrival we were shocked to see the minimal menu (at best) and no sign of the beautiful platter. (photographed here also by management) The quality of the food that we... More

Just arrived late this evening and hadn't booked a place to eat. Needed somewhere that was vegetarian friendly as two in our party were vegetarian. Found a fantastic place right where we're staying at -Bedruthan Steps Hotel at their restaurant The Herring. Had a very nice vegetarian option, as well as non-vegetarian. Desserts fantastic as well. Service great too. Almost... More

I Came here for lunch to treat my niece for her 22nd birthday. I've been to the Wild Cafe, which is the bistro at the hotel, it was a below average sunday lunch but having seen the website, i thought it should be a completely different experience and we were looking forward to try this Seafood restaurant esp when it was...
