Dine by the sea

“The South West has the best larder in Europe” — Michael Caines

Michael Caines has long been a champion of the South West and its outstanding larder. Working directly with local producers and suppliers is fundamental to his cuisine and to his ethos and values. Here at The Cove, Michael is able to utilise the abundance of fabulous and world-class produce and ingredients literally from his Cornish doorstep, including fish, meat, poultry, seasonal vegetables, and dairy products. Sustainable fishing and support for the Cornish fishing industry is vitally important to us all. Michael works only with sustainable seafood and shellfish.

Michael is also extremely focused on reducing the amount of single-use plastic across his portfolio. He and his team are dedicated to reducing its use wherever possible. Selecting produce from The Cove’s locality is one way to reduce the need for excessive plastic-wrapping.

The menus below are updated regularly and can be subject to change due to the seasonal availability of all the ingredients.

Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner; The Cove is the perfect place for that morning motivation, a quick light bite, or that indulgent evening meal as you watch the sun slowly set into the Atlantic. We are also extremely thrilled to offer guests a Cornish Afternoon Tea; complete with beautifully elegant French patisseries which mean you never have a reason not to visit…
