The Age Good Food Guide 2023 / One Hat

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Polperro have been recognised with one hat by The Age Good Food Guide 2023.

After one of the most challenging operating environments over the last few years, to be recognised at this calibre is absolutely a testament to the grit and hard work of our incredible teams.

Congratulations to our Executive Chef across both venues Gayan Pieris, Kenny Aranilla (Sous Chef), Blaz Razen (Sommelier & Restaurant Manager), Cassandra Hamilton (Bar Manager) and of course our entire team who make magic happen every single day.

We can’t wait to welcome everybody over summer!

” Contemporary : A sophisticated day in the country 15/20

A Scandi-chic pavilion nestled amongst ancient gums, the restaurant Polperro matches its preternatural good looks with food that’s almost too pretty to eat. Chef Gayan Pieris is a devotee of edible flowers, vibrant herbs and meticulous tweezer work, but his degustation goes beyond the superficial to deliver a keen test of the local. Snappy canapés kick off proceedings – a brined mackerel cake is sparked up with fermented lime, and a demitasse of Jerusalem artichoke soup hides under parsnip froth. The follow-up is a rich lamb pithivier, which makes a dramatic arrival in a charcoal-black pastry casing, a play in contrasts to the edible sunshine of an accompanying burrata in citrus and red-onion dressing. The procession of more than 10 dishes, across five courses, requires a designated driver if you’re to explore the estate wines in the way they deserve. Our recommendation? Accessorise your visit with a stay at the equally good-looking on-site accommodation.”
