New Yard Restaurant

Eat the seasons at New Yard Restaurant in south west Cornwall

As part of the centuries-old Trelowarren Estate, New Yard Restaurant luxuriates in a truly bucolic setting. Swathed by lush Cornish meadows and ancient woodland, it’s found at the heart of the Estate within a historic stable block.

The Yard’s humble buildings have been thoughtfully restored to feel crisply modern but still suffused with memories of their agricultural past. Light floods into the restaurant through vast windows and soaks softly into the decor’s warm woods and traditional colours. Crackling fires in winter layer extra warmth onto the already abundantly hospitable welcome. In summer, live the lord-of-the-manor dream by dining alfresco to the sound of swallows joyfully swooping.

A philosophy of sustainability and environmental accountability prevails across the whole Trelowarren Estate and is proudly championed by New Yard’s kitchen. Under head chef Jeffrey Robinson’s stewardship, seasonality and local provenance rule. As much produce as possible comes from the Estate, with the walled garden supplying abundant fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. The chefs’ foraging expeditions turn up wonderfully fresh mushrooms, among other native ingredients.

You’ll appreciate the dedication of Jeffrey’s close-knit and imaginative team when you taste the exquisite fruits of their labours. Small plates let your palate roam far and wide; take the adventure one step further with the ten course evening tasting menu. Every dish is elegant and refined without being fussy or overthought. Expect the seasons to be brought into vivid focus in combinations such as oysters with horseradish or brambles with chocolate and honeycomb.
