Win a gastro escape in Cornwall

The prize: An overnight stay for two, plus breakfast, at The Falmouth Arms.
The Falmouth Arms
Closing date: August 31, 2021

With first-rate restaurants, incredible scenery and (mostly) good weather, Cornwall is the UK’s staycation capital – and gourmet destinations such as The Falmouth Arms in Ladock are gearing up for a summer of foodie frolics.

When Kevin Viner was awarded a Michelin star at Pennypots in Falmouth in 1993, his restaurant was the first in Cornwall to receive the accolade – and one of only 20 in the UK to hold any number of stars. He retained the honour for nine years and his alumni of chefs (including Chris Eden and Paul Ripley) have continued the Michelin legacy across the county and beyond.

After a six-year stint as a private chef in Monaco (where he cooked for the Prince on occasion), Kevin returned to Cornwall to reignite his legacy. Taking over The Falmouth Arms near Truro with wife Jill, he’s transplanted the French-cooking-with-flair that earned him his accolades (he also won AA Chefs’ Chef of the Year ’98-’99) to a cosy country-pub setting.

Kevin’s classic dishes aren’t the only draw at this 17th century coaching inn. He and Jill have tastefully refurbished its four bedrooms to create a welcoming home-from-home for visitors exploring Cornwall’s wild countryside and striking coastline. These prove particularly popular with foodies who travel to taste Kevin’s signature dishes (such as duck à l’orange with hazelnuts and watercress) and don’t fancy the after-dark drive home through winding country lanes.

Next morning, guests can expect a first-class Cornish breakfast from Kevin and team: the kind of hearty fodder needed for a day of walking, shopping and feasting in staycation country.

In which year was Pennypots first awarded a Michelin star?
