In the heart of Cornwall’s countryside, and set amongst 66 acres of meadows, woodland and oak-lined streams, Coombeshead Farm is a farm, five bed guesthouse, restaurant and bakery created by chefs Tom Adams of London’s Pitt Cue and April Bloomfield of NYC’s The Spotted Pig. The drill is a regularly changing five-course set dinner, served in a single sitting in a stunning converted barn. It’s rustic, unfussy fare utilises foraged materials to back up the in-house cured pork and excellent local organic meats.
Dinner is served Thursday to Sunday inclusive each week, beginning at 7pm. The offering changes regularly depending on the season and what the farm is producing. Dinner is £65 per person and is available to non residents also. Payment for dinner is required when booking.
Please support local farmers during your stay.
