Chef Emily Scott, who previously ran the Harbour Restaurant in Port Isaac, has taken the helm of the pub in St Tudy, near Bodmin, and plans to introduce a menu of “beautiful, seasonal food” using Cornish produce.
Scott said: “The St Tudy Inn had a reputation for consistently good food under its previous ownership. I am looking to build on this but also to put my stamp on the customer experience as a whole.”
The St Tudy’s new menu features dishes such as squash, chickpea, potato and vine tomato stew, lemon sole with herb dressing and Sharp’s Doom Bar ale battered gurnard with rustic chips, peas and tartare sauce.
A selection of pub classics will also be available as well as bar snacks including pork pies and cheese straws.
Scott was named as Food Magazine’s Best South West Chef in 2013 and has also been nominated as a “Local Food Hero”.
Lucie Billingsley, who previously worked at the Bistro in Fowey, has joined the St Tudy Inn as front of house manager.
Scot added: “I am lucky to have a young and enthusiastic team and we are working with some great producers and suppliers who are very supportive in what we are trying to achieve here.”
