This year fans of the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival are going to get a special treat because they are going to be able to enjoy the taste of festival just a bit longer as it is due to last a bit longer when you add in some special ‘fringe’ dining events that are taking place to help celebrate the unique food festival. In addition, many cafes, restaurants, and pubs in the county are going to offer a fixed price menu for the week that includes the fest to encourage people to eat out at local establishments.
The festival menu is actually going to last for a whopping two weeks almost from September 21st all the way until October 7th and will be featured at over twenty different diners. Some of the pubs and restaurants that have agreed to run the menu include Nathan Outlaw’s Seafood & Grill along the north coast and the Queen’s Hotel in St. Ives also on the north coast.
On the South coast diners can try out the Barclay House in Looe or head on over to the Greenbank Hotel located in Falmouth for a sample of the week’s treasures. All of the participating diners will offer the festival menu at the low price of £15 for two courses for one person or three courses for £19 making it a steal.
It also is a great way to try out a new restaurant since you know you will not be paying much to try out the local chef. For instance, the Knightor Restaurant in Trethurgy is trying out the menu as one of the newest establishments in Cornwall it would be a great place for diners to start. Due to the low price you might want to book dinner tables now because they are sure to fill up fast!
