New Chef and the NYR
We are so excited to officially welcome our brilliant new chef Jeffrey Robinson to head up the New Yard Restaurant in the old stable yard.
Jeff built a fine reputation as chef and owner of The Loft in St Ives after working in London for a number of years and he is passionate about ethical sourcing of ingredients and animal welfare.
Jeff is a fantastic ‘fit’ with all we hold dear at Trelowarren. Together we’ve created an exceptional menu of simple dishes, beautifully prepared which celebrate the produce of the woodlands, fields, rivers and seas of this wonderful part of the world.
Jeff’s arrival is exciting news both for the visitors holidaying in Trelowarren’s luxury self-catering cottages and for the local diners who frequent the New Yard Restaurant.
His new menu is full of treats including homemade sourdough bread with hand-whipped, flavoured butters, Cornish oysters served with crisp seaweed, mackerel and other catches of the day brought over by fisherman John Tonkin from neighbouring Cadgwith. Cornish beef fillet and home-grown pumpkin risotto are garnished with herbs, leaves and flowers foraged from the estate; beetroot is smoked over lavender stalks and oranges barbequed over the New Yard’s open fires.
“This is an exciting new challenge for me and it’s fantastic to be working alongside like-minded people,” says Jeff. “Wherever possible we’re using the best small local suppliers in the area to show off just how good the local produce is. It’s a great thing to go home to my family in Lelant each day feeling really proud of the things we’re achieving at Trelowarren.”
Jeff Robinson will be making sure the New Yard Restaurant is one of the jewels in the crown of Trelowarren. To see more have a browse at www.newyardrestaurant.co.uk
