Sustainable Restaurant Review: The Scarlet Hotel, Cornwall

Following the Sustainable Hotel Review of The Scarlet Hotel by Lucy Cornes in Edition 20, which focussed on its features as a hotel, I went to The Scarlet Hotel near Newquay to review its restaurant.

Eco Credentials: 5 out of 5
The kitchen has all the latest kit: all induction rather than gas. Induction is by far the most efficient way to cook. Heat is generated directly in the pot or pan, rather than by electrical coils or burning gas. Food is always seasonal, and local wherever possible.

Food Quality: 4 out of 5
I sampled the Winter Lunch menu. Good quality and healthy. More vegetarian options on the menu would provide a wider choice and enhance the quality of experience for vegetarians. Vegetarianism is also good for the environment.

Views and Decor: 5 out of 5
Located on the Cornish coast overlooking the ocean, there are few restaurants in the world capable of competing with the view. Inside, an exceptionally tasteful selection of modern features. You’re treated to some comfy cushions at the table!

Affordability: 4 out of 5
The Scarlet has paid attention to the affordability of its restaurant menu, and they have done well. You won’t need to save up for a visit.
