The dinner…and breakfasts were delicious with plenty of choice and fresh local ingredients. The staff were all friendly and helpful too! Mr and Mrs Colvin
If you have had a long journey, why not relax with afternoon tea. Choose from the following:
Cornish Cream Tea: Home made scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam, served with a pot of freshly made tea or coffee – £5.50 per person.
Pentillie Afternoon Tea: A selection of home made sandwiches, cakes and scones, served with a pot of freshly made tea or coffee – £12.50 per person (min. 2 people).
*Add a glass of Prosecco for an additional £6.50 pp.
Please book in advance of your arrival to ensure we have made enough scones!
Why not order a picnic to enjoy while exploring our gardens or SE Cornwall during your stay at Pentillie. £16.50 pp. Picnics need to be ordered by 4pm for the next day, or can be ordered in advance of your stay.
We know it is a bore that we cannot offer dinner every night (see below), so for those evenings when you are feeling far too relaxed to move, but would like a quick bite and large glass(!) try our delicious supper offer (gluten, dairy free and vegetarian options available). It will be like the honesty bar and laid out in the kitchen. As hunger strikes, you pop your chosen dish in the AGA and hey presto! Delicious home-prepared supper! £18 pp. Pre-order by 12 noon or prior to arrival.
Breakfast is usually served between 8:30 and 9:30am. Wherever possible, we draw on the superb local produce available locally. Dry cured bacon and tasty sausages from local farms, our very own honey and apple juice, home-made jams, granola, breads and compotes – see sample menu here. All good stuff, designed to set you up for the day. (We’re proud to have received the Breakfast Award from Visit England again in 2013.)
Other produce for our breakfasts, suppers and picnics is sourced from the Tamar Valley, Warrens the butcher in Launceston (all his meat is supplied from within a 30 mile radius), the fish markets in Looe and Plymouth, and other local suppliers including the Cornish Crisp Company based in Callington!
We have a drinks license and a short, but carefully chosen, wine list. Soft drinks and spirits are also available in the honesty bar in the drawing room.
Pentillie is not a hotel in the traditional sense, just a very comfortable B&B. Though we’d like to, we’re not always able to serve dinner. However, we will always try to serve an evening meal when we have more than 8 guests staying in the castle (let us know if you are keen to dine with us on booking). Dinner is usually a short 3-course menu, so please advise us of any dietary requirements, likes or dislikes on booking. When we are unable to serve dinner, you are welcome to take advantage of the supper offer, or we are very happy to make a booking on your behalf at one of the fabulous restaurants or pubs in the local area. Taxis can also be arranged.
