To make the most of the wonderful seasonality of local produce, and to enjoy it at it’s best, we are proud to offer ‘Eat the Seasons’ dinners. These take place once a month, and will showcase the local produce, much of it from the Pentillie Estate. A set menu of five courses will also include a drink on arrival for £39.50pp. Booking essential. Dates available include Thursday 29th September and Saturday 22nd October. Additional dates to be added later.
If you have had a long journey, why not relax with a pot of tea and something delicious on the terraces, or in front of a roaring log fir in the drawing room. 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 – £8.50 per person.
Pentillie Afternoon Tea: A selection of home made sandwiches, cakes and scones, not to mention the chef’s specials (currently passionfruit filled chocolate tartlets and mini Paris-Brest) served with freshly made tea or coffee – £18.50 per person (min. 2 people) or £25 per person to include a glass of Prosecco. For more information click here. Available to non-residents. To book call 01579 350044, or email us.
Please book in advance of your arrival to ensure we have made enough scones! Afternoon teas are available for non-resident guests – please book in advance.
Why not order a picnic to enjoy while exploring our gardens or SE Cornwall during your stay at Pentillie. £16.50 per person. 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 ‘D-I-Y’ supper menu (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 per person. Pre-order by 12 noon or prior to arrival.
“We also sampled the ‘DIY supper’ the first night, and found it to be very tasty, relaxed and enjoyable – so much so that we booked this again for our second night.” C.G. Farnham
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 Breakfast Menu. All good stuff, designed to set you up for the day. (We’re proud to have received the Breakfast Award from both Visit England and the AA in 2014.)
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, house wines and spirits are also available in the honesty bar in the drawing room.
Allergens and Dietary Requirements: Please note that we ask anyone eating at Pentillie who suffers from an allergy of any type to inform our staff. While we take every precaution to label all allergens in foods this is not always possible, and we would hate to inadvertently cause any illness from ingredients not easily identified in dish names or descriptions e.g. celery is often used to season dishes.
