Dining Out in St Austell, Cornwall
Austell's Restaurant, St Austell
Austell's 2 AA rosette restaurant is set in tranquil Carlyon Bay on the approach road to the beach with 6 superb golf courses and the Eden Project within 20 minutes drive, Austell's is the perfect fine dining centre to round off a day's golf or sightseeing. Brett Camborne-Paynter, chef-proprietor, came to Carlyon Bay having recently won 2 AA rosettes for the Parkside in Buckinghamshire. With a classical training from top restaurants including The Ivy, The Waldorf and The Four Seasons where he worked alongside Jean-Christophe Novelli from Hell's Kitchen fame, Brett's clean, no-nonsense approach is complemented by his team's attention to detail. A genuine commitment to using the very best local ingredients, respecting seasonal variations, means that the menu changes regularly but the food on your plate is always prepared and cooked with understanding, passion and care. The service is truly Cornish, warm and friendly yet attentive with the clear aim of making every visit a pleasure. Perhaps it is the combination of all the above and Brett's innovative flair that gained us 2 AA rosettes within 6 months of opening.
