Restaurant Meudon chalks up top accolade in first year!
We're celebrating after being awarded Silver in the Restaurant of the Year category in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2021/22, less than a year after first opening!
The competition, which is now in its 20th year, saw an increased 125 entries. Winners were announced on 3 February, with the organisers congratulating the resilience of this year’s finalists in an ever-challenging environment.
Accepting the award, General Manager Samantha Banks said: “I am absolutely blown away with this achievement and so proud of our team who are all new but have come together under the stewardship of our Restaurant Manager Stephen Mouser and Executive Head Chef Darren Kerley to deliver something exceptional. We started out with a clear vision and it’s extremely gratifying that this has been recognised.”
The aspirational Cornish setting of Hotel Meudon is integral to the food and drink being served, from the bountiful fresh fish and seafood to locally farmed meats and seasonal game. Menus are underpinned by a nod to Nouvelle cuisine, reflecting the hotel’s heritage. Diners can look forward to relaxed fine dining, from the lunchtime Prix Fixe menu to the creative a la carte evening fare, with exceptional desserts and patisserie.
“Cornish by birth, chef Darren has worked at some of the best establishments in and outside of London including Bob Bob Ricard, Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons and the Dorchester, and it’s a real treat to see this talent transferred to this beautiful part of Cornwall,” adds Samantha.
In addition to this, Hotel Meudon has also just added a Taste of the West Gold award to its tally in both the Hotel and Restaurant categories.
