The Shore Restaurant offers a small seafood menu crafted using the best ingredients available on a daily basis. Ethically sensitive produce help us create our dishes, from day boat fish to local growers and farmers. Most of all, we want to make you happy when you are our guests and we always welcome feedback.
If you have any special requests (such as allergies, vegetarian or meat options) you are welcome to contact Bruce at the restaurant to discuss how we can meet your needs. Any dietary requirements must be notified at least 24 hours in advance of dining.
My philosophy is simple
I source the best quality and freshest fish from Newlyn market daily with emphasis on sustainability and quality and supporting the local fishermen.
By creating dishes focusing on local vegetables, some from my own garden, some from local farms, I write a menu which celebrates our county and country.
The Shore is a small family owned restaurant with just me in the kitchen (I am also the decorator, handyman, receptionist and occasional waiter)
I arrive early each day to make the sourdough bread (using organic flour from Jonathan Cook at Prior’s Flour Mill in Cambridge) and to prepare all of the fish and accompaniments for the menu. Everything here is made on site by myself so if you have any questions or dietary requirements, given notice, I can tailor my menu to suit you.
Your evening should be relaxed and laid back with little pomp or presumption. Please just relax and let us look after you, and don’t forget; if you would like anything you just need to ask and we shall do our best to please you.
