New restaurant is finishing touch

After a five-year renovation project at the Mullion Cove Hotel, the stunning new Glenbervie Bar restaurant has opened to the public.
Since acquiring Mullion Cove in 2006, the Grose family has been busy restoring it to its former Victorian glory, and work has finally been completed.
Delighted owner Matthew Grose said: “After six years knocking lumps out of the place we've crossed the finishing line.
“The hotel is looking great and we're looking forward to hosting guests in the new restaurant over the forthcoming season.
“It's a beautiful spot looking out across the cove and sea, and our chefs have created a classic bistro style menu using wonderful ingredients grown or fished locally on The Lizard.”
The restaurant's designer, Falmouth based Collective Studio, took inspiration from the hotel's Art Deco heydays to give the bar an elegant 1930s feel.
It is named after The Glenbervie, which ran aground on the nearby coastline in 1902 carrying a cargo of 600 barrels of whisky and several hundred barrels of rum and brandy.
Since it was easy to reach her at low tide she was the toast of locals for many years. All crew and what was left of the cargo were saved.
The new restaurant will be open to staying guests and non-residents from 11am for snacks, drinks, lunch, cream teas and dinner, as well as pre-dinner cocktails for diners enjoying a four-course tasting menu at the Atlantic View, Mullion Cove Hotel's fine dining restaurant.
