The freshest produce, locally sourced, flawlessly served

Simplicity, freshness and vibrancy are key to our menus, which reflect seasonal variations and are curated to bring the best of British cuisine to your plate.

With sustainability and the environment always in mind, our accomplished culinary team combine locally-caught fish and seafood with seasonal vegetables and coastal herbs, foraged within walking distance of the restaurant.

This approach means that The Nettlefold has quickly become one of the most renowned seafood restaurants in the south-west, serving dishes featuring lobsters and scallops, sea bass and sole, Brixham crab, oysters, Falmouth mussels, razor clams and prawns, all sustainably caught within a few miles of the island.

An unforgettable and unique dining experience on an extraordinary island

Named after the hotel’s founder, theatre producer Archie Nettlefold, his eponymous restaurant offers a less formal dining experience than The Grand Ballroom but nevertheless retains an air of Art Deco elegance and exclusivity.

The Nettlefold is a real celebration of the Devon coast and our aim is to delight you with a selection of canapes, larger plates, sharing small plates and platters, along with a handful of other non-seafood based dishes to suit all tastes.

Blending dazzling sea views with local produce, The Nettlefold is the ultimate seafood dining destination

What a fabulous hotel. It was like walking back in time: the decor was amazing. The staff were fabulous and the food and drinks were out of this world. Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were attentive without being invasive. Would definitely go back again.
