Celebrated chef Emily Watkins of The Kingham Plough in Oxfordshire will be overseeing the menus in her role as consultant chef. She will work closely with head chef Jack Clayton to offer guests a range of seasonal dishes using locally-sourced ingredients, some of which - including lamb, potatoes and onions - will be reared and grown on the nearby Antony Estate. It is a dream for many chefs to have such a fantastic array of local, seasonal ingredients at your fingertips,’ says Emily Watkins. Cornwall really offers us the chance to put the freshest ingredients on our menus. Our ethos in the kitchen is to cook simple things beautifully and let the quality of the produce really speak for itself.’

Head chef Jack Clayton was most recently at The Gurnard’s Head in West Cornwall, and is passionate about fish and fresh produce.

We want to cater for the village community, but also to bring gastronomic devotees in from far and wide,’ explains Tremayne Carew Pole. We understand that keeping the price point affordable is the key to this and I’m personally so excited about bringing a chef of Emily’s stature to this forgotten corner of Cornwall.’

Part of the building will be used as a General Store, a hybrid farm and community shop, which will offer both local essentials and the best of Cornish artisanal products, alongside a range of community services.
