A new addition for 2023, head chef Jack Clayton joins the Scarlet Restaurant in Mawgan Porth
Scarlet Hotel, one of Cornwall’s most talked-about adults-only hotels and restaurant which perched on the southwest coastal path, has appointed Jack Clayton as the latest head chef of its sea-view restaurant in Mawgan Porth.
Arriving with a striking CV, Jack started his cooking career in 2009, achieving three rosettes, two Bib Gourmand awards, and the Nottingham Head Chef of the year award.
Jack’s move to Scarlet comes with a lifelong passion for sustainability, fusing flavours and foraging. His menu is centred on showcasing the journey of each ingredient, from the catching of the fish through to the artful presentation. The chef’s plans for the restaurant include coastal foraging courses for hotel guests and achieving a Michelin green star in 2023.
Scarlet’s restaurant is open daily to both residents and non-residents for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, with menu highlights including sea trout pastrami, Philip Warren’s lamb rump and chocolate choux with hazelnut. In the evenings, diners can enjoy a fine dining experience in with a seven-course tasting menu, inspired by Jack’s commitments to organic local produce.
