Our sister property across the way is getting extremely excited, as Michelin starred chefs Nathan Outlaw and Alan Murchison are coming to The Idle Rocks in St. Mawes

Here at Idle Rocks we are proud to announce a series of Thursday night dinners, taking place over the winter period, in our luxury surroundings.

To mark the build up to Christmas, we are inviting all of our visitors past and present, to join us for a month of special evenings, created for  the food lovers among us.

The nights have been pioneered by our head chef and celebrated food expert, Mark Apsey, who is responsible for the creation and delivery of all our menus here at Idle Rocks.

Together with a small number of carefully hand-picked collaborators,  fellow chefs and trusted suppliers, Mark has created a collection of unique culinary events.

The series is spread across four memorable evenings. Starting with an evening in the company of Alan Murchison, Executive Chef of L’Ortolan, the Michelin starred restaurant in Berkshire, followed by an evening featuring Michelin starred chef Nathan Outlaw and then finishing up with a dinner with Rob Wing, of renowned local fishmonger; Wings of St Mawes.

Both Alan and Nathan have lengthy waiting lists for their own restaurants, so we are lucky to have them with us, for one night only; seriously, an exclusive opportunity to experience their extraordinary cooking.

Below is a preview of what’s in store, on each of the exclusive Thursday night events:
