The Greenhouse, the Lizard

The Greenhouse, the Lizard

Ensconced by rich countryside and only a stone’s throw from Helford and a plethora of chocolate box fishing villages, you can easily fill up hours and days with adventure. Explore the winding country lanes and pop out at little coves, enjoying the Lizard Peninsula’s unique landscapes. Then, when you are ready to refuel, there is no better way to reward yourself than with a plate full of deliciously crafted food, plucked from around the county. Cue, the Greenhouse.

Run by chefs and top duo, Leonie and Neil Woodward, the Greenhouse has long been stamped on the culinary map. Running in tandem with the seasons, it celebrates local cuisine by forging strong partnerships with Cornish producers, farmers and fishermen. Using local rare breed meat, vegetables and catch of the day, the menu continually evolves to include the freshest, seasonal fare.

Serving dinners throughout the week, you can secure yourself a table to try a light main or go all in for three equally enticing courses. And why not? Wizards of their craft, each dish is lovingly pieced together using complementary flavours and tantalising zing, zests and bursts for a sensory sensation. Keep an eye out for the fried salt seabass tostadas starter with taramasalata, coriander and chilli salsa and pickled onions, followed by the baked scallops main with seaweed and lemon butter.

If you are a fan of desserts, rest assured the fun doesn’t stop at savoury. Offering a delectable selection, you can choose from rich treats like the chocolate delice with whey butterscotch, caramelised banana and banana parfait. Or, for something more fruity, opt for the fresh cream pavlova with passion fruit curd and succulent, fresh mango. Swill down your meal with your drink of choice and fall into foodie euphoria.

To guarantee yourself a table at the Greenhouse, we recommend booking in advance. Located in the centre of the village, the bistro is a popular choice amongst visitors and locals alike and is regularly fully booked. For some extra inspiration to take home with you, you can also try their bread making classes too.
