Many thanks for taking the time to review your time with us at the Scarlet. It saddened me to read you had such a disappointing experience with us. Our restaurant supervisor was under the impression you were happy with the desserts and drinks you were given as a gesture of good will, unfortunately we had clearly misread the situation. I...

The food in the Scarlet restaurant is much better than what you would expect for Hotel Food. High Quality Fine dining, served by excellent staff, in rather weird hipster uniforms. We expected to eat well in Cornwall, looking forward to going back
