"Perched high on the cliffs above Whitsand Bay near Millbrook in south-east Cornwall is this great little restaurant. They serve the best fish, all sourced from local suppliers, and I believe it's one of the finest views in the country. My perfect summer escape."

Laura Allnatts Little Black Book.


Coast Magazine 

Jamie Oliver & Rick Stein might hog the limelight in Cornwall but we'd heard word that chef Matt Corner is one to watch. His restaurant that is aptly called The View is located high on the cliffs overlooking Whitsand Bay. An understatded chic affair, Matt Corner lets the food- and the panoramis view- do the talking, employing an array of fresh seafood and premium local ingredients. It's all about deliciously simple but persuasive combinations here.

There are great local pubs and  a gem of a restaurant,
The View.


The Guardian 

Not in London but this unprepoccessing little place above Whitsand Bay, is well worth mentioning and a real find. It's far superior and far less expensive than Rick Stein's places in Padstow on the north coast. I had sardines that had een simply grilled and not fiddled around with followed by an exceptional piece of turbot. All local suppliers and the head chef/owner  Matt Corner is notably talented. Also, the name of the restaurant is no shallow claim as the view across the sea to Rame Head is breathtaking.

Dinner cranks up the feelgood factor further. It's a ten minute journey to chef Matt Corner's restaurant, The View, and what it's spartan interior lacks, it's cooking makes up for - steamed mussels in shallots, white wine and garlic, and an uterly sublime saddle of roast venison with apple & fig compote.
