Cornwall Living 2018

Food with a view

Enjoy sumptuous flavours and scintillating estuary views this winter at No 1 Rock Road.

Regular readers of Cornwall Living will already have heard that No 1 Rock Road in Rock was taken over in May this year by husband and wife team, Rohan and Emma. As you might expect in one of Cornwall’s premier destinations, the summer flew by, bringing immediate success for the pair (much to their relief!). Now, however, Emma tells us: “We’re concentrating our efforts on our first winter.”

“We’re very excited about Christmas and the New Year. With such fantastic views over the estuary and the promise of Padstow’s eagerly anticipated, annual New Year’s fireworks display, we believe that this is the perfect venue for enjoying
the festivities.”

Since taking over, the couple have firmly established a reputation for great service and a menu that offers wholesome and honest food. While affordable, the whole menu, where possible, is built from local, seasonal produce, and we all know how much difference that can make! There’s also a well-stocked bar, offering a great range of beers, wines, coffees, shakes and smoothies, and in the morning and early afternoon, you can pop in for breakfast, or enjoy a cream tea – the perfect stop on your walk around the Camel estuary.

Rohan is from South Africa, and over the years he’s really honed his ability to cook seafood. In the short time of running the No 1 kitchen, he’s already become known locally for his legendary Seafood Platter. While you’ll need to book this in advance over the winter months, it comes highly recommended!

In the final run up to Christmas, if you’re still looking to book your Christmas function, or festive family gathering, Emma, Rohan and the team are ready to take bookings – just head to the website to find out how. While there are many fine places to eat in Cornwall, and many beautiful spots from which to watch the water, there are few that combine the two as well as No 1 Rock Road. But don’t just take our word for it!
