Experience Hooked on the Rocks

Hooked on the Rocks’ ‘Land, Sea & Allotment’ evening.

Back with a bang from their usual winter closure, the team at Hooked on the Rocks is excited and ready to open their doors again in time for spring!

Following the success of last year’s refurbishment and introduction of new Head Chef, George Morgan, the team at Hooked on the Rocks are more excited than ever to deliver another year of delicious seafood served in fashion overlooking the stunning Cornish coastline. Guests can expect to be served only the best locally sourced and most sustainable produce. Alongside beautiful wines, friendly service and panoramic views, the menu will feature their signature Falmouth crabs, lobsters and wild mussels; daily specials and beautiful tapas bursting with big flavours, perfect for getting round the table and sharing with your loved ones.

After success of the first one, Hooked on the Rocks are excited to announce their gastronomic evening, ‘Land, Sea & Allotment’, taking place on Friday 1st March. With tickets costing £45 per head guests will hear directly from some of the restaurant’s suppliers, gaining perspective and knowledge of their produce. Guests can choose from three bespoke menus – Land (meat), Sea (fish) and Allotment (vegetarian) – each designed working closely with suppliers, with beautiful wine pairings complementing the food.
