The Stepping Stone

The Stepping Stone was founded out of a passion for great food, fresh ingredients and friendly service. Tucked away on Polmorla Road, the team serves a selection of modern British cuisine using the best local Cornish produce, drawing on Head Chef Ryan Tomkins’ 20 years of experience from a wealth of establishments, from gastropubs to Michelin acclaimed restaurants. Trudi Luck fronts the restaurant, welcoming guests with friendly yet professional service, and her passion for fantastic food and wine makes for a memorable dining experience.

Both the lunch and evening menus comprise of some absolutely mouth watering options and for lunch, most courses are available in either small or large portions, perfect if you’re just popping in for a light bite to keep you going as you continue enjoying some retail therapy. There’s a range of delicious sandwiches available, and our taste buds are tingling just thinking about the Cornish sirloin steak and caramelised onion filling. A set lunch menu is also available during the week offering two courses for £12 and three for £15.

In the evening, it’s hard to choose from the impressive range of options, but we’d certainly be tempted by the pan-seared scallops to start, served with sautéed leeks and pancetta, followed by the trio of Cornish sea bass, hake and plaice in a garlic and herb butter – delicious!
