Review on The Shore Restaurant

The Shore Restaurant opened in the summer of 2015 in Penzance, an historic port on the south facing shores of Mount's Bay in Cornwall. It's the first solo restaurant from esteemed Scottish chef Bruce Rennie, who has impeccable credentials having worked alongside several big names in the industry, such as Martin Wishart, Gary Rhodes, Robbie Millar and Rick Stein. Set in the centre of town a short walk from the harbour, the modern dining room has clean lines and it is noted for its relaxed and welcoming ambience.

Bruce is passionate about the native and natural larder and this shows in his creative use of quality seasonal produce, mainly sourced from trusted local suppliers. Given the name of the restaurant, it is no surprise that seafood from the day boats is the star of the show, with dishes such as lobster and spider crab with cocktail sauce and gem lettuce, followed by a main course of monkfish, Summer vegetable minestrone, orzo pasta and basil. Prettily displayed desserts close the show with strawberry semifreddo, basil and meringue or valrhona manjari chocolate delice paired with hazelnut ice cream and honeycomb.

The concise wine list has been carefully thought out to complement the dishes and there's also a good selection of gins, alongside local craft and continental beers.
