Details for Cornish Idle Rocks hotel and restaurant revealed

David Richards, the chairman of luxury car company Aston Martin, has announced details of the restaurant at the Idle Rocks, his new hotel in St Mawes, Cornwall.

He says it will offer "good old-fashioned hospitality, simplicity and warmth" and showcase the "fabulous produce" on the hotel's doorstep.

However, since the Richardson Group relinquished the lease on the property in September 2012, the hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment and reconfiguration. It will reopen with 20 bedrooms in June, when it will provide competition to St Mawes' best known hotel, the 29-bedroom Tresanton, owned by Olga Polizzi.

The driving force behind the 65-seat restaurant overlong the harbour is head chef Peter Conlin, who was previously at the helm of the kitchen at the Trump International Golf Links, near Aberdeen.

"His food exemplifies what we do - excellence, vibrancy and simplicity," said Richards.

"With a more relaxed menu during the day, the menu will be designed to give people the opportunity to graze whilst soaking up the sun and views from the terrace. In the evening we will step it up a gear with a full a la carte menu with daily specials that are cooked 'over the coals' on our Josper Grill."

Conlin, who will oversee an Elro induction kitchen, will work alongside general manager, Josie Simmcox, former general manager of the Malmaison in Aberdeen.
