Returning for it’s second year…
On Thursday night, treat yourself to a place at our Opening Night Banquet. Cooked over fire by our Cornwall-based friends at Woodfired Canteen, this will be a laid-back, family affair to ease you in to the festivities. This year we welcome a very special guest in Simon Stallard of the Hidden Hut – the hugely popular restaurant hidden in a little bay on the Cornish coast – who will be joining forces with Ben Quinn at the grills. A menu inspired by the summer, cooked in front of us over live fire with the very best Cornish produce.
Tucked down on a remote sandy beach with no road access and completely off grid, the Hidden Hut cooks up huge atmospheric open-air feasts for their diners throughout the year. Feast tickets sell out in a matter of minutes after their release – in 2017, over 22,000 people applied for just 600 covers over their summer season, making it the hottest restaurant ticket in the UK.
Simon’s cooking techniques have become iconic in Cornwall – from fire pits in the sand to wind-chime fish smokers and wood-fired rotisseries – his feasts are influenced by the smouldering fires and field-to-fork Cornish produce that fill his outdoor beach kitchen. The Hidden Hut (HarperCollins) is Simon’s first book.
Woodfired Canteen was founded by husband and wife team Ben and Sam Quinn. They have a simple purpose: “To be good people, cooking good food, for good people.”
This purpose has led the couple to: lay tables for charities with the most important stories to tell; work alongside like-minded individuals, helping them reach their own goals; and cook food using ingredients in support of small growers and individuals who have similar beliefs.
This is a 3 course dinner which includes all drinks. Kids tickets are available for those aged 14 or under. Includes soft drinks.
