CORNWALL: Owner John welcomes you to historic Heskyn Mil for a Farm-to-Table dinner. Savour a delightful meal prepared by his wife, Ann. John and Ann take pride in the restaurants friendly service and the quality of its freshly prepared West Country produce. The farm’s ethos is to support local and reduce food waste. All food is sourced locally, even though this proves more expensive. A staff member grows seasonal vegetables and they have their own egg laying hens. They have relationships with the local farmers where they make sure to get the food that would otherwise struggle to be sold in order to reduce waste. Vegetables are chosen seasonally and are often picked in the morning for their guests to enjoy later the same day.
