Discover Dining at St. Moritz Hotel and Spa Near Rock & Polzeath
Jonathan Domé takes the helm at the hotel's restaurants and bars leading a band of dedicated and talented chefs, and front of house team. The two superb venues and blessed with one unique location. St Moritz sits within the culinary sweet spot of north Cornwall surrounded by abundant hedgerows, crop-filled fields and seas of fresh fish.

Our menus reflect the seasons and our chefs produce dishes where Cornwall’s natural larder can shine. The laid-back Shorecrest Restaurant delivers dining for guests and locals all year round with dishes such as baked hake served with polenta, king prawns, capers and a hazelnut crust, and Cornish Half lobster  with a mixed leaf salad fries and a tartar sauce.  Its bar serves cocktails and coffee throughout the day and the evening and serves Lounge Classics and Appetisers such as the St Moritz Burger and oysters from 2pm.

Poolside is the Sea Side café. With views across our leisure lawn down to the sea and to Stepper Point, the café serves up platefuls of crispy squid, cream teas and delightful desserts. The relaxed light space is a firm favourite with families, and walkers drop in while making their way along the coast path.

Also on offer from our kitchen are picnics and packed lunches and takeaway is available from the Sea Side café.

Shorecrest Restaurant

The Shorecrest Restaurant at St Moritz serves fresh, local, seasonal produce with chargrilled flavours from an open-plan kitchen.

The menu utilises the very best Cornwall’s larder has to offer with the likes of Porthilly Mussels, seasonal fish and woodfired roots on the menu. The cool interiors make it the perfect space for entertaining, celebrating or ruminating.

Open to both guests and non-residents, Shorecrest is open every evening from 6pm for dinner.

Shorecrest Bar

The Shorecrest Bar is the perfect spot for a daytime coffee, pre-dinner cocktail, a relaxed meal or tasty appetiser.

Located in the upstairs of our leisure building the bar’s outside terrace is a suntrap and a great spot for a daytime sunny sipping, or an early evening catch-up. Inside, cosy sofas, a wood burner and bar-side stalls, coupled with elegant interiors, make the Shorecrest Bar the ideal place to sample a craft ale, sparkly cocktail or creamy cappuccino.
