Cornish Summer Tasting Evenings

9 August - 6 September 2018

There's nothing better than vibrant seasonal vegetables, fish landed that very morning and meat as fresh as you like. Cornwall truly is home to great food, so we're excited to announce that The Alverton and their sister hotel The Greenbank will be hosting a series of gourmet foodie events this summer.

Starting on the 26th July and running over a selection of dates, we're bringing the very best ingredients together from our chefs, and combining live open-air theatre cooking with traditional kitchen techniques.


Join us for six delicious courses, with an optional drinks flight, that celebrates all that makes Cornwall's food and drink the very best.

26th July – The Greenbank
9th August – The Alverton
23rd August – The Greenbank
6th September – The Alverton
