The Restaurant: The Duke of Cornwall is famous for its grand design. The Victorian vogue for elegance and extravagant proportion has provided us with a breathtaking legacy. Our beautifully appointed dining room is an AA Rosette and RAC Blue Riband awarded restaurant. We are serious about the food we serve and our menu is influenced by Plymouth's fresh West-Country farm and game produce, catch-of-the day fish and proximity to the continent by sea. Grand, but not grandiose, our dining room is illuminated by sparkling chandeliers and our atmospheric lounge is a warm and inviting area in which to enjoy aperitifs or morning coffee. Lounge Bar: Sink back into your Chesterfield and relax. Take coffee or afternoon tea in the lounge, whilst we take your bags to your room. Or if the sun has passed over the yardarm in the true maritime tradition of the city-by-the-sea, enjoy a drink at the bar. The lounge has space to allow you the privacy to gather your thoughts before exploring Plymouth, or to spend the rest of the evening in comfort before retiring after some excellent drinks and even a light snack.
