New head chef brings award nomination to Cornish hotel restaurant

Newly appointed head chef Oliver Pierrepoint has settled into his role at the luxury hotel restaurant Driftwood in Cornwall by being nominated for an industry award.

The seaside boutique hotel appointed Pierrepont last month, who brought his “wealth” of experience from Michelin-starred restaurants in London and the Home Counties.

Pierrepoint’s new role has seen him bring his signature style of cooking to the restaurant, launching a new menu incorporating modern French and European flavours and includes dishes such as AnyHoe Park Deer, Potato Galette, Beets, Smoked Bone Marrow and Wild Cornish Monkfish, Gnocchi, Ceps, Hazelnut Pesto and Elderberry Caper.

As such the restaurant has just been nominated for an award in the True Foodies Restaurant Awards.

Pierrepont said: “I’m so happy to have joined such a fantastic restaurant and I’m really grateful to be able to incorporate my own style of cooking and put my stamp on the food offering at the hotel. It already feels like I have been here forever and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for me at Driftwood.”

Paul Robinson, owner of Driftwood, added: “We are thrilled that Olly has already settled in so well and brought his expertise to our award-winning restaurant. We’ve had some great feedback from the new menu so far and we hope that the success will continue.”
