The restaurant is the latest addition to the culinary scene in the port, and will showcase Sheridan’s signature style with “intriguing flavours and textures, cooked with flair and creativity” to create a “memorable” dining experience.
Acquired by David Barnard in 2017 and refurbished over the winter, the nine-bedroom establishment reopened in April. Sheridan joins from Sosban in south Wales, where he served as executive chef for two years. He appeared on BBC Two’s Great British Menu Finals in 2018 and 2019.
The new bar menu features his takes on Cornish classics, with an a la carte menu featuring the likes of Newlyn torched mackerel with tomato and basil, tempura oysters with pickled vegetables and parsley, and Great British Menu banana rice pudding with pickled berries and hay ice cream.
Barnard said: “Port Isaac has a thriving gastronomic scene with Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and our sister properties Port Gaverne Hotel and Pilchards café on the beach. We’re excited to reopen Stargazy Inn after significant refurbishment of the bar and restaurant to create a new destination restaurant and rooms for north Cornwall.”
