Silks Dish of the Month: Trio of Pork

Trio of pork: It’s got to be saying something if it’s the choice dish of our new Silks Head Chef, Mark Treadwell.

Slow cooked confit of pork belly (roasted further for texture) is complimented by a slow braised pig cheek and a herb, spice and confit onion infused black pudding bonbon. C’est magnifique!

Our new menu is just one reason you need to head to Silks this week, call 01637 839048 to book your table today.


A stylish, succulent, superb new menu for Silks

A stylish, succulent, superb new menu for Silks

The Silks kitchen team has been very busy behind the scenes, and from a kitchen of locally sourced seafood, international cooking experience and an AA rosette comes our new menu, devised under the expert eye of Head Chef Mark Treadwell.

This new menu encapsulates everything we love about dining on the coast: style, substance and a little something special that only an AA rosette can bring to the table.

Celebrating an anniversary? The rich simplicity of poached lobster is a fantastic accompaniment to a family toast, or you could push the boat out with lobster thermidore; delicate, creamy, delicious. A fantastic spectacle as well as a superb dish!

Special input from Head Chef Mark Treadwell sees a grand array of seafood throughout the new menu, from locally sourced Newlyn crab cakes to dishes of peppery cayenne floured squid and expertly seared scallops; there’s just no excuse not to be a seafood fan at Silks.

Being so close to the sea, it would be an injustice not to feature a classic beer battered cod, complete with hand cut chips and a homemade tartare sauce. The crisp texture of a fine batter with such artisan accompaniments always, always goes down magnificently.

The show-stopper has to be the trio of pork, a delightful arrangement of slow cooked pork belly, cheek, and an expertly seasoned black pudding bonbon. Always served with seasonal vegetables, you’ll be getting a personal taste of Cornwall no matter which time in the year you visit.

Refuel after cliff path explorations with an exclusive Silks high tea for two; or for a sweet sugar rush during a romantic evening rendezvous pick a lemon & raspberry baked cheesecake, or perhaps a smooth hot dark & white chocolate fondant with luxurious clotted cream. Heaven.

This is just for starters, please contact Silks on 01637 839048 for the full menu and daily specials; be quick, our new dishes are already causing a stir!
