READ all about it... Emily has written her debut cook book to be released in May 2021, what a dream! Please subscribe to her newsletter www.emilyscottfood.com to receive news, bonus recipes and to be the first to pre-order her book.

Emily Scott is heading to the coast. We are delighted to be taking up residency at Watergate Bay this summer on the beach at the previous Restaurant Fifteen location. Summer days, July through to the end of September. A truly unique location overlooking the beautiful golden sands of the bay.

What you can expect to see... Fish and seafood from Cornish waters, courgettes with their delicate flowers, peas, broad beans and fennel. Risotto, crab salad, sourdough bread, mozzarella, fantastic herbs, kitchen garden leaves and sweet ripe tomatoes. Beautiful sweet strawberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries and all the beautiful stone fruits. Pies, galettes, tarts and vanilla seeded pannacotta with that perfect wobble.

We can't wait to see you all.

We had such a lovely lunch, the food was locally sourced fresh and dishes bought out the flavours so well, glad we got the chance to taste Emily cooking as we had heard so many favourable reports.
Really pleased we managed to get booked in before the pop up restaurant closes and Emily heads back to her normal kitchen.

Loved the feel and ambiance. We had one of the bet tables in the place and the staff were super attentive without being overly.
Would love to go again, but it will be fine by the end of the month 😳
Will definitely head to The Inn when we are next down

Wine over-priced.....very small helping first course....only 2 small scallops....main course good.....service very mediocre and amateur....not well trained or even friendly. Poor ambiance.....even allowing for social-distancing, place lacked any atmosphere whatsoever. The restaurant is closing very soon and going back to St Tudy...so why ask for a review? Overall, very moderate.

Excellent location, service and food. Limited menu choice but then the offering is based on freshness and seasonal availability. What we have was perfectly cooked and was extremely tasty. Each dish was well presented and constructed and was extremely tasty. We would definitely eat at an Emily Scott restaurant again in the future ( given that the one at Watergate Bay was a pop-up and so had a limited opening period).

It was our last day in Cornwall and we wanted to sign off in style. Emily and her fab team delivered in full & nailed all of the ingredients - the food was awesome, although you almost expected that. The unexpected was everything else that went into making it a special evening. “No faffing, no fussing” she promised - and delivered. The welcome was warm and friendly, the service was outstanding yet very chilled and laid back so that you felt part of what was going on, almost part of the team. And the view was spectacular.

The bread arrived an hour an a half after being seated, immediately followed by the starter - the waiter forgot to put our order in.
The main course was overcooked Halibut, and inedible mushroom risotto (the few bites from which caused stomach upset!! Seperate email sent to reservations. Risotto should be al dente, however it was runny, overcooked and had a nasty custard-like film on the top. It was cooked in so much poricini stock it is too rich, for proper vegetarians like me! Not appetising or edible.

We had a delicious dinner and the service was excellent - just enough time between courses and attentive staff without being intrusive. The cep butter and my scallops were two of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten!

Fantastic meal here overlooking Watergate bay. I’ve eaten in lots of michelin restaurants and I believe the cooking here was delicious and to a very high standard with excellent service 😊 great Covid measures in place too and felt very safe.

We were recommended this popup restaurant by the receptionist at our hotel. We had been to the location before when it was 15 and the location is exceptional.

The menu was simple and energetic in its form. We could have crossed any of the starters or mains. The stand out dish, you need to get your head around, was the cold Melon curry. It won first place but the rest of us also had great food.

We shall be watching where Emily Stone goes to next. Sadly we could not get another reservation as they were full.

Lovely.

We booked this as a treat for our last day in Cornwall and it did not fail to impress. Great food at a great price and fantastic views. Such a shame that this pop up will be closing down at the end of this month.

What a birthday treat for me :).
We had a table of 3 and sat looking as the sun was setting and surfers surfed the waves. From the beginning to the end we were treated like VIP's with the waiter showing us to our table and another smiley waiter explaining about the wines to the specials dishes.
Emily was in the kitchen cooking and we would recommend the specials, although the menu changes according to what local produce Emily sources. The fish was cooked so spectacular and fresh.
Special night and we look forward to coming to St Tudy's Inn. Thanks again :)

Excellent location, delicious seasonal food, breathtaking views of the surrounding beach and sea.
Would recommend visiting if in the area, car park close by if driving, alternatively, bus stop close to car park.

Nothing you will eat here happens by chance. Even the butter for your bread has been specially prepared. Predominantly fish with distinctive flavours and no wishy washy sauces. Sadly it won’t be at Watergate Bay much longer and reverting back to St Trudy

Aa soon as we arrived I new it was going to be good.

The view to the beach is great and the sunset just added some extra magic to the evening.

The service was really good, felt friendly and casual whilst being on point all the time. I think with the way things are right now they have handled the situation perfectly and it feels relaxed.

The food was delicious, it is not cheap but the quality of ingredients and the level of skilled cooking made it feel like good value. I'm not sure what they did to the tomato salad but it was beautiful and all the sauces were so tasty especially with the brill, you need to get an extra portion of bread just to mop it up. Desert was great, the panocota was delicious but my cheese course was better, I think having a cheese dish instead of a cheese board shows a real attention to detail that I'm fully on board with.

It was an excellent end to our holiday away and hopefully we will eat Emily Scott's food again some where else.

Peace out.
