Dane Watkins | Head Chef | The Cormorant Hotel Golant Fowey Cornwall Cormorant Hotel head chef Dane Watkins

During the spectacular Golant carnival we're offering the chance to enjoy the carnival and then stay in the village for an evening of fine dining.

We've got tables available in our restaurant on the evening of the Carnival, which means we're able to give you the chance to really make a day of your trip to Golant.

The Carnival takes place in the village on August 16 and we're offering a three course dinner for just £28 per person that evening, with £3 of that fee going to the Golant carnival fund.

So we're offering people the chance to enjoy the carnival before walking the short distance to The Cormorant for an aperitif on our terrace, overlooking the stunning Fowey River, before feasting on a delicious specially designed carnival menu in our rosette winning restaurant.

But we're not content to simply offer people one chance to dine in our restaurant and enjoy the stunning views we're lucky enough to have from our windows.

We've decided to offer two more similar opportunities for you to enjoy the cooking skills of our head chef Dane Watkins, who was trained by two separate Michelin star winning chefs.

On Wednesday, August 20, we want to showcase Dane's skills by offering a six course tasting menu for just £35 per person, again with a £3 donation going to the Golant Carnival fund.

The following day we're putting on a Tapas evening, with three delicious dishes on offer for just £10.

So why not take advantage of our Carnival special offer, or simply seize one of the other two chances to sample award winning food at special rates?

To whet your whistle here's a sneak peek at some of the fantastic dishes on Dane's Carnival dinner menu:

Chef's soup of the day; Celeriac Veloute, with roasted walnuts and truffle oil
