Springer Spaniel, Launceston
Traditional Cornish pub from a former Mastechef winner
On the Launceston to Plymouth road is a new venture by Anton Piotrowski, the 2012 winner of Masterchef and his head chef Ali who have been working together for the past 10 years. Eight of us went for a family lunch on bank holiday Saturday.
From the outside it feels very much like a traditional Cornish pub but the food is why you go here though, it was great. Stylish, simple food with great flavours and the odd pleasurable twist. The duck pancakes were particularly good, as was the steak suet pudding. The service was fantastic and the lovely staff brought the kids’ lunch within seconds along with some great wine and local beer.
The whole family left happy, even Grandad who picked up the very reasonable bill. As my banker brother-in-law pointed out, “when you factor in the pricing in comparison to a quality London restaurant, this place is off the chart!” The outskirts of Launceston just got a little better!
