The site has been closed over the winter for a major refurbishment, but Sheridan will relaunch it on 11 April as a ‘destination restaurant with rooms’.
The chef, who represented Wales on Great British Menu in 2018 and will also appear in the 2019 series, says dishes will make use of “fish from Port Isaac day boats and lobster from pots in the bay, as well as foraged, fermented and preserved wild foods”.
Sheridan will introduce a new tasting menu, while a la carte options will include torched mackerel with cucumber and dill; Cornish Lamb with onions and wild garlic; and a lobster and crayfish butty.
The Stargazy Inn was acquired in 2017 by David Barnard, who also owns Port Isaac’s Port Gaverne Hotel and Pilchards Café.
Sheridan was previously executive chef at Sosban in Llanelli, Wales, which was named The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year for Wales in 2013. It closed in February after eight years with the team admitting to struggling with the rising costs of running the site.
