Chef de Partie


The Nare is the 5 star country house hotel by the sea and has been Cornwall's highest rated luxury hotel for over 30 years. Renowned for its traditional, unobtrusive service and spectacular sea views over Carne Beach, the hotel offers standards of comfort and service that are increasingly difficult to find.

The Nare is set in some 8 acres and features 41 spacious rooms and suites, a traditional dining room, the fine dining Quarterdeck restaurant, and a comprehensive range of leisure facilities including tennis court, croquet lawn, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a health spa, and a classic 38’ motor launch, Alice Rose.

The addition of The Nare's new Whittington Suites - four exceedingly comfortable and spacious sea view suites at the western end of the hotel - means there are more opportunities for chefs to join the well-established team.


We have a moderate-sized brigade which runs 2 kitchens.

Our traditional dining room has 1 AA rosette and serves breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. The food here is silver served and a firm favourite with our residents. Intense services for 60-70 guests each night.

The Quarterdeck has been recently awarded 2 AA rosettes. Lunch can be extremely busy with cuisine best described as Bistro/Brasserie. Dinner is a finer affair with a seasonal limited a la carte restaurant where the chefs may show their talent and flair using modern methods of cuisine and presentation. A very seasonal restaurant where you earn your stripes in the summer and winter is a time for development and planning.
