LUX Restaurant & Bar Awards 2019

Page 106 LUX Restaurant & Bar Awards 2019 The Shore Restaurant is a small independent fish restaurant with just 24 covers, offering a fixed multi-course menu. Utilising its proximity to the coast to its advantage, the Shore Restaurant welcomes locals and visitors alike and provides them with delicious, fresh delicacies, all prepared in-house by Chef and Owner Bruce Rennie. Bruce has captained the kitchens for some of the top chefs in the country, including Michelin starred Restaurant Martin Wishart in Edinburgh, Michelin starred Shanks in Northern Ireland, Gary Rhodes and Rick Stein. This experience has given him the tools, knowledge and passion to create dishes that are truly delicious and showcase the fresh fish in all their glory. Focusing on local produce, Bruce aims to ensure freshness by sourcing his fish, herbs and vegetables, as much as possible, from suppliers as little as two miles away from his establishment. As such, guests can rest assured that when they dine at the Shore Restaurant they are receiving the best, freshest meals possible, prepared by a true craftsman. Running the kitchen alone, Bruce is supported by a team of dedicated waiting staff, who aim to offer guests an exceptional standard of hospitality that matches the quality of the dishes served at the Shore Restaurant. Small and simply lit with comfortable décor, the waiters create a friendly, welcoming ambiance, with background music and amenable staff. Located in the picturesque Cornish coastal town of Penzance, Shore Restaurant offers a small seafood menu crafted using the best ingredients available on a daily basis. To celebrate the eatery’s success in this year’s Restaurant & Bar Awards we profile it and share an insight into the techniques it employs to ensure every diner enjoys a truly first-class experience.

To ensure freshness, the restaurant uses both the Coravin and Verre de Vin systems, and as such guests enjoy only the finest, best-kept wine possible. Recently, the Shore Restaurant further enhanced its service offering by opening an exclusive private dining space near the kitchen, where guests can enjoy a full view of the preparation process and speak with Bruce. Seeking to build upon its success even further, the Shore Restaurant will be working, over the coming months, to showcase this new space to its best possible advantage and grow its already impressive array of satisfied diners. Alongside this, Bruce has also been approached to create a cookbook inspired by his work running the Shore Restaurant, and this development and others will ensure that he continues to enhance his reputation in the culinary market over the coming years.
