Our bacon, sausages, black pudding and hogs pudding come from brilliant local butcher, Ian Lentern in Penzance. Our smoked fish is landed and smoked at Newlyn (1 mile away). Bread is baked by Vickys an award winning local artisan bakers.
We try to make everything else ourselves. Homemade cake or biscuits are served on arrival. Jams, marmalades, yoghurts, muesli and granola are all made here at Venton Vean. We even make the tortillas which accompany our Mexican breakfasts. All breakfasts are freshly cooked to order.
We love vegetarian and vegan food and offer a delicious range of interesting and unusual vegetarian and vegan options (see below). We also regularly cater to gluten free and coeliac diets (we have got some great recipes for gluten free cakes, pancakes and muffins) and we can provide oat or soya milk with prior notice.
Choice of cereals (including our homemade muesli and/or granola), fruit juice, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, teas & coffee.
Artisan breads with our homemade jams and marmalades (current preserves include lemon marmalade with juniper, blood orange marmalade with aperol, strawberry jam with lime & black pepper, spiced plum jam and fig & pomegranate jam).
