Chef Adam Handling is to open a sustainable restaurant and bar, Ugly Butterfly, in Carbis Bay, having trialled the concept in Chelsea, London.

Ugly Butterfly

The 65-cover restaurant is due to open on the Carbis Bay estate — currently hosting the G7 Summit — on 2nd August. The bar will offer another 65 covers, while there will also be two private dining tables.

All-day menus will be inspired by Cornwall and make use of local ingredients. Trims and offcuts from ingredients used in the resuarant will be used to make snacks for the bar.

Adam said: “Everything we do at our restaurants and bars is based on the location and surroundings.

“It’s super important to me to support the local suppliers, and Carbis Bay has a beautiful seaside and rural setting so we’ll be using more of the seafood and foraged ingredients that the area is well-known for.

“This area has already established a great reputation for food with some of the country’s best chefs and restaurants located here, and we are committed to adding to Cornwall’s dining scene.”
