Each January we close our doors for two weeks to focus on giving the restaurant some TLC. We kick started 2018 with a brand new interior and general refresh of the restaurant. Since the arrival of our head chef Adam Banks in 2017, the food and kitchen at Fifteen have evolved, so we wanted to revive the restaurant décor in line with the food and the surroundings to create a natural, calm atmosphere. The ambition for the refresh was to take inspiration from the ethos of the kitchen: working closely with trusted supplier and a considered whole food approach.
Restaurant Interior Refresh
Aside from the breath taking views of Watergate Bay, the open kitchen is at the heart of Fifteen Cornwall, where you can watch the busy chefs and apprentices working through each service and prepping the finest locally sourced ingredients for the next one. Sustainably sourced American White Ash frames the open kitchen replacing the unique mural created by artist Ben Allen in 2013.
We worked closely with local designer Libby Milla, from design and branding agency Felt, to drive the design forward to achieve our interior vision. She helped source the furniture from contemporary Danish furniture makers Andtradition, replacing the grey chairs and bar stools with hand crafted, solid oak chairs. Each piece of wood was shaped, treated and fixed by local company Rozen furniture.
A big part of the January refurb was the creation of our relaxed seating area, adding stylish sofas and low tables also from Antradition. This new relaxed bar area is the perfect place to drop in and watch the waves over a cup of coffee or relax and unwind with cocktails and antipasti. You can join us at the bar and sofa’s at any time from 8.30am – 9pm. The bar area is available on a first come first serve basis at lunch time but we take bookings for seats at the bar in the evening, where you can enjoy our ever changing à la carte and tasting menus.
