Renowned Chef Danny Young Joins Port Gaverne: The Quintessential Beachside Pub with rooms on Cornwall’s north coast

Port Gaverne, a culinary gem nestled on Cornwall’s dramatic north coast, is delighted to announce the appointment of Danny Young as its esteemed new chef, coinciding with the venue’s recent re-invention. With over a decade of experience working in top-flight kitchens, including his previous role as Head Chef at the acclaimed Northcote Manor, Danny brings his exceptional talent and passion for gastronomy to this charming 17th-century pub.

Having embarked on his culinary journey at 16, Danny honed his skills and creativity during his impressive tenure at Northcote Manor from 2010 to 2022. His dedication and ingenuity were recognised in 2018 when he was crowned the Young National Chef of the Year, and he later achieved an Acorn award in 2021 (commonly known as the ’30 under 30′). With a remarkable track record, Danny has earned a well-deserved reputation for his culinary expertise and unwavering commitment to excellence

Port Gaverne is not your typical accommodation; instead, it’s a locally run beachside pub with rooms that embraces the true essence of coastal living. Situated in an idyllic location with gorgeous views over the peaceful cove below, the pub has recently undergone an extensive transformation both in its restaurant and bedrooms. The recent upgrades have breathed new life into Port Gaverne, and pairs traditional features, like a slate bar and wooden beams, with an authentic and welcoming atmosphere.

Adding to the culinary delights of Port Gaverne is Pilchards, a neighbouring café serving South Asian cuisine. At the helm is Head Chef Craig Small, who fused local Cornish produce with bold and playful global flavours. Expect a daily changing menu alongside Cornish craft beers, cocktails and proper wines. Pilchards offers the epitome of dining with a sea view.

Nestled along several coastal walking trails in the area, such as Barrett’s Zawn and Dannon Chapel, Port Gaverne is an idyllic destination for those seeking a blend of first-class food, natural beauty, and genuine hospitality.
