Even by Tassie’s formidable foodie standards, Stillwater Seven’s locavore cuisine stands out – the restaurant has won a myriad of awards over the decades. And now they have added steampunk-inspired rooms above the inn, with blackened timbers softened by forest green velvet and views of the Tamar River.

Lovers of a local story: everything you drink, touch and eat is crafted or created nearby. Grist is never far away in this former flour mill, so bring your appetite: freshly baked bread appears as if by magic, the honesty bar groans with small-batch gins and, oh yes, there’s that world-famous restaurant right downstairs.
