#TasteOfSennen

We are on the hunt for intrepid foodies of all ages, who have tried something new here at our restaurant this summer. As a reward we are offering two families lunch on the house! See prize details below…

As parents of young children, Ben and Kinga know that it can be difficult to persuade little people to try new things, even when you know they are missing out on something really tasty. Even as adults, we often decide that we don’t like something before we’ve really given it a shot.

So this summer we are on a mission to encourage our lovely guests to try something for the first time. Anything from your very first taste of Cornish crab, to a freshly shucked oyster, marinated olives, even a particularly smelly cheese or smoked fish for breakfast…

You never know – your new food experience might even join surfing, kite flying, or sand castle building as one of the funniest and most memorable moments of your holiday, especially if all the family take part!

How To Take Part

1. Take a look at the menu here at Ben Tunnciffe Sennen Cove and order something you haven’t tried before.

2. Simply ask someone to take a photo of you (or you could draw a picture) tucking into this new food experience. You’ll also need to tell us what it was like in a few words, and provide some details (your age and the date you visited us).

3. Post your picture and info to our Facebook page, Tweet us @BenAtSennen using the hashtag #TasteOfSennen, or email competition@benatsennen.co.uk to be in with a chance of winning… If you’ve drawn a picture you can leave it at the restaurant with your details.

4. The competition is open from 8th June – 31st July.

There are two categories – one for ages 5 – 13, and one for anyone over the age of 13.

Prize Details

The winning entries in both age groups will be chosen by our expert judge, chef Ben Tunnicliffe.

The winners will be notified on 14th August 2016.

Each prize includes a meal for four people, to be taken before 31st December 2016. The prize includes up to three courses and soft drinks, to a maximum value of £150. No cash alternative is available and the prize cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. Only one entry per person is allowed. If the selected winners are from the same family, the runner up from the +13 category will be awarded the other prize.

This competition is not being run in association with Facebook or any other social media platform, and is not being endorsed or sponsored in any way. We reserve the right to remove any unsuitable entries, or any posts not in the spirit of the competition.

Restaurant Service 2016

I cannot believe how quickly the time flies – half way through 2016 and our second summer season just weeks away!
There is still so much to do before the season properly kicks in; I will share exciting news of our plans next time.
As for now – we have spent a long time focusing on service for the 2016 season. I hope you can appreciate that customers have different expectations and it is not easy to meet all of them. Expectations are not only focused on our delicious food but (or especially) around the service and managing a lot of staff to the same standard brings its own challenges.
It’s unfortunate that the UK hospitality market is rarely taken seriously – more of a stop gap. A great deal of knowledge is required to do the job well and we aim to have the best staff in-house who come back to us year after year.
Anyway, Service for 2016. The solution? I hope we found one.
Inside our restaurant – we operate full table service – we guide you to your table, you relax and we’ll take it from there and take your order.
On our terrace – we have moved away from on table numbers for this year. instead we ask you to come and order inside at the till.  You will be given a number and you can change your seating as much as you wish as long as you have your number to take with you. We will deliver your drinks and food to the number you have displayed.
We have trialled this system for past three months and it works well for our customers.
In the height of the summer season you will be welcomed by our terrace host to ensure you get seated where and when you want.
Hope to see you soon!
Kinga
Restaurant Manager
