A new chef is at the helm of the Nutty Duck, the popular seaside restaurant in Mevagissey.

Originally from Surrey but resident in Cornwall for the past 20 years, Nigel Bacon joins the team with a wealth of experience. Inspired by his family’s love of food, he graduated from catering college at 17 and has been developing creative dishes ever since.

“We’re delighted to have Nigel with us,” said Nutty Duck owner John Gladwin. “His approach perfectly matches our ethos and atmosphere – welcoming and laid back, but focussed on quality of experience. He’s updated our menu and created some wonderful dishes which we’re excited to be serving to both our local residents and visitors.”

Bacon, who has worked as a senior sous chef within AA Rosette Award-winning hotels, added: “The Nutty Duck is known for elegant, refined dishes which prioritise the amazing local produce available here – a tradition I’m proud to be continuing.”

The Nutty Duck has reopened with a set-up adapted for social distancing, including a south-facing terrace option for outdoor sea-view dining.
