A summer of visiting vendors


The St Moritz Hotel has come up with an innovative solution to address the challenge of staff shortages currently affecting the hospitality industry.

From July 18 through to August 30, the hotel will close its Shorecrest Restaurant on Sundays and Mondays to enable much-needed rest and recuperation for its chefs and front of house staff.

In the restaurant’s place, the St Moritz will be hosting six independent local food trucks, providing guests the opportunity to experience more of the wonderful foodie delights that Cornwall has to offer.

It is the idea of director of restaurants, Jonathan Dome, who said: “The aftermath of Covid has had nationwide, crippling repercussions on the hospitality industry, with staff shortages that have never been encountered before.

“Only by prioritising the wellbeing of our team can we continue to uphold the expected standards at St Moritz Hotel and maintain the ‘experience’ that our guests love and enjoy.”

The food trucks will be situated in the Seaside Café gravel park from 3pm -8.30pm and will work purely on a takeaway basis. They will welcome residents and non-residents alike.
