Saturday 22 September at 3pm

We are delighted to welcome back Damian Le Bas on to read from and sign copies of his new book The Stopping Places. In this powerful and soulful debut, Damian sets out on a journey to discover the atchin tans, or stopping places – the old encampment sites known only to Travellers – in a bid to better understand his Gypsy heritage, the history of the Britain’s Romanies and the rhythms of their life today.

This is a free event, but with limited spaces please reserve here.


The menu for Thursday 13th, Friday 14th and Saturday 15th September is inspired by the tastes of Provence:

A sumptuous tarte paysanne, a classic roast tomato tart with crème fraîche, French grain mustard and fresh thyme
Provençal lemon-baked ricotta omelette with fresh tarragon and chives
Zing-fresh haricots blancs en salade, a white bean and tomato salad (vegan)
Antibes quinoa salad with roasted red peppers and olives (vegan)
Poischichade, a Provençal chickpea & sun-dried tomato dip (vegan)

Book now (call Robert on 07766656030) to secure a table either in our light and airy gallery or – if the sun shines! – in our beautiful courtyard set within the utterly sublime St Anthony’s Hall garden.

Available to eat in or take out between 12.30pm and 2pm, or until it’s gone.

KATE WALTERS (11 Oct – 26 Jan 2019)

We are delighted to welcome back Penzance-based artist Kate Walters for her exhibition The Start that Falls from Heaven, which presents an intimate collection of recent works made in Orkney and Iona. The exhibition overflows with motifs of the feminine, the mythical and the natural world and asks: What does it mean to be human, knowing, and living in the anthropocene age?

We still have a few spaces on our decadent Christmas Supper Club on Friday December 14th. Please note tickets for this will cost £40 for a Champagne cocktail followed by three courses of epicurean delight.

Get in touch to book your private or business Christmas cocktail party in November and December. Meanwhile, we are also curating a series of private suppers at the gallery for between 10-12 guests. These are wonderfully intimate events with exclusive use of the gallery and our pretty courtyard garden. Menus start at £25 per person.

Thank you both for hosting us so generously last night. The flavours, aromas and textures were sublime – I could have eaten that garlicky labneh forever! The gallery looked beautiful and it made for a very special night for our three departing colleagues”  – Chloe Smee, Senior Programme Manager, Soil Association Food for Life

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
