In a stunning Cornish Atlantic setting, just a mile from St Ives, Ugly Butterfly restaurant and bar has been designed with floor-to-ceiling glass walls to offer spectacular views across one of the worlds most beautiful coasts. We are biased.

Ugly Butterfly showcases chef Adam Handling’s passion for converting locally-sourced, quality ingredients into beautifully-presented dishes, packed full of flavour. The menu in the restaurant varies but may include dishes such as Rabbit, artichoke, marjoram and Turbot, mussels, lettuce. Offering an all-day dining experience, the Ugly Butterfly bar uses trims and offcuts from the ingredients used in the restaurant to create delicious drinks and bar snacks such as Cheddar doughnut and Chicken leg Caesar. This bar menu will illustrate that there is no such thing as food waste, much in the same way that there is no such thing as an Ugly Butterfly.

Membership benefits are also available at sister properties Frog by Adam Handling and The Loch & The Tyne.
