"Taste, health and value are the mantra at the Bean Inn, but they could add hugs to that list as these are some of the loveliest people you could wish to cook [for you]. Food is fresh as a daisy, local and organic where possible...."
Times Online 2009
"The Bean Inn in Cornwall thrives on the principles of taste, health and value. Ingredients are mostly local and organic. Standout starters include the puy lentil, stilton and walnut salad with a balsamic roasted beetroot dressing, as well as the mouth-watering fattoush. Mains include Moroccan spiced vegetable casserole pasta tortiglioni or blue cheese, white grape and red onion tart served with salad."
Top 10 UK Vegetarian B&Bs from the Guardian Travel Guide 2008:
5. Coast B&B, Carbis Bay, Cornwall, England
The St Ives area must have more vegetarian B&Bs per capita than anywhere else in Britain and Coast is the frontrunner. Its clean white frontage commands views of lovely Carbis Bay, just outside Britain's favourite seaside town. The B&B has its own thriving, funky and very reasonably priced vegetarian restaurant. "The Bean Inn" in which you could find yourself savouring an artichoke, mushroom and chestnut pie while admiring the towering palm trees in the front garden.
