#Crinnis - Press Release 2 - Mark Apsey June 08 2015
@OstracaCornwall #CRINNIS - Opens Tuesday 16th June 2015
Following in the sandy footsteps of Sam’s @ The Bay, a second pop up venue that has been
constructed from a recycled 20ft shipping container has landed at Carlyon Beach for a series
of temporary events and pop up gatherings during the summer of 2015.
‘Ostraca’ is a pop up restaurant & bar serving fresh Cornish produce direct from fishermen and
farmers to bakers and coffee makers, it has also been titled the “1st Camel Valley Wine Bar”
says (Chris) Ranger - Director of Fal Oyster Ltd., designer and proprietor of the unique pop up.
“We have known the Lindo family for many years and it’s a real honour to see the family sitting
on our decking when we have popped up in Falmouth, Truro and now St. Austell”
“Having spent the past 8 years supplying Fal Oysters to many top chefs we are also very
pleased to announce our 1st guest chef on the beach is the incredibly talented Mark Apsey”
says Ranger “[fresh out of The Idle Rocks in St Mawes] we couldn’t have a better opportunity
to impress our guests, I can cook, but Mark is a master!”
“The booking system is also another 1st for Cornwall. Due to the limited capacity at the chefs
table of 8 guests (in all weathers) we need to know you are definitely coming so we can get the
freshest produce just for you.”
Instead of phoning and leaving just a name and number Ostraca ask you to purchase a
voucher online (Ostraca.co.uk), which you then use against the menu at your reserved time.
Currently the vouchers are just £20 for lunches and £40 for evenings. This will get you a glass
of wine, a starter and a main, however if you are after an eight-course taster menu you can just
pay any balance by cash or card at the end like any other restaurant.
In lovely Cornish sunshine the staff can seat a further 24 on the decking and 60 at the banquet
tables where they will host the ‘Pop Up Gatherings #Crinnis Feasts’ and you bring your own
alcohol. The mini restaurant & bar can cater for more bookings and more visitors to the beach
when other local pop ups join in for summer activities. So keep an eye on the website and
social networking for more dates and availability as the weather improves.
