Back to Chip Ahoy in Padstow

Chip Ahoy in Padstow is my most favourite of all the chippies in town. It helps that it is less than 50 yards from where we usually stay and also that it is right next to one of our favoured drinking holes the Padstow Tasting Room. I have written about this place before on the…

Buns of Fun at Barbican Bao

Today we were on the Barbican in Plymouth looking for a cup of tea from one of the vans around the harbourside when we chanced upon Barbican Bao and their little fluffy buns of fun I love a Bao bun and I love finding one when least expected. Unsurprisingly the menu is mostly Bao Buns,…

Noodle Soup at Jenny Koo’s Kitchen in Dartmouth

Breakfast at Bob’s East End Cafe in Tavistock

Bob’s East End Cafe is located inside the back of the Pannier Market in Tavistock, as the name may suggest this is proper old school greasy spoon and I was loving that we had found it. According to their Facebook page this place has been here for 23 years! described as a Traditional English Cafe…

Pizza at Pucellis in Padstow

Pucellis in Padstow is a great spot for a slice or two of pizza with a view. We got in early just as they opened and snagged a great table overlooking the harbour at the end of a decent autumnal sunny day. The window shutters were open and the late evening sunshine was providing enough…

Eating the Chef’s Pie at The Old Custom House in Padstow

The Old Custom House in Padstow is quite a grand looking building located right on the corner of South Quay alongside the Harbour. Their food is what I would call upmarket pub food, some may say Gastro Pub, basically its a bit fancier than a pub It is a much bigger place than you first…

Fish and Chips at the West Hoe Fryers in Plymouth

The West Hoe Fryers in Plymouth was a most inviting sight when we were caught out in a massive rain storm the other day. Drenched to the skin we approached the bright lights of the chippy more in hope than expectation that they would let us in. Despite the fact that we were dripping water…

A Taste of Thailand in Plymouth Market

A Taste of Thailand in Plymouth Market is a perhaps not a spot that you might imagine you might find yourself seeking out for a meal, yet hidden away in plain sight this market cafe is serving excellent classic Thai food to the good people of Plymouth and to passers by like ourselves who just…

Breakfast at Gloucester Services

Gloucester Services is famed for its fantastic Farm Shop and Deli and has become a bit of a destination stop on the M5 for tourists passing through and locals alike. I am not sure that a service station on the motorway should be somewhere that we are all heading off to for a special trip…

Breakfast at the Two Magpies Bakery in Norwich

The Two Magpies Bakery on Timber Hill in Norwich was a slightly more upscale spot to grab my breakfast in comparison to some of the less salubrious joints that I sometimes frequent. This place is one of seven other cafes located across Norfolk and Suffolk with others in Southwold, Aldeburgh, Darsham, Blakeney, Holt and Woodbridge…
