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…

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…

La Bocca in Looe – Wood Fired Pizza

La Bocca in Looe is an Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria located down on Higher market street not that far from the beach front and quay side. We both fancied a little slice of pizza, perhaps a respite from all the pasties and plates of fish and chips so we took a chance to try them…

Pub Food at The Cornish Arms

The Cornish Arms by Rick Stein is located in St Merryn near to Padstow and is an old school gastro pub serving a simple classic pub menu. It is described as being a short drive away from the town and I suppose it is, yet as it is up all those windy narrow roads it…

Boscastle Farm Shop and Cafe: Checking out lunch and the deli

Boscastle Farm Shop & Cafe is located just outside Boscastle up the hill on the B3263 at Hillborough Farm. It is a really excellent Farm shop and the cafe attached to it serves some really great food. We have been here a few times over the last year when it was open, sometimes sitting outside…

The Golden Guinea in Looe

The Golden Guinea Restaurant is located on Fore Street on The Quay in East Looe. It is described as ‘a traditional family owned restaurant in the heart of Looe serving homemade meals’. The sign on the wall suggests that the building has been here since 1632 and once inside it had that oldy world feel….

Mary’s Pasty’s: Cornish Pasty Hunting

Today we were in Mevagissey on the hunt for another Cornish Pasty that we had not tried before from Mary’s Pasties. I had read that there was a shop on the West Quay so since we were here pottering about the village it seemed rude if we did not call in to try one Once…

Cornish Pasty Hunting: Malcolm Barnecutt in Wadebridge

A pasty from Malcolm Barnecutt in Wadebridge was an almost accidental addition to the Cornish Pasty Hunting Archives. We had just finished walking the section of the Camel Trail from Padstow to Wadebridge and we were waiting for the bus back to Padstow sitting just across the shop from the bakery. I had half ignored…
