Cornish Cuisine 🍽

It’s all about waking up on a Saturday morning to a last minute adventure away 😍

As I’d never been to Cornwall before, this was the first place that popped into my head for a mini break, so my boyfriend and I packed our bags and made our way on the casual 5 hour journey down south.

Half way down the motorway and the pressure was suddenly on for where to find the best place to eat & sleep in Cornwall!!

Not only were we hungry, we were starting to worry about accommodation. So a little research and some strong suggestions from a couple of phone calls later, we came across a hotel located in the heart of a wonderful fisherman’s village in Portloe, named The Lugger Inn.


Upon arrival we walked downhill towards the entrance and were greeted by a lovely Scottish hostess and a super friendly guy who wore a patterned shirt with a curly moustache, I think he was French.

We were so impressed with the service, beautiful surroundings, the look and the feel of the place, that we were ‘won over’ and decided to stay for dinner.

The menu was a no-brainer – as we were on the coastline, Monkfish had to be ordered for starters.

And sticking to seafood, I went for a good old Bouillabaisse for my main course.

Oh, and a little crab πŸ¦€ right on the side…

As we were right on the sea side, I felt I should keep to fish traditions so the sea mussels were then ordered, which were soaked in garlic & white wine sauce.

No place for an alcoholic pudding other than this view below.

Once we finished our meal, we strolled down to the harbour where we were able to watch the boats and waves overlap with our “Flat White Espresso Martinis” – as a first-timer to this drink, I admit it left me highly satisfied. πŸ‘Œ
Driving out of the village the next day we stumbled across endless stunning scenery and fantastic pubs, such as the Kings Head – perfect stop to sample the local cider 🍺


And just in the next village, lies a Cake & Tea place called Melinsey Mill Cafe. A very cute venue to grab a scone and be on your way around the idyllic countryside. 

Padstow:

On the other side of Cornwall through our village to village adventures, we visitors the lies old-school village, Padstow.

I’d heard great things about the local Cornish pasties so just had to try out the traditional one at the Chough Bakery.


Admittedly with this scenery, any food will go down well…

And here’s a Cornwall Tip you need to keep forever: 

DO NOT EAT YOUR PASTIE WITH SEAGULLS  FLYING AROUND – THEY WILL EAT YOUR FOOD!!

A final brunch stop left us at a place on Watergate Bay – The Beach Hut.

Cornish sausage bap and scrambled eggs with avocado were quickly demolished, and quite simply delicious; also a luxury to be sat outside on the beach front in May β˜€οΈ

For all the sightseers out there, I have got to mention the breathtaking Bedruthen Steps; a real must-have and most special beach I have been to in a long time. The perfect end to the perfect weekend ☺️
