We drove west turning south atI had reserved a Bed & Breakfast hotel which stated they were ‘2 minutes from the beach’ but I always take things like that with a pinch of salty sea water. Our hotel, Chellowdene, was right on a road leading to the beach and yes surprisingly, it was about a 2 minute walk! On the beach is a café called Glynvase Beach Café serving hot drinks, all major alcoholic drinks and a fresh and vibrant menu of food. Considering it was out of the main tourist season it was very busy – I’d hate to be hungry when the tourists are in town! As we were visiting out of main tourist season the beach was really empty with people walking their children and dogs and a few even swimming in the icy Atlantic waters!
stop-start hard rain with me thankful that at least I brought my wellies! The other side of Bodmin Moor the sky was
blue and stayed that way all weekend – definitely a gift from the gods! Bristol
The Argus, a Royal Navy auxillary ship was in harbour being fitted out to go toFalmouth is a foodie’s paradise with rows upon rows of eating places, small pop ins to grand dining, award winning fish and chips restaurants, loads of pubs and coffee houses along with foreign cuisine like Thai, Mexican, Chinese and South African (which I will definitely be trying next year) to name just a few.
West Africa and offer aid
to Ebola victims!
We look at the menu boards outside of restaurants before making up our minds and the menu from The Hut looked inviting but the doorway was a small entrance down a short flight of stairs. We went in to find that the whole restaurant opened out into a lovely, cosy and inviting place to eat. The waitresses were friendly and knew their menu making suggestions and recommendations. I ordered the Crab Fish Cakes, Plaice with Scallops and Prawns and the Meringue with fresh fruit for pudding.
Mr R ordered the Fish Cakes, Scallops with Catch of the Day (which was Plaice) and also picked the Meringue with fresh fruit. We each had a large glass of wine and left feeling full enough without being bloated ready for a stroll around before getting our taxi back to the B&B.
Most of the food that we ate came from the Oyster Festival which I will be writing about soon.
