I tried to pack in as many typical Cornish things as possible so we had Cornish Cream Tea, Cornish ice-cream, Cornish Pasties..so all in all it was a pretty indulgent weekend. We stayed in a place called Newquay for two nights but also got time to take a further road trip to St Ives. One of my favourite work friends is a lady called Debbie and she told me I HAD to go to St Ives as that makes a trip to Cornwall..she conveniently left out the bit about all the steep hills and narrow roads! Now, I wouldn’t say I’m an awful driver or anything but I’m definitely not the best and am very shy when it comes to using my hand break so it was a bit of a nightmare. I just couldn’t stop driving in case I would need to do a hill start and would just roll all the way back to Cambridge. The town of St Ives is really pretty though so I would definitely recommend going to see it..just maybe get someone else to drive.
The absolute highlight for me though was our trip to The Fish House down by Fistral Beach. All I can say is WOW! The fish was absolutely amazing there and I have to say, so was the service.
I’m on of these people who always tells the restaurant if it’s someone’s birthday or a celebration, I know I’m really embarrassing but I just think it’s nice and makes the evening more special. Anyway, I had emailed this restaurant about a week before to let them know we would be coming for a little birthday party for 2. Honestly, I can’t thank the staff enough. They put little happy birthday confetti on our table, the waitress whispered happy birthday to him when we sat down and his dessert had a little candle. Restaurants who care about what brings their customers through the door are far above the rest in my opinion. If you are in Newquay, you definitely should book a table here and experience great food and service in a beautiful setting.
It already seems like months since we were there but I’m just so happy to have been able to go while I live in England. It really is beautiful and I’ve said it before but nothing beats that ocean air.
