Lunch at The Hut Behind the Hedge

Rock has some great places to eat and The Hut Behind The Hedge is no exception – a great little lunch or snack stop!

In fact, the term ‘hidden gem’ is over used but this is one and not well known out of local circles. If you’re headed to Rock, support local and make sure you order a slice of cake.

Take a look at the bright blue cabin which is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area…

The Shore Restaurant, Penzance

The Shore Restaurant, Penzance

The Shore in Penzance is totally out of this world. Bruce Rennie is producing absolutely incredible food and I swear he’s well on his way to a Michelin Star.

He mans his kitchen every night alone, yes, you heard right he makes dishes for an entire restaurant of people alone! And, those dishes change depending on the local ingredients available locally every day.

He creates culinary masterpieces from the local catches and produce he sources from earlier in the day and has just a few hours to put a new menu together.

It’s unique, creative and some of the best food I’ve ever eaten – there’s a handful of meals that I will never forget and this is on it.

If you’re headed to Cornwall book a table at The Shore for an epic food experience…

Fresh produce from Padstow Kitchen Garden

Fresh produce from Padstow Kitchen Garden

Fruit and vegetables straight from the field to plate. There’s something so appealing about that. Zero fly miles, self-sufficiency and food that’s really, truly fresh.

I found out about Padstow Kitchen Garden through Instagram, one of its images appeared when I was scrolling – what a great discovery that turned out to be! It supplies lots of great Cornish restaurants like Rick Stein’s, Jamie Oliver’s 15 and Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 restaurant.

On my latest trip to Cornwall I found it the best place to pick up some interesting veggies for dinner.

Headed to Padstow and are going to cook some of your own meals? Then you need to visit this place to pick up a few bits!

Enter the cabin and take a look at the incredible produce I bought (and scoffed) on my trip…

Perfect Porridge at The Tubestation in Polzeath

Perfect Porridge at The Tubestation in Polzeath

Going out for breakfast is such a treat and when we were in Polzeath we found a fab spot to start our day right.

It’s always hard in a new place to know where to try as it’s always a bit of a gamble.

Thankfully we landed on our feet when we strolled into the Tubestation in Polzeath – it was a blinking marvellous find. And, as I later found out, it was voted Red Bull’s ‘number 1 best surf café’ in UK and Ireland.
