Make mine a cod and chips please!
Across North Cornwall converted bright blue container cafes are popping up keeping beach goers fed and watered to make the most of their days out.
Beach Box Cafe is a local independent providing great coffee, smoothies, snacks and a whole lot of healthy stuff. The closest one to where we were staying was on the beach in Polzeath.
If you’re out and about and need a snack or a drink, Beach Box is the place to head to keep the wolf from the door.

📌 Pin this one for later.
Society Cafe, this is an absolutely cracking independent cafe right in the heart of the city. It’s right on the corner of Farrs Lane, opposite the canal where you walk on real cobble streets – it is beautiful, the food is great, and I just totally love it.
There’s nothing like having dinner watching a storm from the inside of a cosy beach side restaurant.
When we said we’re going to Jersey, everyone who had been said to head up Five Mile Road towards St. Ouen’s Bay to visit El Tico.
It’s right on the beach and the restaurant is a great all rounder and popular choice with locals and tourists.
Jersey’s restaurant scene is thriving and a heavy weight punching well above its size is Locke’s Coffee and Grub.
This glass fronted ex-record shop is now an awesome restaurant with a friendly team, incredible coffee and awesome food.
A trip to Jersey isn’t complete if you’ve not visited, and it easily shot to the top of my favourite restaurants on the island.
Jersey is blessed to have a thriving foodie scene and Nude Food stands out as the top healthy, clean eating choice on the island.
I totally fell in love with the healthy food, the gorgeous cafes and seriously good coffee, it quickly became my go to place throughout the whole of the trip.
There’s branches called Nude Town in St. Helier and Nude Beach in St Aubin (I know, I giggled too, good to know someone has a sense of humour!).
If you’re in Jersey this is a great cafe that needs to be on your radar.
If you want seafood straight from the sea or vegetables straight from the field to your plate, then you need to head to Faulkner Fisheries in Jersey.
Portsmouth is a treasure trove of great breakfast and brunch spots. I feel really spoilt to have all these awesome independents on my doorstep.
Southsea Coffee is no exception and a stellar cornerstone of the local food scene, it’s been thriving since 2013!
Plus it’s within walking distance of Southsea Common and the sea front. There’s nothing like a brisk stroll along the shore followed by food and coffee. That’s how you win at weekends!
Find out why this is one of my favourite places to go…
ad* Nestled in the leafy Hampshire village of Otterbourne is the beautiful country pub and restaurant The Old Forge.
It’s recently just opened after undergoing a major transformation and I fell in love with the dreamy velvet, rich tones and metallic finishing touches.
This in addition to the open fireplaces, exposed brickwork and low beamed ceilings make it the perfect winter hideaway!
The mix of traditional English pub and luxury interior is a winning combination and I am so into its cosy vibes. With the festive season kicking in, it’s good to have a few places like up your sleeve when you’re looking for places to visit with friends and family.
I was invited to take a look around and try the new menu, take a look…
Winchester has some incredible breakfast spots, you’ve just got to know where to look.
Tucked down a lane, just off the high street is a wonderful place to fuel up for your day.
