Chartsedge Amateur Restaurant Review 2016

Here is our second restaurant review of places we have meals when we are touring the West Country. Its not very scientific but hopefully gives you some good options. Click on Link below. Enjoy.

Lewinnick Lodge, Pentire, Newquay, TR7 1QD

Lewinnick Lodge PhotoI was taken out to breakfast at Lewinnick Lodge in Pentire Newquay a couple  of weeks ago by Montague South West a great holiday property  management company. Obviously Full English for me but the Eggs Benedict looked great as well and good value for money The view over the  Atlantic is truly stunning and you can watch he surfers on Fistral Beach doing their thing. Breakfast is served from 8am and unusually to 11.30am which is  very convenient after a long night or persuading teenagers to join you.

The Durant Arms, Ashprington, Totnes,TQ9 7UP

Durant ArmsThis is my local pub in an idyllic South Hams Devon village that has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years under the new owners, the Woollacott family. I am often found there after cycling from Totnes through the Sharpham Estate to have refreshing local Sanford cider. Great for Sunday lunch and watching village life from the front garden. It also and has a beer garden and welcomes dogs (even wet ones). All the food is sourced locally wherever possible and there is a great range of local beers. A proper welcoming local pub.

The Journeys End Inn, Ringmore, Devon

The Journeymans Inn RingmoreNestling in this sweet village close to the beaches at Challaborough and Bigbury on Sea is this 13th Century Local Inn. My colleagues Gail and Sue went there for lunch (without me!) and had Cheddar Cheese and tomato chutney sandwich (huge) and a Root vegetable and Ruby Chard soup. The pub prides itself from sourcing all its produce from a 30 mile radius and with lovely fresh locally baked doorstop bread. It is also a great place for dinner, has an idyllic beer garden and is children and dog friendly. Watch out for the Beer Festivals.

Rick Stein Fistral, Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall

Views-across-the-beach-from-Rick-Stein-Fistral-1024x682This opened last year and overlooks the amazing Fistral Beach and is only a few steps from the sand. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, family friendly and you can either eat inside or on the deck enjoying the sun and the sound of the breakers. The fish and chips looked absolutely fantastic but as that’s not my favourite, I chose from the Asian counter and had Indonesian Nasi Goreng……….it is amazing you must have it!!! You can also have takeaway fish and chips and curries for when you don’t want to cook. Very reasonable and great quality.
