As the days shorten and the temperature drops, nothing beats a weekend coastal walk followed by a warming Sunday roast dinner. Luckily there are several places in the local area which serve up great roasts, so here’s a round-up of where to get the best local roast by the coast!
Bear Bar and Kitchen, St Agnes
Down at the bottom of Town Hill in St Agnes, the Bear Bar and Kitchen is a modern pub with a great cocktail list, craft beer and lovely friendly service. It serves tasty gourmet burgers, ‘posh kebabs’, and of course a delicious seasonal roast on a Sunday (pictured above, yum!).
Bolingey Inn, Bolingey (nr Perranporth)
Another wonderfully traditional Cornish Inn, the 17th Century Bolingey Inn is situated in the picturesque hamlet of the same name, one mile from Perranporth. Serving a hearty homecooked menu, cooked to order, the Sunday roasts come highly recommended.
