    One doesn't have to be a veggie to enjoy a no meat pastry. I had several steak pasties when I was there in July and none were as good as the Pengenna c&o.

    Go to Wadebridge, hire bikes and cycle along the beautiful river Camel to Padstow along the Camel trail. Pop the bikes into the rack (lock provided by rental) and get fish and chips. Wander down to the beach, lovely views of the sea, then cycle back. Totally flat, as it would be alongside a river. Great day out.

    They’re not bad and I would happily eat one but used to be better. Philps are, IMHO #1. They are a tremendous pasty maker. A while ago it used to be Blewetts in Truro or Choaks in Falmouth. Rowe’s used to be decent but have sadly declined into the ranks of very mediocre mass offerings.

    My 9 yo daughter has chipped in with warrens (not convinced) and wife Cornish oven
    Being as I'm gf now and only buy off Truro market I will concede my normo pasty recommendations are 3 year old. Lol

    Warrens claim to be the oldest but are grim IMO. You get Ann’s from the Cornish food box on Lemon St Market? It’s a top choice in the absence of Philps.

    If you're on the Liazard or south-side of the Helford, Gear Farm Shop at St.Martin.

    There was a couple of land/seascapes on the wall in the Star, painted by one of the girl friends of a local Jack Tar. I did ask if any were for sale, not intending to buy, and none were for sale.

    Just been to Looe and polperro today. Looe feels a bit old but polperro is really nice. Don't park in the car park as it's a rip off. Go slightly out and park up the hill.

    Polperro-we were there for a couple of days last week. Trick is to find a B&B with a carpark owned by a man who cooks a top notch breakfast

    walked the Polperro to Looe footpath
