Staying at The Sands Resort, we were spoiled with fabulous meals, however we did venture out a few times during our stay to try the local Cornwall restaurants.
Located adjacent to the beach, we went to the restaurant at The Mermaid Inn for a traditional Sunday Roast dinner. The Mermaid Inn is completely decked out in a nautical theme, including an enormous anchor in the front entrance.
The Sunday Carvery is extremely popular. After securing a table, Dan went to the bar to pay for our meal. We were given a laminated card that was our meal pass for one trip to the carvery buffet, where we loaded up our plates with roast beef, veggies, potatoes and Yorkshire Puddings, all smothered in gravy. Delicious.
Here are some pretty pictures of the beach that was right next to The Mermaid Inn.
Not that I live in a beach community, but Cornwall was the one place in England that really reminded me of home. Specifically, there is a part of town that is a surfers beach, which reminded me of Laguna or Malibu. Other than the colder climate, it had a very California vibe. We had pizza at The Phoenix Cafe and sat on the patio with views of the ocean.
The beach sunset was spectacular!
