    Ship Inn in Pentewan Is OK usual bar meal type stuff

    If you can get to Mevagissey I recommend Fish&chips in the "Fountain Inn" in Cliff Street, fella's got his own boat so the fish is as fresh as Serves a good pint too


    The Indian Nosh just over the road as you come out from the Abbey at Tewks is Rubbish! heaps of gravy & Rice very little substance

    Carriageway widening on the A30 just east of Bodmin (Bodmin Moor) until spring 2017, be nice when it's done - dual carriageway all the way from the M5. Dry weekend forecast, been lovely today.

    When will you be in Pentewan? do you have a pitch number?

    We live just up the road, had a walk around P.sands tonight, quite a few front sea pitches free. ( I was really snooping around looking for the stolen van)!

    We think some have left early and travelling over night.

    Ship inn, nice food but pick your time, before 6 or after 8. Best in winter though:).

    Don't you just love/hate it when the satnav takes you off the M5 onto the A30 and says "keep straight on for 80 miles" :):(:sleep:

    dont use a sat nav . much better .
    anyway cant be doing with being told what to do.
    far better to have turned off earlier and followed the north coast roads much more interesting . m5 is for working vehicles .
