the Newquay Meadery

A medieval themed restaurant in Newquay, Cornwall. Me and the girls loved the opportunity to get all dressed up!

I thought I’d done a review of this place before, but I couldn’t find it in the list just now – my apologies if I have though!

Anyway, we’ve been here twice now, and I can see it becomming a regular visit every time we go down to Cornwall. My daughters and myself get dressed up in our beautiful gothic medeival dresses and we swish our way into the restaurant. (Husband comes too, but he doesn’t count as he doesn’t dress up!). The food here is absolutely delicious. More than delicious; I have honestly never tasted more gorgeous food. You cannot visit Newquay without eating here.

Last time we went myself and the kids had the meat platter to share – a mixture of boar, venison, lamb, a quarter chicken and steak. Shared between us there was plenty left over – it would easily feed four or five adults. Chris had the steak and said it was lovely.

This time Rain and Jude chose from the kid’s menu – which had the usual burger, or nuggets, but also scampi and a quarter chicken. They both had the chicken. As an extra we all had starter as well. I had a lovely prawn cocktail, Chris had melted cheese on garlic bread and Rain and Jude shared a breaded cod thing. For the main course this time I had venison steak and Chris had a burger. The only vegetable that you get is mushrooms, but each table gets a bowl of salad and a bowl of chips and potatoe wedges included. The kids had ice cream included in their meal; Chris also had large ice cream sundae, and I chose an apple and toffee pudding.

It was all absolutely gorgeous, and with 2 pints of beer, the whole bill came to £45. It’s not a cheap night out, but as resaurants go; and the amount of food with each portion; not to mention how bloody lovely it tasted; I think it was pretty good value for money.

So that’s the food. The place itself is totally done up as a medieval castle and looks great. The lighting is dim with romantic candles on the tables. You can choose smaoking or non-smoking. The service is fast and friendly – especially the second time when the Australian waitress was obviously after a good tip – and got one! The toilets were spotless, though I think it’s a shame that the previous “Wenches” sign on the door has been seen as not PC enough and has been changed to “Ladies”.

I think you’ve probably guessed by now that overall, I definitely recommend The Newquay Meadery!

Eating out, Food,

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself
May 24, 2018
This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
