Trip report: nice meals in Cornwall and Gloucerstershire

Just got back from a week in the UK and we had some very nice meals. Standouts includes Sam's on the Beach in Cornwall: There are two locations and this is the second one, overlooking the beach in the Par/St. Austell area.

We also enjoyed the Trouble House outside of Tetbury: We spent a week going from Cornwell to Bromyard (Folk Music Festival), in and around Wales (Wye Valley area) and ending up in Cirencester.

I don't see much outside of London on this board. Any comments about these areas?

  1. I live in Gloucestershire and have been thinking about going to the Trouble House.

    Can you elaborate on what you had there and what you liked about it? Anything stand out?

      We had lunch there. We were pleasantly surprised right away with bread and Channel Islands butter. My husband had the venison with some nicely crusty potato side and vegetables (sorry, I forget which ones) which he really enjoyed. I had a sardine appetizer on toast with perfectly ripe roasted tomatoes, then the pork shoulder with mashed potatoes and onions. Sorry if I have a hard time remembered the other vegetables, but everything was good. Wish we had room for desert.

    2. The Trouble House is under new management since I lived in Tetbury but I hope the ghosts are still there...
