The Blue Tomato, Rock

When we first started to visit Cornwall over ten years ago, frankly, the accommodation and restaurants left a lot to be desired. The exception to this rule was either the couple of Michelin starred restaurants or the odd independent super beach cafe like The Blue Tomato at Rock. So it is that every year we take a couple of trips as it is still going and still superb. We do breakfast once and lunch once. This year for our breakfast visit we both had a fresh berry granola with yoghurt and honey which was fantastic.

This was followed by the full Cornish for me and portobello mushrooms with walnut and blue cheese sauce on granary for D. Ranks as probably the best breakfast one can have but the view makes certain it is the best!

Another day and the sun was shining across the estuary with views over to Padstow we couldn’t think of a better place to walk the dog and have lunch than Rock.
This time for lunch I had an unusual dish; crab rarebit with mixed salad, some would just go for crab and others just rarebit but I can honestly say that crab rarebit is the way forward! D had battered king prawns with a chilli dip and mixed salad, I pinched a couple and agreed they were perfect, crispy batter soft juicy hot prawns inside.
