I recently went on a short break to Holywell Bay, near Newquay in Cornwall with some friends for the bank holiday weekend. When I’m at home, Sunday is a day for having family or friends over to enjoy a traditional Sunday roast. If I’m away for the weekend, it’s the one thing I really miss. However, when I’m away for a weekend within the UK, I don’t have to go far to find a cosy local pub to enjoy my Sunday lunch.
Best Sunday Roast in Cornwall
I had done some research before I left and found out that there was a nice local pub called The Treguth Inn, conveniently located a two minute walk from where we were staying. I pre-booked a table before we left so we were not disappointed.
My Sunday Roast
Sunday came around and we decided to skip breakfast that morning so we were not too full for lunch. We made our way to the pub just after midday. After some lovely weather on the Friday and Saturday, Sunday was very overcast with light showers, so it was very warming to arrive at this quaint little country pub for my Sunday lunch.
We all ordered a pint of local cider and had the choice of beef, lamb or gammon. We could also have a combination of any of the three choices. I opted for a mix of beef and lamb. The Treguth Inn has a reputation for having the best Sunday lunch in Cornwall. I have had quite a few Sunday roasts on my previous trips to Cornwall and I can’t remember any of them even coming close. The meat was cooked perfectly, the veg was perfectly al dente, beautiful Yorkshire puddings and delicious meaty gravy. The only slight gripe was that the roast potatoes were not crispy enough, but that is my own personal opinion.
The roast cost just £8.95pp, plus drinks, desserts and coffees, so it was very good value for money. I agree with the reputation, this is definitely the best roast I have had in Cornwall. If not one of the best I’ve had in any pub. The Treguth Inn comes very highly recommended.
