Craving a summertime idyll in the countryside where you can take your time over a long, lazy and relaxed supper? This 16th century corn mill, complete with working waterwheel, might be just the spot
The Old Mill Bistro manages to match its picture-book charm with a menu which appeals to adventurous diners as well as those who covet classic pleasures.
Arrive early to enjoy the splendid setting: sip a G&T in the garden next to the ancient creek before ensconcing yourself in the bijou family-run bistro.
Fine dining fans can tuck into imaginatively prepared fish courses crafted from the local catch, as well as delicious dishes fashioned from the cuts and crops of the surrounding Cornish countryside. Those who prefer bistro classics, however, will opt for crowd-pleasers like the 28-day dry-aged steak with chips.
Whatever you choose, you can be assured that absolutely everything (from the crusty tomato and thyme mini loaves to the utterly decadent chocolate brownie and petits fours) has been handcrafted in-house.
Blankets and a selection of hand-rolled cigars might tempt you to favour an alfresco finale to your supper – a coffee or digestif by the waterwheel on the heated terrace is a summer evening’s delight.
And anyone wishing to explore nearby Padstow should have this boutique hideaway in the pretty village of Little Petherick scribbled in their little black book. Located less than two miles from the busy harbourside, it offers comfy characterful rooms and a quiet haven from the holidaying hordes.
