Love The Pub Grub

I love going out to eat and living in North Devon there are loads of wonderful country pubs, this time my friend Emma and I chose a pub called Thatch in village called Croyde - a gorgeous costal village. We went all had and had starter, mains and puddings! 

Here is what we had:

Deep fried brie with a salsa dip and creamy garlic mushrooms with bread and butter.

For mains beef lasagna and pheasant pie

Such generous portion sizes! After having a bit of a rest and digesting the first two courses, we somehow found room for pudding! Chocolate fudge brownie and baked cheesecake. Both with Devonshire clotted cream.

This whole meal came to £30.59 for both of us! Seriously good value! The main meals with 2 for £12 and the puddings were 2 for £6 which helped the budget. The atmosphere in the pub is amazing, such a chilled, relaxed vibe. Lots of surfers pop by for a swift pint. I love the thatched roof and county style decor with wooded beams on the ceiling.

What are your fav places to eat near you? I love chains such as Prezzo and Pizza Express, Ask and so on but most of all I love the local, independent pubs and cafes, they all have their own style and quirkiness. 


  1. Wow, you are really making me miss British food...

  2. Oh! looks super good :) Makes me hungry looking at that brownie!! lol :)


    1. I have such a sweet tooth I love chocolate cakes/brownies anything! x

  3. Ooh, that's really close to where my husband and I are moving to in a couple of weeks! I think I'll definitely have to pop in some time, maybe just for that brownie!

    There's a cute little cafe in Bideford that do amazing scones. It's called Velvet and Vanilla.. or something to that effect, can't quite remember!

    1. ahhh Kat, can't believe there is someone coming down here! yes, there is a cafe in Bideford called Velvet and Vanilla, it is quite new, my friend went there and they do really good cakes, I must try it out sometime. give me a shout if you ever need anything!
