Arriving in nearby Helford we came across Down by the Riverside Cafe (yes that is it’s name) they serve a wonderfully delicious Cornish pasty made-to-order I am told (on good authority) that a real pasty does not contain carrots but it does boast skirt beef, swede, potato, and onion. Eaten direct from the oven it, doesn’t get better than this. The only downside to the experience is you have to order the pasty in advance. This makes it a little awkward if you plan to spend your day elsewhere.
Down by the Riverside does make some of the best Cornish pasties we have ever tasted.
