Heligan Night Garden

At this time of the year, it is difficult to get excited about a night out. With the cost-of-living crisis looming over us all and world affairs which are sometimes too scary to contemplate.

If, like me, things have been a little overwhelming recently, then let me share a little secret.

I recently visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan for an evening of what can only be described as a little slice of heaven. The light displays for their current event, Heligan Night Garden are truly something to behold.

All about Autumn in Cornwall

As the countryside mellows into the colours of autumn, Cornwall takes on a golden glow and eases itself out of summer to pick up a much more sedate pace...

Pasties & picnics

The summer holidays are here, and 2022 brings its own challenges for us all.

A Floating Restaurant and so much more...

Here at Blue River Table we are getting ready to start our summer season and with Tethra (our boat) back in the water, all newly varnished, we are very much looking forward to it. Over the past couple of months we have been doing all the winter jobs aboard Tethra, painting, varnishing, servicing and this year even included fitting her with a shiny new engine!

The Great Cornish Larder

Everybody loves a Cornish pasty, but there's so much more good food and drink to be found in and around Cornwall.

We have fresh fish and meat, cheese, cakes and chocolate to tempt you. Great dollops of clotted cream to put on top of jam... 

Wonderful wines, beers and ciders, gins and rums...even vermouth!

Here's a list of Visit Cornwall suppliers...

 

Camel Valley, Award winning wines, need we say more?  SHOP

Our Seafood Coast

Here in Cornwall we are virtually surrounded by sea, full of wonderful fish, so there’s no excuse not to enjoy the fruits of the sea at some of our great restaurants.

Raise a Glass to the summer!

It's getting to that time of the year when we like nothing more than relaxing in the sun with a nice cold drink...

We have been virtually touring some of Cornwall's best producers of wine, beer, cider and spirits to see what's happening..
