Al fresco

Outdoor cookery. The sights and sounds of the south and west served up alongside a platter of local delicacies, preferably hot off the barbecue. Fill those lungs with air, those legs with miles and that heart with fun - the food will taste triply good. Al fresco eating is the way to go.

The Surf Beach Bar, Sennen

For a welcoming drink, breakfast, lunch or dinner this is the place to be. It’s perfectly placed for a day on the beach, ideal if you are walking the Cornish coastal path (and you can bring your dog too) or conveniently placed if you arrive by car as the main car park is next door.

How to eat al fresco

There are probably only four rules for eating outdoors: 1) keep it simple; 2) prepare as much as you can in advance; 3) add a little twist to a classic, or make use of an unusual cooking technique and finally 4) tin foil is your best friend.
