    Cornish Pasties

    by DUNK67 Written Aug 17, 2007

    If there is one thing Cornwall is famous for, it is Cornish Pasties and Newquay is no exception. There is no shortage of places to get them from supermarkets to traditional Pasty shops and they are located all over Newquay.
    You can buy all kinds of flavours from the Traditional to the unusual like the Full English Breakfast Pasty.
    No trip to Cornwall should be without sampling a Pasty.
