The Hub, St Ives

When you walk in flip flops down the hill into St Ives on a hot day it's hard to believe you're not abroad. One of the memories I will always keep from Cornwall is that first breathtaking day I saw Carbis Bay.

In St Ives there's always somewhere or something to eat. Whether it's fish and chips or and ice cream on the front or a four course meal. Apparently The hub has completely redone its menu after a big refurbishment.

According to Hub owner Richard Boon you won’t find anything fussy on the new Hub menu – it’s about simple and uncomplicated food using the best seasonal ingredients available with an emphasis on great taste.

During the day, the Hub has also introduced a range of freshly based cakes, brownies, cookies and pastries to complement the coffee, made from the Hub’s team of fully trained Baristas.

Frankly, I struggle to get the other half anywhere that doesn't sell enormous burgers and it looks like The Hub won't disappoint him. The team have spent month researching recipes for the burgers and have a range of options including Classic, Cornish Cheese, Blue Cheese, Spanish, Italian and Barbecue.

But for me it was the promise of homemade scotch eggs that caught my eye. Roll on sunshine...I'm coming to St Ives....

  1. Wow! Looks great! Shows you the power of good photography - the burgers look incredible. Will have to pay a visit over the summer.

  2. My Mom has been to St Ives (and said it was lovely) but unforunately I have only seen it via the TV (I live in Australia). Those burgers look great! I like their presentation.

    Anyway, I like your blog. I'm your latest follower!

  3. Thanks Sam! Those burgers do look good! Welcome Les rêves d'une boulangère welcome to Clotted Cream Diaries! I'm glad to have you! x
