Found 25th Jul 2008
I'm off down to Newquay on sunday morning but I'm driving down in my mini and it will be a very tight squeeze with 4 people and all camping equipment. What should I limit myself to apart from the obvious tent and sleeping bags??

Can anyone tell me what there is in Newquay, ie. Pubs so we could have pub lunch everyday rather than take masses of food and cooking paraphanialia.

Thanks guys

Eating out every day in Newquay will cost a fortune so just fill your boot with cash and you will be fine.

All Newquay pubs and businesses subscribe to that quaint cornish tradition of ripping off holiday makers (grockles) at every opportunity.

Great place to holiday though.

plenty of supermarkets to buy your food or you could always find a two for one pub :thumbsup: at india queens

plenty of chip shops there as well

Old mini? Or one of those BMW fakes?

I doubt they'd be able to fit 4 people plus luggage into a classic Mini

Been there, done that, spent 3 weeks in traction just to be able to stand upright afterwards :-D

TBH we cheated and had a roof rack as well. Grounding over speedbumps was only one of the many problems...

Not all , but most. Shop around and buy wisely and it should be no more expensive than anywhere else.
Pubs and take-aways etc will charge the market rate !!
You have to remember the majority of those sort of businesses have to generate 12 months income in 6 months and that is if the sun shines brightly.

Not quite such a cut and dry case of ripping off ;-)

One last tip :
WHEN LARKING AROUND WITH MATES DO NOT VAULT OVER ANY FENCES !!

Park outside a wetherspoons, then you'll be sorted :thumbsup:

Sounds like there might be an interesting story attached to that :giggle:

There are some very steep drops around the town and it's less than unusual for some unfortunate individual to be shouting "look at me" as they vault a fence to their death.:w00t::x

Helps to be forewarned especially if arriving late at night and rushing straight down for a few pints.
