So after a lovely breakfast at The Spotty Blue Teapot in Hoylake we started the 2 hourr drive to Rhoscolyn with a plan to stop on the way in Conwy on recommendation from Mum.

We then continued our journey to Rhoscolyn and the below is what we found on arrival. There will be more pictures on the next post, but we were both really really impressed! The house is the very last one down a narrow dirt track and is surrounded by grass, cliffs, the beach and sea - awesome!

After a couple of hours exploring, Frenchie Dog Eyes and Sam arrived, and it was great to see them both. We have been on weekends away with them a few times now, and we always have fun and there is never any drama!.....at 7.30pm I strapped on my head-torch and led the way as we all walked along the beach to the White Eagle pub which we had heard really good things about - over to Jo for the words here.
One of my favourite things is finding a brilliant pub/restaurant in the middle of nowhere. The White Eagle is in Rhoscolyn, which honestly looks like it has a maximum of 50 houses and is just down the road from Trearrdur Bay. During the week, it opens at 6pm and serves food until 9pm, along with a range of ales and vino.
Joe and Frenchie Dog Eyes got stuck into the ale, trying brews from Llandudno, Conwy and Chester while Sam and I stuck to the rose (in a bag!) The food on the menu is more restaurant than traditional pub, with a number of specials on offer.

|The ham hock scone - definitely a scone!!|
|Sam's coarse pork liver terrine, which came with gherkins which were amazing!|
|My prawn cocktail - a nostalgic moment|
|The Barnsley chop|
|Fish & chips|
|Pork belly cooked in soy with stir fried vegetables. My only slight critcism was that there was too much liquid, which was more like a broth than a sauce. It was still good though.|
