But if we turn off our trunk roads and motorways we can find places that can do much better than sub-standard or average chains and provide real treats to sustain us on our journeys. If heading down to South Devon or Cornwall on the A38, can I recommend the five minute diversion through Fore Street, Bovey Tracey? Its unassuming fish bar where ownership has recently been taken over by a couple from my old stomping ground in Essex and I reckon it gives Rick Stein's excellent takeaway in Padstow a run for its money at a fraction of the price. There's a simple menu include fishy favourites as well as salt and pepper squid. They come served with a posh touch - a tub of freshly prepared tartar source and a wedge of lemon.. And for those who prefer a meaty treat, look no further than the homemade pies, prepped in individual tin trays. That's got to be better than vacuum packed congealed egg!
