We went here twice and really enjoyed both visits. I had a traditional which was super tasty and my wife had the lamb and mint. I would have given 5 starts but my wifes pasty was on the cold side! Worth a visit if you're in Padstow!

A nice choice of bread and cakes but by far the best pasties in town. Lots of meat in the pasties and nice pastry.

Whilst strolling around Padstow in the afternoon sun we realised that hunger had beset us. We were fortunate to come across Choughs and indulge in their excellent pasties, my wife had a cheese pasty which she said was one of best she has ever had. I had a medium steak and I had to agree.

Have yet to try the scones (pronounced SCONES and not SCONS!) but the strawberry conserve, Cornish butter, saffron cake and clotted cream await. Would not hesitate to recommend and if your... More

By far the best pastys you can get in Cornwall and have been all over the place many times, live in Taunton in Somerset about 2 hours away and can safely say would go down to The Choughs just for their pastys.

Lovely cakes and pasties. Can't knock it. Go every year we're there. Lovely helpful staff. Gets busy in the summer but still fairly busy in the winter months when we're there. Before now I've had to order a load of pasties to take back for my dad and sister.
