25 yrs ago, Fri night at the Bowgie at Crantock was the law. Billy Idol, The Cult, Bottled Tuborg Gold and genuine surf chicks. It was like going to heaven for us Fal boys. :-D

I agree even in the last 10 or 15 years the place has become majorly commercialised just for summer. Still I'm off to that neck of the woods in a couple of weeks for a family holiday, will probably pop there for a day with my brother so he can see how much its changed since we used to go years ago.

Totally agree!! Many a good evening spent in the pig sty after a good day surfing the bar behind Vugger Cove.
Not the same feel there now and you can't get scampi and chips for 3:50 either!!
