RHOSCOLYN BEACH

A Fabulous Meal And
A Walk With Madame X

The Enigmatic Madame X on Rhoscolyn Beach



Reflecting on the lovely couple of hours I passed at Rhoscolyn Beach brought to mind something Ann (not Madame X), once said after we had a meal in a faraway place,

”You eat like a horse.”
“Well,” I replied, “I was rather hungry.”
“No,” she said. “You eat like a horse.”

Bloody charming, what? And I paid for the ruddy meal.

THE WHITE EAGLE PUB


Anywhere in the world where bunnies are allowed to sunbathe and graze peacefully in pleasant rumination on gentle pastures is also Heaven for me.

I don’t know why. It just is. That’s one of the reasons I love Rhoscolyn.

Another specific reason why I love Rhoscolyn Beach is The White Eagle Pub.

I admit that I do have to save up, as it’s just un peu cher for this Council House lad. Yet, I aspire. Innit!

A couple of years ago the already highly regarded White Eagle was on the verge of closing.

Thankfully, it was handed a reprieve when, I believe, it was the Timpson Family (the shoe people) who decided that it was a gem of a quality pub in a quality part of Anglesey. Bless them.



The White Eagle Pub at Rhoscolyn Beach - Anglesey Hidden Gem



The White Eagle is today a fabulously well appointed pub, reassuringly classy, a comfortable ambience. It’s a bit expensive although with an excellent and satisfying menu and great beer.

This is not an advert, but an expression of genuine appreciation.


(Respectful Hint) It might be an idea to send a ruffian into the kitchen now and then to tear the chorizo from the Chef’s clenching hand. I don’t eat meat and love fish.

A Delightful Anglesey Beachside Haven




MOULE ET FRITES


The Moule Mariniere is a manifestation of pure delight. Plenty of crusty bread on the side to soak up the liquor and a spoon for when the bread runs out. Moule et Frites. Mmmmm....

Drinking from the dish is not in keeping with the manners of the rest of the clientele, but Dear Lord! It’s tempting.

Madame X was clearly unimpressed with my shell spooning, but it was certainly one of those, ”I’ll have whatever he’s having! moments.

The dish was seemingly endless. Were they breeding down there? ORDER IT!

The Old Lifeboat Station




BLESS THE CHESHIRE SET


Now on to another part of the pleasure I always experience at Rhoscolyn Beach or Borthwen in Welsh (The White Port).

This beach is one of those rugged beaches of Holy Island that offers a wonderful sandy beach day as well as sailing, fishing and diving. However, for me it’s the coastline that draws and satisfies me deep down.

My batteries are recharged and a trot to Silver Bay brings me around the southern headland to view the fabulous string of Golden Beaches of Rhosneigr and Llanddwyn Beach further down.

It’s quite obviously an area where the ‘Cheshire Set’ have set up their holiday homes.

I don’t have a problem with this because it’s their custom that allows us to enjoy such wonderful restaurants as the White Eagle here on Anglesey.

Of course, there’s always the Bulls Head Inne in Beaumaris that seems to me an almost transcendent manifestation.

Sea Mist In A State Of Indecision




MADAME X RELENTS


If the tide is in there’s always the raised path on the right that can take you north among the buildings and out into open cliff country.

I believe it was a while since Madam X had ventured here on such a beautiful day. My eating style seemed forgotten as we viewed the thick sea mist come and go in blessed indecision.

The coastline is rugged and a few of the small cottages clustered above the smaller beach would, in Madame X’s words, fit warmly into an Enid Blyton novel.

However, we were constrained by Father Time’s relentlessness and wanted to thoroughly enjoy the warm sunny day while we could.

Sea Mist Indecision Over - For Now



BOUNDLESS JOY AND TRAGEDY


Pleasant bunnies bounce about with bright abandon. So, if you do find an alleged salad patch you will also discover the graveest heartache.

The Anglesey Coastal Path gathers itself around a wonderful panorama of blue, as it does all around the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

You’ll discover a lovely circular walk up across open pasture to the now redundant Coastguard Station. Then, down the track behind to the road and back to the White Eagle.

May I gently encourage you to take a few minutes to visit St Gwenfaen’s Church and wander to the left far corner to pay your respects to the crew of the Ramon Cabrera Lifeboat Disaster.



There we are, your tour is over and Madame X and I have to leave you here to contemplate another wonderful aspect of Anglesey's stunning beauty.
