Daydreaming about getting out of the city? Check out our pick of places that are worth leaving the confines of the M25 for... 

Fed up queuing for your dinner on a Soho pavement or being crammed into the corner of an over-packed restaurant? This tiny café on a Cornish beach is the ultimate antidote.

Tucked away on a secluded stretch of the National Trust coastal path between Portscatho and St Mawes, the Hidden Hut (which released a cookery book earlier this year) is an open-air restaurant looking out across a wide, unbroken expanse of sea. A spot for homemade cake, seafood chowder or chunky Cornish pasties by day, it plays host to huge feast nights on sharing tables as the sun goes down. Themes include ‘Shells & Claws’, ‘Woodfired Mezze’ and ‘Summer Mackerel’.

Dress warmly, bring your own plate, cutlery and booze (and maybe a torch too) and then try to remember why you ever wanted to go out and eat in Zone 1 in the first place.
