From pubs with a view to cosy country pubs, there are plenty of friendly places in Cornwall to eat out or have a drink.

Many of our pubs have their own unique selling point, but can you rest assured that you will always receive a friendly service, be served with local produce and enjoy it all from an idyllic location.

If you want to find out more about the history of beer and cider in Cornwall, or simply want to taste some of the county’s finest, three of our local brewers offer brewery trips; Skinners Brewery in Truro, St Austell Brewery and Healys Cider Farm. Why not sample some local favourites, ‘Betty Stoggs’ or ‘Rattler’ while you’re at it?

There are also a large number of wine growers in Cornwall now – take a trip to Camel Valley, Trevibban or Polgoon...

There is a lot of choice out there but here are our local favourites:

The Kings Head

Top of the list is The Kings Head at Ruan Lanihorne, just a fifteen minute drive away. This is Country Pub with a warm welcome, great beers & simple food, locally sourced, with amazing local fish. Warm and cosy inside with a delightful garden in the summer.

The Plume of Feathers

Second favourite is The Plume of Feathers in Portscatho, a ten minute drive away. Taken over a couple of years ago by Roger and Helen they have turned this pub around, the food is lovely, the service is great and the beer is ansum!

The Victory

Also under new management is The Victory in St Mawes. The oldest and only traditional pub in St Mawes, The Victory Inn boasts fantastic views over the harbour and is popular with locals and visitors alike. They serve local ales and proper pub food.

There are plenty more – The Kings Arms in Tregony, The New Inn at Veryan, The Rising Sun in St Mawes with it’s fabulous terrace overlooking the harbour. These are just our “locals” if you are going further afield please do ask us for recommendations as there are not many places we have not been to at least once – all in the name of research of course!
