March 08th, 2016

When visiting this great county you have not had the proper Cornish experience until you have enjoyed a delicious local cider or ale in one of our fantastic pubs. Whether that’s sitting in one of the glorious beer gardens and taking in the Cornish views or nestled in to one of the old inn’s trading stories with a local, there truly is a pub for everyone, with literally hundreds scattered around Cornwall.

Below you will find some of our favourites that you should visit when on your holiday in Cornwall.


The Pedn Olva, St Ives

The name of this pub is actually Cornish for ‘lookout on the headland’, with the pub truly living up to its name by sitting 30 feet above the Atlantic Ocean perched on the famous black and blue granite cliffs that the county is known for. Enjoy a cold drink on the sun deck and keep your eyes open for a host of aquatic life such as seals and dolphins frolicking in the waters. Make the most of the open fire before the weather starts to warm up!


Pandora Inn, Mylor

This picturesque thatched 13th century inn is nestled on the banks of the Restronguet Creek. The pub is named after the ship that that was sent to capture mutineers from the HMS Bounty and the nautical theme runs through this pub with even a pontoon to tie up your boat if you travel along the river. If you love delicious fresh sea food then this is the place for you.


The Old Coastguard, Mousehole

This pub offers fantastic views of St Michaels Mount, whilst beautiful gardens run down to the beautiful ocean making it the perfect place to grab a drink and lounge on the grass. Work up an appetite on the golden sands before heading back to the pub to enjoy award winning cuisine that focuses on fresh local ingredients.


Watering Hole, Perranporth

Cornish pubs are known for offering up some incredible views of the coastline, but this pub takes it one step further by being situated right on the sand at Perranporth. This glass fronted pub offers unbeatable views of the bay whilst serving up a large variety of refreshing drinks and scrumptious food. Make a day of it by surfing the Atlantic waves, playing beach games or just sun bathing before heading here in the evening to top up the energy supplies!


Cafe Mylor, Falmouth

This fantastic pub is for everyone, including the dog as they too are looked after with fresh water and dog biscuits. A great spot to start the day with delicious breakfasts and hot coffee being served all year round. For a healthy and energy packed morning why not try a delicious smoothie before taking a walk around the lively marina, or simply sit with a local Cornish ale and watch the yachts go by!
