One of the questions my guests always ask me when they come on holiday to Cornwall and stay at Rooky's Nook is 'can you recommend some local pubs?' Here are a few local Cornish pubs: on the coast, up on the Moors, or in a local Cornish village:
St Kew Inn, St Kew (not to be confused with St Kew Highway!). This 15th Century Inn has always been a significant local venue, hostings auctions, political meetings, weddings, wakes and Cornish wrestling - said to have been held in the meadow which is now the car park! It now offers great food (booking recommended), in 2 separate dining areas plus the main bar and garden (weather permitting). - Great for a lazy lunch, or special evening meal - in a lovely setting, all year round, and one of my favourite local places to eat out! It has also been voted one of the top 50 pubs in the U.K. and received Michelin Bib Gourmet recognition.
The Old Inn and Restaurant, St Breward The Old Inn dates back to the 11th Century when it provided shelter for the monks who built the church next door. It is also 'The Highest Inn in Cornwall' (around 720 feet above sea level), set on the edge of Bodmin Moor between Camelford and Bodmin. With an extensive 'Specials Board' (which covers one complete wall) including 25 different dishes, separate Bar menu - including the legendary Mini and Maxi Moorland Grills (available lunch and evenings), plus the all day Sunday Carvery (with a selection of 4 freshly cooked meats) it's a real 'culinary treat'. The dog friendly bars, huge roaring fires and sloping beam ceilings ensure you enjoy a 'proper Cornish welcome". (Booking is recommended.)
The White Hart St Teath Located opposite the Clock Tower in the centre of St Teath, this is one of the closest local pubs to Rooky's Nook serving good 'pub grub', traditional ales (St Austell beers), with a friendly atmosphere. Great for a 'pie and a pint' when you can't be bothered to cook for yourself, or fancy a local pint. It is also dog friendly, and nearby (only a short drive away).
So if you are coming on holiday to Cornwall,
