Royal StandardSt Peter's Hill
Wood furnishings and fittings are prominent in this his compact one-bar local which has been in recent years updated in a contemporary manner. The two original bar rooms are now combined into an L-shaped bar, drinking and dining room; the wooden bar top and front are complemented by wooden chairs, tables and settles, some of which have obvious church origins. The pub still retains some original features such as the old brick fireplace and wood-planked floor in the original public bar at the front, and the slate-flagged former lounge to the side. The surprisingly large rear garden has been opened up as an outside drinking area (although dogs not permitted). This is a proper locals' pub where conversation generally rules, while the food menu is available 1200-1400 and 1800-2100 daily; curry night Wednesdays. There are fine views of the Penryn river from the front patio; families with children are welcome. Parking is difficult - drivers should beware of occasional swans on the road nearby! The pub is also accessible from Falmouth by foot ferry across the river, or by a daytime bus service between Falmouth and Truro.
