Bath Inn32 Cornwall Terrace
Up a lane off the promenade, this spacious pub is the last relic of the seafront public bathhouse, demolished in 1860. Given its small, unassuming frontage, it has a surprisingly roomy interior with the original three separate rooms largely opened out, retaining a separate bar in what is now a large function room to the rear. Tastefully modernised internally, it has mostly carpeted floors with small planked area in front of the bar, a mix of wood panelling all down one side, wallpapered walls elsewhere, and varnished ceiling beams. Décor includes pictures of old Penzance. There is also a large and pleasant suntrap of a terraced beer garden. Food is available 12:00-14:00 (except on Sundays); the guest beer will be from a Cornish brewery or micro; beer samples are happily provided on request. Dogs and families welcome until 21:00, or later in the garden.
