Pendarves Inn2 Cathebedron Road
This pleasant village local, a four-square granite building sitting at the village crossroads, calls itself a 'gastropub'. It has a single L-shaped room with a restaurant area at one end. A 300-year old former coaching stop, it was known for some years as the Caddy's Arms, but has recently reverted to its former name which celebrates a prominent 17th-century Cornish family of mine owners and politicians. The real ales always features Cornish beers, and a craft beer from St Austell is usually available. Traditional pub food from a good, realistic menu is offered daily and includes a traditional Sunday lunch at a very reasonable price; ingredients are fresh and from local sources where possible. There is live entertainment including karaoke at weekends. Outside drinking is confined to a couple of tables at the front of the pub, which also has a small car park behind. Daytime buses to Camborne & Helston call nearby.
