It is primarily furnished with sewing machine tables and a few church pews; pictures adorn the walls. Two fireplaces have a solid fuel stove, a third is fake. Outside seating is on the lawn. The pub has no noisy machines, although there may be low-level background music playing. The Plough is famed for its distinctive menu, on which fresh locally-caught fish features prominently.

      A large, family-friendly pub with a large restaurant, set beside the popular Camel Trail, welcoming cyclists, walkers and dogs. Inside, the immediate bar area is fairly narrow, but the pub is fairly extensive with several separate drinking areas and snugs, divided by a dining area and carvery in the centre. Stone walls are surmounted by beamed ceilings with wooden supports; the floor is carpeted. Local photos, mainly of the pub, adorn the walls. Meals include a carvery every lunchtime and evening and all day Sunday. The bus service past the pub connects with Padstow and Wadebridge and the main line railway at Bodmin Parkway.

  • Edmonton
    • Quarryman Inn Edmonton PL27 7JA Telephone(01208) 816444

      Conversation and banter thrive in this comfortable pub set in an old school house and quarrymen's housing complex, now part of a holiday and sports venue. A separate games area forms an annex to the bar, which features a regularly-varied beer menu of up to 4 brews (3 in winter). There are generally one or two from each of the Padstow and Otter breweries' ranges (which vary), and the fourth guest beer is usually from another microbrewery. The inn, which also has a lounge bar and dining area, and whose décor emphasises sporting and field pursuits as well as local art, is known for its good quality food. Families with children and (in the bar only) dogs are all welcome - but mobile phones are most definitely not! The pub is not far from the Camel Trail and is handy for the Royal Cornwall showground, while the buses pass within a level 800m walk on the A39; finding the pub is well worth the effort.

    • Arwenack Club 14 Arwenack Street Falmouth TR11 3JA Telephone(01326) 311078

      Formerly the Royal British Legion Club, this venue is now renamed and welcoming non-members. Situated in the centre of town in a formidable-looking granite and stone building, the entrance to the right is through a wooden door and along a corridor leading to a large spacious open0-plan bar area with the bar to the right-hand side serving two real ales. A very large TV showing mostly sporting events is adjacent to the bar, and almost opposite that are the pool table and dartboard. Carpeted and tastefully furnished throughout with a variety of wooden chairs and tables, and some comfy seating as well. The far end of the room has an excellent panoramic vista through the large windows, with all of Falmouth's seafaring tradition on display. The outside patio and seating is approached through a door to the right offering these same superb views of the harbour, River Fal, Carrick Roads and the world-renowned docks with its boats, ships and visiting cruise liners and warships.

    • Beerwolf Books 3-4 Bells Court Falmouth TR11 3AZ Telephone(01326) 618474

      Newly opened in December 2012, it can be hard to decide whether this is a pub with books or a bookshop with beer - think Waterstone's but with beer instead of coffee! Off the main shopping street up a side-alley, it is entered up a flight of stairs to a former maritime store loft with rafters. Previously occupied by Falmouth Working Men's Club, this clean and spacious wooden-floored curiosity is divided into two distinct areas. One half is occupied by a bar with its 7 handpulls offering (frequently) a Penzance brew and up to five guests from microbreweries nationwide, plus 4 other handpulls on a separate unit dispensing varying ciders, and often the locally famous Grandma's Weapons Grade Ginger Beer. Further through, the other half is the books section where shelves are neatly stacked with many second-hand or remaindered books, classified by subject bookshop-style, and all in excellent condition and realistically priced. Basic tables and chairs are scattered throughout, so you can sit and drink beer, browse through books - or both! Posters and old photographs decorate the walls. On balance though, you will probably conclude this is mainly a pub, as you are welcome to go in and drink the beer whether the books are an attraction or not. No food, but you may bring your own.

    • Boathouse Trevethan Hill Falmouth TR11 2AG Telephone(01326) 315425

      Large family-orientated pub on two levels, up a short but steep hill on the edge of the town centre. The interior is decorated like a wooden boat, with a decked balcony affording outdoor drinking and impressive river views. The lower level consists of a cosy family room inside the front door; most of the action takes place upstairs where a single bar faces a long wood-floored room of unusual shape, but with distinct drinking/dining areas adjoining. The four beers vary but at least two are normally Cornish and a local area brewery is usually represented on one of the handpumps. The cider is also frequently varied and may be something unusual for the area. Food is available daily; well-behaved children are welcome with parents but must be off the premises by 20:30.

    • Finn M'Couls Killigrew Street Falmouth TR11 3PG Telephone(01326) 318653

      Entered up a few steps from street level, this former Devenish Brewery hotel was transformed into an Irish theme bar a number of years ago. Nowadays, apart from the walls being festooned with Ireland-related pictures and posters, and despite its name, it is to the casual eye a normal, rather basic town centre drinkers' pub. Dark varnished wood is the dominant material in the spacious single bar room, whose floor is still covered in much of the original, well-worn planking. Large windows with seating areas overlook the junction of two busy shopping streets; the corner window space is a distinctly separate drinking space where small groups tend to congregate. Upstairs is a separate room in similar style, for drinking and entertainment - a table football, large-screen TV and live music on some evenings are hosted here.

    • Five Degrees West Grove Place Falmouth TR11 4AU Telephone(01326) 311288

      This spacious and airy bistro bar/pub near the Maritime Museum is divided between two levels, the more food-orientated section being up a few steps from pavement level, and a late-night bar, whose entrance is outside, tucked away in the basement. The upstairs room facing the front door offers views across the harbour. The bar here sits beside a food servery, whilst the wooden parquet floor extends via a raised area through to the back of the building where there is a large outside patio for open-air drinking. A simple pagoda structure shelters smokers. Background 'musak' is for the most part unobtrusive, although there is one eye cast towards the town's burgeoning student population, and occasional live entertainment is also a feature. The beer range varies a little and may feature brews from other Cornish breweries. Three ever-changing ciders are kept in boxes at the back of the bar. The food menu is imaginative and reasonably priced, and ranges from nibbles through snacks to full main courses; vegans are well catered for. Downstairs ('Five Degrees Below'), the bar opens at 21:00, sometimes earlier, for late-night drinking and entertainment, and the atmosphere is more that of a small club; it is generally for the later drinking hours. A St Piran's beer festival is held in early March.

      Opened in March 2003 on the site of an old indoor market, this is an individualistic Wetherspoons designed from scratch rather than using pre-existing premises. The inside is vaguely reminiscent of the interior of an ocean liner, with curving staircase up to the upper deck, where there is a second bar and a bay window like a ship's bridge overlooking the bustle of The Moor. Signage is in both Cornish and English. The standard JDW selection of real ales is offered, plus ever-varying guest beers which usually include a brew or two from Cornish breweries; there may be an extra guest beer on the upstairs bar only - worth checking.

The opened-out, irregularly-shaped single room has been extensively refurbished, with plenty of wood in the floors and as tongue-in-groove wall panelling, as well as some natural stone. Furnishings include a mix of old wooden tables and chairs for the drinkers and diners, and some comfortable faux-leather easy chairs for more relaxed socialising. A short but imaginative menu is available, as the managers wish to gain a name for good food as well as beer. A wood-burning fire in a proper fireplace in the right-hand half of the room provides for winter warming.

      This is an unspoilt and timeless old town centre local which has a lively if narrow taproom and two quiet snugs at the back; the old 'bottle & jug' hatch still exists for outside drinkers. Bass is ever present, unusually in kilderkin (18 gal) casks, but the Sharp's and Skinner's beers occasionally vary, and a guest ale or two may intervene from time to time racked up on the bar end if there is no room on the unique and eccentrically-designed stillage! The planked bar ceiling is festooned with an impressive collection of key fobs, while the ancient and unpolished bar top shows distinct signs of warping, and is often covered in an eclectic selection of bar towels.

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.

A small snug on a lower level is accessed through a low doorway and sown a few steps, and is mainly intended for dining. Behind the bar is another large room dedicated to the pool table. The three handpumps always dispense Keltek beers, with the 4K sometimes replaced by another brew, and Beheaded is known to appear occasionally on gravity dispense. Quiz night is on Tuesdays; the pub car park is limited in size.

  • Illogan Highway
    • Railway Inn Agar Road Illogan Highway TR15 3EF Telephone(01209) 214584

      This local community pub, popular with young people, has been opened out into one large L-shaped bar which houses a pool table and TV screens; however, a smaller annex serves as a family room and dining area. The small beer garden makes a pleasant sun-trap. Food is available all day. The pub features sports TV as well as occasional live entertainment with a focus more on karaoke evenings.

  • Kelly Bray
    • Swingletree 202 Launceston Road Kelly Bray PL17 8DU Telephone(01579) 382395

      This welcoming local catering for all ages was formerly called the Railway as it is located opposite the site of the former Callington railway station. The present name is a corruption of 'swinging tree', a type of bar used with horses to pull carts etc, and examples hang from the ceiling. Food obviously plays an important part in the pub's business - most of the tables are pre-laid up for meals - but there are plenty of bar stools as well for drinkers. The single, nicely decorated U-shaped bar room lends itself as lounge, eating area and games room; there is a pool table and TV set, and the locals play euchre and darts; the pub also supports a cricket team. There is also an adjoining conservatory in which to eat and drink, and a pleasant garden with covered outdoor patio for smokers. Live entertainment appears at weekends; at other times there is piped musak which some might find a little intrusive. There is disabled access, but no disabled facilities are available.

  • Kilkhampton
    • London Inn Kilkhampton Kilkhampton EX23 9QR Telephone(01288) 321665

      This welcoming locals' coaching inn next to the church and dating from 1785, once had an attached shoemaker's shop (see also notes for the New Inn). The bar area, with large screen TV at one end, flows to a quieter area and then on to a separate dining room. Karaoke or live music feature on occasional weekends. Two self-contained cottages are available for accommodation.

    • New Inn Kilkhampton Kilkhampton EX23 9QN Telephone(01288) 321488

      Comfortable, friendly and surprisingly spacious 15th-century village pub on three levels, with a quiet front bar with gas fire where conversation dominates, a busy middle bar with large family room hosting the wood burner, dartboard and TV - there are a number of distinct drinking corners. The pool table sits in the old skittle alley deep in the back. The bar itself is constructed of old house bricks and timber beams, with a polished wooden top. The interior similarly makes extensive use of recycled materials and is furnished with wooden tables and settles and other pew-style seating. The pub's history reaches back to the Reformation, when church properties were redistributed and the 'New' age began. Although the pub was not used by local Methodists, they nevertheless used to make weekly visits (with shoebox) to the attached shoemaker's shop, which had a connecting door! The guest beer is changed every weekend; the cider is often from Shepton Mallet.

  • Kingsand
    • Devonport Inn The Cleave Kingsand PL10 1NF Telephone(01752) 822869

      Between a narrow lane and the sea, this old pub was formerly divided into two bars but is now partly opened out to one, albeit still as distinct drinking areas. The pub is situated by the beach and boasts fine views over Plymouth Sound - but beware high tides with easterly gales, as the exterior can get comprehensively washed by the sea. The small, wooden-floored bar has snug recesses and is ship-themed. There are up to 2 constantly-changing real ales available, mostly from Devon. Live bands appear once a month in winter, more during the summer months. A welcome halt, both for walkers on the Cornwall coast path and the less energetic. The pub closes on Tuesdays in winter.

    • Halfway House Inn Fore St Kingsand PL10 1NA Telephone(01752) 822279

      Popular and friendly stone pub situated, as the name suggests, halfway between the villages of Kingsand and Cawsand. Modernised and repainted throughout due to storm damage in 2014, the pub is furnished with wooden tables, chairs and stools, and has a stone floor with an old candle-lit chimney stack as a centre piece from floor to ceiling. The guest ale is often from Rebel Brewery in Penryn. Good home-cooked food is a priority, being available daily, and though largely having the feel of a restaurant the pub nevertheless welcomes local and visiting drinkers. The pub supports a ladies' darts team, and Monday is quiz night. Accommodation is in 6 ensuite rooms.

    • Rising Sun The Green Kingsand PL10 1NH Telephone(01752) 822840

      The pub was once the Customs and Excise house in this village of narrow streets, close to the coastal footpath. Now a cosy, welcoming village inn, it is at once both popular and quiet. Its single but spacious bar room is carpeted throughout and has partly wood-panelled walls; old prints and photos depicting old Kingsand and other nautical themes abound, and there is an interesting collection of Toby jugs on display. The beers from Sharp's brewery may occasionally vary within the ranges available. Vehicle access is difficult especially in the summer, while pub parking is limited to only 4 cars. Live entertainment appears on Saturday evenings. Meals are available daily except Sunday evenings, and Mondays in winter when the pub is closed.

Recently modernised, the pub has a slate floor throughout its three rooms (children allowed in one), two of the rooms each with its own fire, and there are no machines to interrupt the conversation. A quiz night is held on Wednesdays in the winter months. There is a good outside area and a large car park, making it an ideal spot to visit on the way to or from the cove, just down the hill. The buses call at Lamorna Turn, a few minutes' walk away; an evening service runs to the pub in summer. Cider is from the local Skreach Farm.

  • Landrake
    • Buller's Arms The Square Landrake PL12 5DY Telephone(01752) 851283

      This popular family-friendly village inn in the heart of Landrake is named after the Buller family of nearby Shillingham; its origins as a coaching inn on the London-Cornwall road are still evident from the original cobbles outside and the stabling and smithy opposite. Largely open-plan, the pub nevertheless has two adjoining bars, one mainly for drinking and games, the other for drinking and dining. Pool and euchre are played, and entertainment includes live music, karaoke or dico evenings. Food is served lunchtimes Wednesday to Sunday, and evenings Friday and Saturday; this will increase during the summer season. Takeaways are also available.

A recently extended restaurant hosts weekly theme nights, whilst entertainment is a mix of pub games, quiz nights and live music. The beer garden and large car park complete a local which offers something for the whole community. The panda depicted on the pub sign dates from 1937 when London Zoo acquired its first such animal, and a bamboo grove near the village provided fresh shoots daily to feed it.

  • Lanlivery
    • Crown Inn Lanlivery PL30 5BT Telephone(01208) 872707

      The Crown is a welcoming and picturesque 12th-century listed pub on the Saints' Way footpath. Extensively refurbished in 2008, the building is in a long farmhouse style, with the main bar and snug at one end; the rest of the building is a comfortable lounge with inglenook fireplace containing a huge woodburning stove, and the restaurant. Refurbishment work uncovered an old well in the porch, which now can be viewed through its glass cover. Food is available daily with most of the ingredients sourced locally; meals are supplemented by snacks all day in summer. The guest beers (2 in summer, 1 in winter) are varied regularly and mostly brewed by Skinner's or Sharp's Breweries.

    • Lanner Inn The Square Lanner TR16 6EH Telephone(01209) 215611

      Busy if small community pub, whose keen landlady varies the guest beer regularly, a local brew alternating with a national. Extensive but tasteful alterations in early 2008 added a dining area and kitchen, allowing food to be provided where previously it could not; the main emphasis, though, is on ale, conversation, and games such as darts, euchre, pool, dominoes and quizzes. Good-value B&B accommodation is available. An orchard doubles as the beer garden and children's play area in summer. Nearby buses run to Truro or Camborne until late evening.

    • Bell Inn 1 Tower Street Launceston PL15 8BQ Telephone(01566) 779970

      Tucked away behind St Mary's church, this interesting 14th-century town centre pub was originally built to house the stonemasons who erected the church. This is a cosy beer drinkers' pub where conversation is the main entertainment. The bar sports an array of 8 handpumps offering an ever-changing range of mostly Cornish beers and 2 ciders, although the available selection may be reduced in quieter periods. The separate 'family room', also available for local groups to use, has a series of ancient frescoes uncovered when previous owners stripped away decades of "modernisation"; local historians are trying to assess the age of these paintings. Pub games include chess and other board games. Outside drinking is allowed on the benches in the small courtyard garden to the side, along the front and in the narrow town-centre lane, sheltered partly by the upper floor overhang. Food is limited to a pasty, scotch egg or pork pie with your pint.

The original building was once a toll-house for the causeway from Lelant to Hayle. The long single bar extends down one side of a large room, laid out for dining around the opposite walls and windows although there are (very low) comfy sofas with tables for drinking and chatting arranged down the centre. The room extends into a separate large space set out for more formal restaurant purposes. An intervening fireplace is open front and back and framed by massive rough-hewn granite blocks. Whilst the pub is clearly food-led, drinkers are also welcome (bar stools are present); there is low-level background piped music but conversation is the dominant sound at busy times.

The spacious, U-shaped bar has several seating areas including a bay window overlooking the village square. The bar room hosts a TV and the dartboard in the left-hand leg, whilst a carpeted side room to the right acts as an overspill drinking/dining area - food is an important part of the pub's business although it is also a drinkers' local. Wall pictures illustrate old scenes from the area as well as a tribute to the local rescue services. Above the fire is a large model lighthouse turned in serpentine, the local stone. The beer range, always from St Austell Brewery, might reduce in the quieter winter months. Accommodation is in 8 ensuite rooms.

Several inglenooks and snugs help give the pub a cosy atmosphere. The décor has a nautical flavour, with plenty of bric-a-brac (miniatures, brasses, mugs and a large collection of bottle openers) and pictures of sailing ships mixed in with old local scenes. A large model ship and a fish tank are also fixtures. Food is available daily, with 'light bites' (coffees, cream teas etc.) also offered 12:00-18:00 in summer. Note the punchbowl and ladle picked out in the thatch. Many more buses leave from Playing Place, 1100 metres away.

    • King's Bar 3 Broad Street Penryn TR10 8JL Telephone(01326) 372336

      The first known written reference to this large town centre pub dates from 1489, when it was closely involved in activities at the port of Penryn and with the prominent people passing through - Henry VII is said to have slept here. Up to three beers may be on offer, but often there is only one available, with brews from Cornwall or a regional brewery usually forming the selection. Much of the pub's interior is authentic, although now open plan but divided into a number of compartmentalised drinking spaces on split levels, the pub being built on the side of a hill. At street level the main bar and drinking area is relatively restricted, but the next level down is a drinking and games area with pool, football table, punchball and other games available; this is far more roomy and has its own bar for busy occasions (and an interesting slope in the floor - trip hazard!). Controlled children and dogs are welcome down here. Beyond this is a newer extension, fitted out with a stage and dance floor. The outside drinking space is a patio and there is a smoking area. The car park at the back is free to pub customers but you must ask bar staff for a King's Arms car pass to avoid possible clamping. The pub hosts a variety of charitable events; live entertainment Fri & Sat eves.

The bar room has a raised and comfortably-furnished separate drinking annex at the rear. Food is confined to simple bar snacks. The pub was listed as an ACV in early 2019, whilst still closed.

      Tucked away up a flight of granite steps above the waterfront, the Rum & Crab Shack may seem at first an unlikely place to find a real ale bar, the clue to its main activities lying in the name. However, the small, L-shaped bar inside the door does indeed offer up to 3 real ales, which reduce to one in the winter months. The beers vary, with an emphasis on Cornish microbreweries. The room itself is U-shaped and spacious, with the bar at one end and the remainder mainly for seating and eating, with impressive views straight over the harbour and bay as a bonus. Furniture consists predominantly of old wooden benches and settles, the décor reflecting the theme and including rum barrels and a sea chest. The bar end, where dogs are also welcome, also offers a huge range of rum as well as bottled beers from Belgium and the US. Food is somewhat but not exclusively crab-orientated, and is available daily. The bar may close during the month of January.

A range of food is available (12:00-14:00 and 18:00-20:00), but beware the hungry sparrows in the garden!

      Easily found off the main A30 (it is brown signed), there are plenty of partitioned nooks and crannies in this traditional village local. Exposed stone walls, wood furnishings and the open fire in winter create a cosy ambience. The emphasis is on excellent home-cooked meals, prepared using locally-supplied produce, but customers are also welcome for just a drink or two. The bus route 85 Newquay-Truro runs every 90 mins and doesn't always tie in with pub opening times which can be more restricted in winter - best check before travelling.

      Ancient and timeless granite village pub close to the cliffs, on the north coast of the Penwith peninsula. The Sharp's Doom Bar is rebadged as Tinners Ale, and the Sharp's Sea Fury appears as Zennor Mermaid in honour of a local legend. Phoning the pub first is recommended if planning to eat. The garden is a superb place to sup a beer on a sunny day as it faces south and is sheltered from the wind. Entertainment is confined to a folk group on Thursday evenings (when there is no food available); Sunday evening is quiz night. The enthusiastic new landlord (January 2019) plans a Beer Festival in the summer. With the Cornish coastal path and the granite moorlands close at hand, this is a popular watering hole for walkers as well as trippers along the beautiful coast road.
