Reopened in March 2017, Trelowarren Arms is a quintessentially Cornish pub in the heart of a quaint Cornish village. Owner Anna Waters worked in the pub when she was just 14 and returned some 20 years later to restore the pub to its former glory and give something back to her community. Focusing on getting the kitchen back up and running, Anna has received a very warm reception since reopening the Trelly, as it’s affectionately known, and has already earned a loyal following of regular patrons.
The food offering is beautifully simple and emphasises fresh, seasonal produce, home-cooked pub classics and a few popular dishes such as Ben’s Thai fishcakes, and flavoursome chicken wings. For a classic main course, try the steak and ale pie or Kitto’s sausages and mash, but be sure to save room for the delicious homemade cheesecake of the day. The team prides itself on supporting local, environmentally aware suppliers, which is evident from the quality of head chef Ben Ibbotson’s daily changing specials board. The majority of the items on the menu are either gluten-free, vegetarian or both, although there are also plenty of dishes that take advantage of the fresh meat and fish that are so readily available to the pub. Since reopening, the pub is best known for its fantastic Sunday roast, which is not to be missed.
