If you’re exploring the Lizard Peninsula, then be sure to give yourself time to visit The Old Inn. This delightful thatched pub is run by Sara Liddle, who provides quality St Austell real ales, hearty pub classics and comfortable accommodation to all who pass by. Even dogs receive a warm welcome here and can be pampered with a treat from The Old Inn’s special menu for four-legged visitors.
You can be assured that you’ll be well looked after here – those aforementioned ales are Cask Marque-accredited, and the food is made using locally sourced produce. The superb-quality meat is sourced from a local butcher, while the seafood from Matthew Stevens in St Ives, is so fresh that Sara can pinpoint which boat the fish was caught on. Naturally, if you order the fish and chips, scampi and chips or mussels in white wine, cream, garlic and shallots here, you’ll notice the quality immediately. The passionate kitchen team uses these choice ingredients to create an exciting specials board, which features plenty of delights, and focuses on the season’s best.
Vegetarians need not fear missing out on The Old Inn’s excellent food offering, though, as menu staples like the homemade cheese, potato and leek pie, and tomato, olive and goat’s cheese tagliatelle are designed to more than satisfy. For the best in Cornish hospitality, head to The Old Inn.
