If you’re exploring the Lizard Peninsula, 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, and the seafood is provided by Matthew Stevens in St Ives, so you know it’s fresh. Naturally, if you order the whole tail scampi and chips, mussels in white wine, cream, garlic and shallots or the crab linguine with spring onion, chilli and garlic 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, vegans and coeliacs 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 vegetable curry served with mango chutney, rice and poppadoms are designed to more than satisfy. For the best in Cornish hospitality, head to The Old Inn.
