The Bolingey Inn is a delightful 17th-century Cornish pub situated in the picturesque hamlet of Bolingey – just a five-minute drive from the seaside resort of Perranporth. It’s a traditional affair here and the locals love it.
Proprietors Mike and Carol offer a home-cooked menu for lunch and dinner, alongside a daily changing specials board. Delicious dinnertime choices feature many local ingredients, and the meat and fish dishes can be traced back to local farms and harbours. This pair prioritises low food miles, an ethos that doesn’t end with the food – four real ales are available at all times and at least two are always Cornish. You can be sure of the Cask Marque when it comes to the real ale here, and the team has earned itself a few awards for service and food too.
A warm welcome is guaranteed from the locals as well as the staff – The Bolingey really is a gem. Make sure you book during summer months; its popularity knows no bounds.
