The Mill House Inn
Just ten minutes’ walk from Trebarwith Strand beach, one of Cornwall’s very best surfing beaches, and a stone’s throw from Tintagel Castle, The Mill House is a warm, welcoming pub with a diverse food and drink offering and attractive decor. Behind the bar there’s a tempting range of beers including real ale, exclusively from the nearby Tintagel Brewery, as well as Cornish lager and cider. The extensive wine list comes from the team’s own wine business, Experience Wine, so complements the menu perfectly.
As you settle down in one of two light and airy restaurants overlooking the mill stream, note that the varied range of food on the menu is all locally sourced and homemade where possible. Perhaps you’ll start with the local mussels, with white wine, garlic, parsley and lemon, paired perfectly with a crisp glass of Spanish verdejo. Follow with the pan-fried Cornish duck breast, Parmentier roasted root vegetables, sweet potato purée, tenderstem broccoli and Port jus, with which we would recommend the Chilean cabernet sauvignon. For dessert, it doesn’t get much better than lemon and lime cheesecake with clotted cream. On Thursday evenings there is a special steak deal comprising a Cornish 8oz rump steak with all the trimmings for just £10. Every other Thursday there’s live music from local folk singers and an open mic night takes place monthly. The Mill House is deservedly renowned for its Sunday roast. The Mill House specialises in private functions and is licensed for weddings, so why not make this the backdrop to your special day?
