The Trevelyan Arms
With potentially the largest collection of rum of any rural pub in the South West, The Trevelyan Arms in Goldsithney is certainly worth a visit. Named after the Trevelyan family who once lived in this 17th-century property, the venue started life as a Cornish manor house. In keeping with the pub’s history as a family home, The Trevelyan welcomes children and dogs.
The pub now boasts a varied menu of freshly prepared traditional pub favourites such as the famous homemade Trevelyan mega burger, sumptuous ﬁsh and chips, perfectly cooked rib-eye steaks, and mouth-watering curries. The kitchen team is led by Teresa, who worked for eight years at one of the Midlands’ leading catering colleges. According to Teresa, every meal that leaves her kitchen must meet her high expectations, which keeps the quality of food consistently excellent. At the bar, which is managed by Teresa’s husband Damien, you will ﬁnd around 100 rums that vary in style, ﬂavour and origin, more than 20 types of gin, 20 whiskies, numerous other spirits, and well-kept cask ale, lager and cider. The pub oozes character and remains largely unchanged in layout since the early 1970s; it boasts a rum bar in addition to a gin bar, which can be found in the lounge restaurant.The pub is a hub for local activity, with pool, darts and quiz teams among The Trevelyan’s regulars. Weekly bingo nights, quiz nights, live music, karaoke and charity events also feature on the pub’s calendar.
