Welcome to our traditional Cornish inn

The Pub

You can be assured of a warm welcome and great hospitality at our good old traditional Cornish Inn, located in the heart of The Lizard village.

Our philosophy is simple in that we want our Inn to be a place where everyone feels comfortable in good company with a friendly atmosphere, offering great food and drink together with efficient customer service.

Family friendly and dog friendly bar too, so please feel welcome to bring your dog into the bar where we also have some designated dog friendly dining areas. Our main restaurant, snug and accommodation does not accept pets.

With our traditional well stocked bar and real log fire, cosy dining areas and eight beautifully appointed guest rooms offering bed and breakfast, we are truly a top place to Eat, Drink and Stay.

Enjoy delicious local quality produce


Our ethos is to serve great pub food, showcasing  local produce and ingredients, so you wont find fancy gastro pub food but food that is homemade and full of flavour. Our talented chefs have created menus that provide something for everyone, you will find the pub classics as well as daily specials including local fresh fish dishes, mussels and handpicked crab. Delicious desserts too!

We offer a relaxed dining experience with friendly service and a great selection of drinks including an extensive wine list.

We aim to cater for everyone by offering a wide variety of choices, including vegan and vegetarian options. Families are welcome and we believe children should enjoy the same great quality produce too and so dishes are homemade.

On Sunday’s we offer a traditional Roast Lunch …. our large homemade Yorkshire puddings are popular as well as the homemade gravy.

Dine in the bar or restaurant areas. If the weather is fine take advantage of our patio garden for dining alfresco. We recommend booking a table in advance to assist us with staffing accordingly to provide the best service we can.
