Complete with a harbour view, a log fire, pool table and of course, a stunning selection of local beers, the Red Lion ticks all the right boxes for a classic Cornish pub. It’s popular with both locals and tourists alike – many come for the famous steaks, but stay for the warm and friendly atmosphere. If the weather happens to be misbehaving itself, spending a wet afternoon here playing cards is always a good bet.
If you’ve got the brood with you, the Fort Inn in Newquay is where you’ll want to take them. Perhaps the most family-friendly pub in Newquay, the Fort happily caters for even the fussiest of kids, alongside its usual pub-fare menu of fresh, local ingredients. The dining area is spacious, with huge windows which overlook Towan beach – but if it’s sunny out, get yourself a table in the beer patio to soak up those Cornish rays and enjoy the view.
With a beautiful beer garden, beamed ceilings, and a small but excellent menu, the Tavern Inn is a great spot to while away an afternoon or two with friends and family. The Tavern prides itself on using simple and local produce to create the best dishes whose ingredients speak for themselves. And when dinner is done, the Tavern becomes a great venue for live music, pub quizzes and weekend gigs. What’s not to love?
A little further afield in Crantock is the award-winning Bowgie Inn. Sitting pretty atop the West Pentire headland, the Bowgie Inn lords over the golden expanse of Crantock bay, and boasts panoramic views of the surrounding scenery. There’s also a brand new outdoor terrace to sip wine on, so you can forget about everything else for a while and watch the world go by. Modern, laid back, and in just about the most dramatic location in Cornwall, it’s well worth a visit to this famous pub.
The Two Clomes is a classic Cornish pub set back slightly from the hustle and bustle of Newquay town centre. Boasting a log fire for colder days, and a sunny beer garden for warm ones, the Two Clomes offers customers a wide range of Cornish beers and home-cooked food including a classic Sunday lunch with giant yorkshire puddings! It also has disabled access throughout, which many other pubs miss out.
