We visited this pub for the second time, the first was a couple of years ago in December and we sat inside and had a doorstep Sarnie for lunch. This time it was Sunday lunch time and the weather was scorching, so we sat outside on the picnic benches and watched the antics of the divers and jumpers leaping into... More

We holiday in Charlestown 2-3 times a year and this is the place that we spend the most time in. Mostly because it is honest food and service at a very reasonable price but also because it has a pool table, that the kids like, and a great 'holiday/weekend' feel to the place. Favourites include the ham, egg and chips... More

Couldn't get in at Wreckers so tried the Harbourside Inn as they are next to each other. Did not have the ambiance or service of Wreckers but the food was every bit as good. The salmon was excellent. The bonus was the price. It was around £15 cheaper for our meal & drinks. The layout is a typical pub type... More

My husband and I had lunch here and it was lovely. The bar itself is immaculate and the decor is brilliant and in keeping with the location and its history. The staff are incredibly friendly and we had a good chat before ordering food. We did have to wait a little while but we had arrived just as the kitchen... More

The food was good. A standard pub menu at fair prices with a good range of well kept drinks. We ate here twice in a week and although served by different staff, both times the service was outstanding.

Informal and good quality food and not a bad pint served here. Lovely outside seating area facing the harbour in the sunshine.

Holiday pub on the harbourside at Charlestown. Nothing special when you enter, however, they have a good range of Cornish beers. What the Inn is well worth visiting for is their excellent seafood pancakes. Never quite the same as they are produced daily with slightly different ingredients. Well worth trying.

This is a good place for a snack or bar meal. Extensive menu of basic pub grub with a few specialities. Large portions. Good real ale choice on offer.
