We stayed in Bolingey December 2015 new year period. This was the first place we stopped in after a 4 hour journey from Surrey trying to find our accomodation.

We stayed at Bill's Barn which is literally a 5min away and came down for a meal with our friends who live in the village. It was awesome, no skimping on portion size. Recommended and we cant wait to return in 2016!

Well supported by the locals which is always a good sign, always eat here when visiting Cornwall. The Sunday carvery is good and the place is always busy so it pays to book. If you ask you can take your dog. Good food, sometimes music, friendly people, what else could you want

We have just had a superb Sunday lunch at the Bolingey Inn. We always enjoy our meals there but today it was really special. Although landlord Mike is currently away his kitchen team are clearly maintaining and expanding the quality of food preparation and presentation. Congratulation.... Bar staff also exceptionally friendly and helpful. To think we might have lost this... More

The Bolingey Inn is a quaint old pub set in the Cornish village of Bolingey, near Perranporth. All food is home made and delicious and very generous portions. A must visit. Staff and locals very friendly. Huge coal fire in bar to keep you cosy and warm too in cooler weather.
