Stayed here early season. Room comfortable though cold first night. Was rectified for 2nd night. 2 bars. One sports bar. Other quaint quirky traditional with open fire and slate floor. There is a separate restaurant upstairs. A few rooms B&b. If you want traditional cornish pub and quinine, this is the place to go.

A very cosy inn with open fire dog friendly just the job on a cold winters day. Good menu looking forward to lemon soul next time weather permitting.

They claim that their fish & chips is "probably" the best in Cornwall and I have no reason to doubt that claim as it doesn't get much better. Meet the "real" locals here.

By far the best of the pubs in Mevagissey with decent ales on tap, a really cosy interior and excellent pub food. We ate several times and the quality was top notch. Nothing gourmet but plenty of locally sourced ingredients with fish the natural star on the menu. Had scallops and sole for our final meal which were both cooked... More

This pub had lots of character and seemed to be popular with locals, it has a lovely coal open fire in the one bar. The pub also seems to be popular with people who have dogs, it's right in the heart of Mevagissey. We went here several times for drinks during out holiday but we only ate here once, we... More

One of our favourite places in Meva. The food was lovely and the staff welcoming. The locals were full of knowledge and we could have stayed in there all night chatting away. One thing not to be missed is when the Male voice choir come in after their church practice. The most amazing, surreal experience when they break into song... More
