“Beautiful setting, delicious food and wonderful staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I travel around Cornwall a lot and have stayed in many places in recent years. The Crown Inn however, is by far the best accommodation I have come across! The rooms are light, spacious and immaculate. They’re set rather picturesquely at the back of the pub, facing wonderful gardens and countryside. The pub itself is everything you want could want from a traditional Cornish pub! The menu serves up a mixture of traditional pub grub (all portions are absolutely huge) along with freshly made curries that I’m told the chef makes to order. I’m not a really a real ale person, however the locals certainly are and it really adds to the whole atmosphere of the place. The landlord and landlady couldn’t have been more accommodating and I would certainly recommend going for both bed and breakfast, because the full English is delicious. The Crown Inn is like a little escape from reality and a wonderful retreat from busy life. It’s near enough to everything (15-20mins to any attraction/tourist spot) but far enough away from it all, quiet and very relaxing. Will definitely be back again soon!!!

Just home from a beautiful week in Cornwall, made even better by the outstanding standards of the Crown Inn, Crowntown, Helston.

Our lodge was immaculately clean, spacious and had everything we needed, added to this the staff and hosts were second to none, nothing was too much trouble.

A lovely setting with good real ales, poured straight from the cask as such ale dictates, a wide selection of meals to choose from, good quality and huge portions.

To the earlier comments re the Dublin Bay Mussels, whilst they may be frozen, this is a good quality family run business. Yes fresh Newlynn Mussels would be fabulous, but they would also be much higher in price - and the Crown does an amazingly good job and attracting families on family budgets. To be fair there are plenty of opportunities on days out to have that extra special super duper fish speciality if that is what you want, but few of us these days can afford it everyday of our holiday!!!!

Well done to Bernie and Dave and all the staff at The Crown Inn, who went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay so very enjoyable, even allowing us to come back to them for breakfast when we had moved on to another establishment as we had booked so late the Crown could only accommodate us for 2 nights, will know better next time and we will be booking in advance and will be staying here for our whole visit.

Big thank you to you all for a great holiday.

Room Tip: Book Early as the Crown is very popular and has numerous return visitors year on year.

We stayed at this pub in June for 5 days bed and breakfast,after booking our break in april.We had read the reviews and thought it sounded great.In May we read fandango"s review and were slightly put off.
Our break was fantastic,the food (as the other reviews stated) was supurb ,this is the best pub food we have had,the real ales of which there are 4 always on was second to none and is still served straight from the cask.Dave and Bernie are first class publicans and nothing is to much trouble.This is the first review i have written , but felt compelled to write it.We have booked a late summer break at the crown and have reccomended the crown to our friends and familly.

Room Tip: The lodges are detached from the pub , but set within the grounds.The lodges are all fairly big and...

The rooms are chalet like and spacious, the people here are all lovely and can't do enough to help you. the only problem with the Crown Inn is that they buy their food in from someone like Brakes. Why sell boil in the bag Irish mussels when you are a few miles from lovely fresh Newlynn mussels? I understand why pubs buy in this kind of food, but when I stayed at the Ship in Portloe they had to turn people away for their home cooked food so give it a try guys!

The breakfast is enormous, it could keep you going for days, and the real ale is good if slightly chillier than it should be. I would stay here again, but I wouldn't eat here.

Loved the food and atmostphere in this local pub so much we spent two of our three nights weekend break eating here. Made to feel very welcome on both occasions even though on one visit there was a Christening party. Great Cornish beer on tap too,
Apparently there are lodges behind the pub and if you stay the night you have a full English for breakfast the next morning. You won't need a lunch after that if the evening meals are anything to go by.Will definitely return.

Visiting the Crown inn in April and this will be my 11th time in the past 6 years.
The warm friendly pub is second to none in West Cornwall & is a great base for a touring holiday. The food is great and not pricey but the full English breakfast is awesome just what us rugby fans need to start the day.
I have taken my family down a couple of times and they love the place.
Great place in rugged Cornwall and Dave & Bernie will always look after you.

This is a homely and comfortable place to stay. We arrived early evening to a warm welcome from the owners. Our room had a double and a single bed. The room was spotless, pleasantly decorated and already warmed up for us. Parking was a short path from the Brambly lodge we were staying in. After dropping off the bags we went into the Crown Inn a few metres away from our lodge to a choice of real ales and a hearty menu. This is the best pub food we have ever had and our full cooked breakfast was equally as delicious. The location was quiet, picturesque and convienient for local attractions. About five minutes from Helston town centre in the car and about half an hours drive from Penzance, St Michael's Mount and the Lizard. Definately will go back.
