    Featured in the Good Pub Guide and Good Beer Guide. Atmospheric and eclectic. A good 5.9% real ale. A must return when visiting Falmouth. Doggy friendly obviously. It's Cornwall!🇬🇧🇳🇿

    BAR OR BOOKSHOP ?
    Upstairs in one of Falmouth's oldest buildings almost hidden up an alleyway off Market St is this amazing real ale and local cider bar which doubles up as a reduced price Booshop and reading room, lounge and games room with good music. This plus the great freindly atmosphere make it seem more like a club or common room for ex as well as current students. A must visit if you want a quality pint away from the tourist rat race

    Beer, Books & Pinball
    What a fabulous pub. It is tucked away up an alley off the High Street. It has a nice courtyard out the front with outdoor seating. Inside it is a very atmospheric pub with a quirky bookstore in the pub. Plus a selection of pinball machines, which you rarely see these days. They have a good choice of real ales. A fantastic unique pub. A must visit if you love beer and books.

    Great find!
    Went here to dodge the rain and found a lovely cosy spot! Plenty of space for the kids and big wet dog. Coffee was perfect and very reasonably priced. Take 20ps for the pinball machines!

I was disappointed with my experience after many people telling me what a great place this was. Although it was our first time visiting we thought we could just walk in and take a seat at an available table. After a while we were served, but the staff member was really rude and off with us, saying that he didn't come over to serve us because we didn't reply to him saying hello to us when we arrived - which we didn't even hear. We then both ordered a coffee which came back super watery and tasteless. but politely asking to have another coffee was met with a grumble.

This was most likely just an unfortunate one off experience and going back since I've been met with lovely helpful staff. All this aside, its a super cosy cafe, the book selection and prices are great!!

Berrwolf books is a very relaxing location for a drink. There is a wide range of interesting beers & even flavoured peanuts available. After a drink you can browse their bookshop, where there is a good range of titles at very reasonable prices. Friendly staff & very COVID safe. It's a bookshop inside a pub!! What more can I say!

Nestled away in the deep Cornish alleyways of Falmouth, you will find the unassuming yet fabulous Beerwolf. Collete and I really enjoyed our time here. Jalapeño stuffed olives, smoked almonds, pistachios, and a wide selection craft beers set us riling for the night. But thats not all, want to add an academic accent to your evening? you’ve come to the right place. Alongside your pint and smoked almonds, you are free to peruse the bookshelves that are stocked with affordable yet inspiring books. We will definitely be coming back to Beerwolf, and we hope you do too!
Peace out my angels.

Went for a cuppa with family today only to find out they no longer serve dairy. My tea tasted like a coconut, not very nice. I appreciate other people like and need dairy alternatives but I like dairy milk. If it was the other way around it would be considered unacceptable for an alternative not to be offered and people who do drink milk deserve the same. It goes both ways, that's socialism. The bloke behind the bar seemed very nice and pointed out that he was vegan but I'm not, so I'll just be going somewhere else. I'm not vegan, never will be but I certainly don't expect everyone else not to be.

What is this place?
Hidden away it looks like it could be a little gem but when I went in I found it quite unusual. It was a fusion of a bar, a coffee shop, a book shop, and with 3 pinball machines, a youth club.
Decent choice of beers though.
The walls are a deep red which makes the place seem warm and cosy, but also a little dark. There’s a real fire place in the corner which I bet is lovely in the winter.
You can choose to sit on old stools, hard wooden benches or old scruffy wingback chairs.
I haven’t made my mind up to be honest. I sat and read my book for a bit with a nice pint but I wasn’t sure what to make of this place.
Some places I feel like I could happily sit and read, and drink coffee or beer for hours. But not here.
It’s quirky, unusual and for that reason I think some may love it, others may not.

Beerwolf Books is situated just off Market Street in Bells Court. It is a little over half a mile from Falmouth Town railway station on foot. You have to negotiate a flight of steps to get in from Bells Court.

There is a fine selection of real ale on offer. The ales I sampled were both in excellent condition.

The second hand books for sale were also in very good condition and you are spoilt for choice.

A most enjoyable visit which I intend to repeat when next in Falmouth.

I had been very excited to make a visit to beerwolf after discovering it on a video about Falmouth, it was described as a hidden gem with a book shop attached for you to relax with a book and a glass of wine … maybe I had romanticised this a little too much in my mind… it was not what I was expecting, albeit it was a rainy Sunday afternoon so it may well be different in the week when people are back in uni, but it was packed, incredibly noisy and the book shop appeared to be THE place for people to have deep ,personal conversation with their partners while stroking each other, leaving me feeling very awkward to the point I didn’t really have chance to look through the books which is why I went in the first place. The gentleman behind the bar was interesting, I couldn’t make out if he was rude and sarcastic or just very dry and to the point , just don’t ask for “normal milk” in your coffee , it didn’t go down well with him as “they don’t do dairy” ! I felt like I’d been told off by a teacher .

Been in here on a few occasions now and I can honestly say it's a proper hidden Gem...up an alley it's easily missed.

A fantastic array of beers and all manner of drinks awaits the thirsty scholar!!! Great staff, great atmosphere a genuine and different place to visit.

A bar/pub/book store with a twist. A very quirky modern day venue with a rusty independent twist. Unusual selection of drinks gives this place a different stamp compared to main stream pub venues. Seemed very popular with the younger/student crowd and can see why it’s popular as it does offer something a little different to the norm. Bravo
