We visited midweek and it was busy enough so I was glad we booked. The beer is very well kept and the food was good honest pub grub (my medium-rare steak was particularly nice). Service was good and the food arrived quite quickly.

Many reviews on here talk about the pub/food and not the accommodation. I wish people would pay better attention to the category of listing on this site! I hear the food is good, but we didn't try it. This is a spit and sawdust kind...More

About
Description
Under new ownership since February 2015, The Engine Inn is a traditional Cornish Grade II listed pub situated in a rural area between St. Ives and Penzance in West Cornwall. The welcome here is as warm as the More log fire. The pub serves home cooked, reasonably priced pub meals - whenever possible, utilising fresh local ingredients - and a range of wines, lagers, ciders and Cornish ales. En suite accommodation is housed within a separate converted Grade II listed barn, offering privacy, peace and in the case of the first floor room, stunning moorland views. There are regular events taking place, including a weekly charity quiz night and an accoustic night, as well as a monthly open mic night and other live music events. Less

There is free Wi-Fi available in the main pub building but I am afraid that we do not currently have WiFi in the bed and breakfast rooms which are housed in a separate building. Unfortunately, some booking websites still... More
