Description: Following a sensitive yet spectacular restoration the Chain Locker, on Falmouth’s historic quayside will reopen in early September 2017. The newly renovated interiors will combine stylish and contemporary dining with the original and distinctive charm of the 16th century inn believed to be one of Falmouth’s oldest buildings. The first floor will provide unrivalled waterside views of the bustling key and spectacular natural beauty of Carrick Roads with two fantastic new balconies perfect for dining alfresco. On the ground floor the original bar has been refreshed and brought back to its former glory retaining the ambience that locals and visitors love. Our new menus combine pub classics with enticing specials making the most of the freshest seasonal ingredients. Behind the bar you will find locally brewed beers, west country ciders, fine wines by the glass, classic cocktails and barista coffees. Manager Nathan Boundy and the team look forward to welcoming you!

I can see why tourists (me included) and locals like this Pub, it’s quaint, quirky and in a wonderful location adjacent to the harbour.

We visited early evening on a Saturday and the place was heaving. Had to wait some to to get served at the bar, but that was not surprising or a big deal.

Good selection of draft beers and sprits, can’t comment on the food but the menu looked ok and the food coming out of the kitchen was typical pub fare, but what looked to me, like pretty generous portions.

Certainly glad we called in and would be more than happy for a return visit!

From the outside this looks like a normal pub, but the restaurant up the steps is just lovely, the views are just stunning and the food is so tasty, two of us opted for the Roast, which for £10.95 is fantastic value and it was so delicious. My sister had mussels and the portions were massive and all local, my dad had Ham,egg and chips again all very tasty! The service was second to none and all the staff were really helpful and so friendly. We will definitely be returning again x
