Have a drink in one of Cornwall’s oldest and most cherished pubs.
What was once the Crumplehorn Mill’s farmhouse, cow shed and hayloft is now a welcoming, cosy Cornish pub steeped in history and featuring a beer selection that has prompted CAMRA to feature the property in their Good Bear Guide for ten consecutive years.
The Crumplehorn Inn and Mill was once home to an ‘overshot’ working mill that demonstrated enormous power as twelve tonnes of iron and timber revolved, day-in, day-out. It was also briefly a counting house during Elizabethan times when privateering was a legal occupation (hence the presence of lifting holes in our slate flagstones that were used to retrieve dropped coins). At every turn, you’ll find a fascinating piece of Crumplehorn history, thanks to many original features that have been preserved and kept on display.
The cow shed is now our lower bar, while the old main farmhouse room takes pride of place as our upper bar. Both offer a great selection of cask ales, keg beers and lagers.
We live firmly by the term ‘free house’, which means we are ‘free of tie’ and able to purchase our beers from any source. Because we’re not tied to one brewery, we regularly have ales in from a wide variety of partners, including St Austell, Sharp’s and Tintagel Ales.
For those customers who prefer a lager, stout or side, we also serve the following:
- San Miguel
- St Austell Korev Cornish Lager
- Thatchers Gold Cider
- Westcountry Scrumpy Cider
- Cornish Rattler – Cornish Cloudy Cider
- Strongbow Berry Cider
The Crumplehorn Inn and Mill pub is the perfect place to unwind after a long walk, bout of Cornish sightseeing or lengthy drive. With a stone fireplace featuring a rough-hewn oak mental and burning logs roaring constantly during the colder months, our pub is a firm Cornish favourite, and we’d love you to indulge in its history and friendly atmosphere.
