  • The Dock Inn, 17 Quay Street, Penzance, Cornwall, TR18 4BD. Tel: (01736) 362833.
Latest Review: Thatchers Traditional on handpump (though it looked more like Cheddar Valley to me). Near the harbour.
Earlier Review: August 2009 - sadly the Dock has changed hands and no longer sells a real cider, Spingo however is still available.
First Review: This brilliant little pub down near the harbour. Spingo on draught, owned by Jethro’s brother! They quite often have “jam sessions”, it’s a sort of pub where laid back people can suddenly break into song (old Cornish ones normally) and someone has a banjo to accompany them. A must in summer on Mazey Day!
  • The Tremenheere, 4 – 8 Market Place, Penzance, Cornwall, TR18 2JA. Tel: (01736) 335350.

Wetherspoon with the usual Weston's Marcle Hill.

Pendeen (nr St. Just)

  • The Trewellard Arms Hotel, Trewellard, Pendeen, Cornwall, TR19 7TA. Tel: (01736) 788634.

Freehouse recently under new management. Cornish Orchards cider on handpull and a good range of real ales. Food menu has local fish on offer, family friendly, warm welcome, large carpark. From August 2008 sporting a sticker!

St. Just (in Penwith)

On the coast road between St. Just and St. Ives, this freehouse well worth a visit, amazing views across the Atlantic. Draught real cider and real ales, large carpark. Their New Years Day hangover lunch is recommended! Skreach dry cider is produced on a deliberately small scale by Hugh Chapman in nearby St. Buryan.


Either Weston's Old Rosie or Weston's Organic, and the industrial, not real Stowford Press from a keg.
