The Pony & Trap in Chew Magna has held a Michelin Star since 2011 and was ranked 2nd in the Estrella Damm Top 50 UK Gastropubs in 2018. The “field to fork” ethos of the pub ensures that ingredients are sourced as locally as possible from suppliers around the Chew Valley and the South West.
The Poet in Matfield has recently benefitted from a complete renovation. The restaurant sits within a 17th Century building named after war poet Siegfried Sassoon, who was born and raised in Matfield.
A landmark pub almost at the edge of England, the Gurnard’s Head is your last stop for a pint and an open fire before the Atlantic Ocean. Between St Just and Zennor, this is genuine Cornwall. Wild, mysterious and beautiful, the Gurnard’s Head is an inn that transports you back to when travel was that little bit slower.
Sitting on the harbour wall of the stunning village of Polperro, the Blue Peter Inn offers a warm welcome to all comers. They offer great beer, food, superb views and live music for which its fame has spread far and wide. They do their best to ensure the journey from the sea to your plate is a short one which isn’t difficult given their location. 15A_Cornwall.jpg
This 18th-century pub in Port Isaac is awash with charm and history. Overlooking the stunning bay makes this an ideal spot to watch the beautiful blues of summer calm and the dramatic greys of winter storms. The Golden Lion takes pride in their cask ale and serves a fine fish and chips.
The pub’s position gives them great access to some of the finest fish in the British Isles and their home cooking truly has the taste of Cornwall in every dish. Low ceilings, wooden beams and open fires add to the cosy character.
Superb service and really handy guides. ★★★★★
