“Delightful pub associated with Cornwall’s former mining industry” - AA Inspector
BOLINGEY, CORNWALL & ISLES OF SCILLY
In a previous life, the 17th-century Bolingey Inn was reputedly a count house for the vicinity’s mines; doubtless the money men would have appreciated ale on tap without needing to leave the building. ‘More landlords than can be researched’, the menu tells us, have served here since its change of use, some making structural changes during their tenure. Today the Bolingey charms its clients with its atmosphere, serves four bitters from the likes of Sharp’s and Fuller’s, and prepares good home-cooked dishes in the kitchen. Most ingredients are sourced locally, with the specials board listing fresh fish options. Beer festival in April.

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly
Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.
In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
