Our View

You'll find this wisteria-clad, stone-built inn in what is known as both the Vale of Lanherne and the Vale of Mawgan. Built in 1758, or even earlier, it has been The Falcon since about 1880, named after the nearby estate’s coat of arms. Inside, flagstones and log fires; outside a cobbled courtyard and an attractive garden with a magnificent magnolia tree. Rotating real ales are predominantly Cornish, although outsiders do get a look in; there's also a dozen wines by the glass and an impressive range of spirits. Snacks and light meals appear at lunchtime, as do rump steaks; battered fish fillets; and sweet potato and butternut squash ravioli, which are also dinner choices.

About the area

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.
