Known as the last pub before France thanks to its location on the end of Polperro quay, The Blue Peter Inn sits just a stone’s throw from the beach and is tucked between historic cottages once used by the area’s smugglers. It’s difficult to imagine a more typical Cornish pub, from the warm welcome you’ll receive when you get there to the Cornish Ale that’s been on tap for centuries...and ‘the Blue’ has won award after award for its hot meals too.
Choose whether to sit upstairs in the restaurant or just pull up a pew in the bar and look out across the inner harbour, and whether you opt for something from the Specials board or an old favourite from the menu you’ll enjoy fresh, local food. There’s a children’s menu too, and all meals are cooked to order.
Let’s talk about the drinks for a second too, The Blue Peter Inn is a regular fixture in The Good Pub Guide, And as it’s a free house there’s a huge range of ale to choose from (including the pub’s own ‘Blues Best’) and scrumpy that you won’t forget in a hurry! The Blue Peter Inn also hosts regular live music, so check what’s on before you visit.
