user reviews of the New Inn, Helston

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Stayed within a 15-minute walk of this pub and based on our good find last year, had to return. Not really changed a great deal from my last review - food still excellent and a changing varied menu, and great beer.

There are 2 resident ales (St Austell Tribute and Skinner's Betty Stogs), and 2 rotating guests. On chatting with the friendly landlord he tries to source local Cornish beers in the summer months for visitors, and gives the locals a more nationally-varied selection throughout the winter. During our four visits the guests were Sharps Golden Honey, Coastal Reflection (a small brewery about 8 miles up the road) and two different brews (which happened to be the first two brews ever) from Poldark Brewery which is a micro literally a few hundred yards up the road (and had only been brewing since last month). These Poldark beers were priced at 1.90 a pint and seemed to be popular.

As my last review - this place is more than worth a visit if you're in the area, we shall be back.

We ended up at this pub after trying several others whilst looking for a reasonably priced, 'normal' pub food menu. The New Inn certainly didn't disappoint. Being a freehouse they had two ales from Skinners and two from St Austell, with a whole host of lagers/ciders. My Skinners and St Austell pints were well kept.

The food could not be faulted - both in portion size (very generous), and quality (ingredients claimed to be local and everything appeared very freshly home made). After one of their mains you probably wouldn't fit in a pudding!

The Landlord and staff were friendly, as were the locals. Appearances can be deceptive - you could easily drive past this pub without being tempted in - but we were glad we stopped. Will definitely return.

Decent little place out in the sticks halfwayish between Helston and Redruth. We arrived here by accident when attempting to visit the nearby Poldark tin mine museum which was shut, so we ended up here looking for a taxi and a quick pint.

Pub interior is horseshoe-shaped, cosy and tidy without necessarily being memorable - though the fact we were there mid-afternoon on a weekday probably didn't help as there were only two other customers.

A couple of Cornish ales were on (I forget which) my half was in perfectly fine, so no complaints there. Landlord was friendly enough given we were clearly there to get to grab a taxi and a quick beer. Food was available.

Not bad for a pub entered through desperation. I'd say it's wortha stop if nearby.
