The Old Quay Inn, Truro

This village pub has greatly improved under the current management (a couple who used to run the Pandora Inn until 2009). Lots of social activities on different nights, including music sessions and quizzes, make it friendlier and less cliquey than it used to me. The managers make a real effort to welcome everyone, not just regulars. The food is on the expensive side but nonetheless very good value in my experience; indeed such is the demand for food now that it is a good idea to reserve a table for dinner, even on a quiet Monday night. Local beers are Doom Bar and Stoggs. Having lost its post office and shop, Devoran is lucky to retain a pub as well-managed and sociable as this.

The Tavern Inn, Kemble

An odd place, but surprisingly pleasant. Ended up here waiting for a train. Was given a very friendly welcome by the staff (if not the regulars) and offered the choice of having my Cornish pasty microwaved instead of the usual cooking in the oven in order not to miss my train. Large beer garden. Apparently under new (good) management. Not quite good enough to be a destination in its own right, but nice enough - and a curious exception to the 'rule' that pubs near stations are always ghastly.

Norway Inn, Perran ar Worthal

I didn't think i was possible, but the service in this place appears to have got even worse. Grossly overpriced food dragged out of the kitchen by disinterested staff. The pub does not provide the advertised service standards set out by the brewery. Complaints are met with stroppy attitude. St Austell needs to do something about this place.
