Myself and my partner were staying within walking distance of the pub for a week, so we took the opportunity to make the most of it! It's a real pub - no corporate giant manufactured rubbish here. If you're after a bistro or fine dining, this pub is unlikely to be for you but if you are looking for excellent... More

We visit the Blisland Inn once or twice a week - sometimes more often. Don't expect a family-friendly gastro-pub - 'The Blis' is what pubs used to be - but what far too few actually are nowadays. If you want a wide, constantly changing selection of ales, ciders, gins, etc., etc., (yes there is lager and wine too), you're at... More

We headed to the Blisland Inn after hearing good reviews from many people. As soon as we arrived we were told we had to go on the back room as we had children with us due to them not having a license for children to be in the bar area?? The menu was poor and on the back had a... More

I popped in for a drink with my partner when we were on a break away in Camelford. Very friendly staff and even the customers were helpful when I couldn't decide which beer to have from the vast array at the bar (a welcome sight)! It is one of those lovely old style pubs which hasn't gone the dreadful way... More

This pub is situated in a lovely area and had a warm friendly atmosphere. I got the feeling it was frequented by locals and there was a buzz in the bar. We ate in the restaurant area and were the only people in so a very quiet atmosphere. The menu gave a varied choice of your usual pub standards and... More

Visited last Thursday with four of my friends. Horses parked outside the door and inside there were a joyful atmosphere and a large cheerful crowd and behind the bar were friendly, welcoming and equally cheerful staff. Although cheerful it wasn't louder than that you could hold a pleasant conversation. We had food and it was a good honest pub-grub, not... More

Located in the most delightful village on the edge of Bodmin Moor the Blisland Inn is one side of the village green and the Parish church the other side; wonderful! This is a popular public house with a good reputation for its beer. There is ample choice with up the eight hand pumps serving a wide variety of mostly Cornish... More

Hunted this one down as it has a good reputation for cask ales & totally justified. Great choice of seven cask ales & all very reasonably priced compared with the average price of a pint. The Blisland sits in a pretty little 'hamlet' on top of the Camel Trail, is totally unspoilt & full of interesting bits & pieces obviously... More

Blisland is a lovely Cornish village, a little bit remote but it is worth finding just to see this pub. when you enter you get a friendly greeting and then you realise that you have entered a truly historic building to which little has been done for hundreds of years. We moved from Cornwall about 10 years ago so it... More
