“Well kept ales and great food”

The Harbourside Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 January 2013

I always call into Charlestown whenever I'm in Cornwall but I had never eaten or had a pint in the Harbourside Inn. It always looks inviting so on this cold, blustery day, I decided to see for myself. It occupies an old warehouse, the old wooden doors having being replaced by large glass windows, making it the best pub in the village for views of the tall ships that are moored in the harbour.

It was warm and inviting inside, there were a few lunch time drinkers in there and everyone looked friendly. The bar has a great choice of real ales, and today there was Bass, along with an ale each from St Austell and Sharp's breweries, plus two from Skinners, all local ales and all in tip top condition. I was quite hungry but seeing as I intended having a full dinner later on, I decided on a burger, thinking it would be a typical "pub burger". This however, wasn't any regular burger, this was made with best beef sourced from a local supplier, served in a large bap, along with tomato, cucumber and mayonnaise, along with a decent sized portion of chips. This cost me just over £7 and was very tasty, very good, and very filling.

I would imagine that this place comes alive at weekends, with its large screen TV and live music gigs, many forthcoming ones of which were advertised on the wall.

I really didn't want to leave, the beer and food were good, as was the view, the staff and locals friendly and it was really warm and cosy, but work called so I reluctantly paid up and departed.

Having recently dined at both the other pubs in Charlestown, this one gets my vote as the best.
