Welcome to the Pandora InnWhen you visit the Pandora, it's easy to forget you're in the 21st century. Its spectacular setting on the edge of Restronguet Creek is timeless. Parts of the Inn date back to the 13th Century and, with its flagstone floors, low-beamed ceilings and thatched roof it's not difficult to believe that little has changed since that time.
Cosy & traditionalWhile the Pandora's wonderful setting remains unchanged, everything else in this cosy traditional inn is 21st century comfort and quality.
Award-winning pub using fresh, local producePublicans John Milan and Steve Bellman have been at the helm of the Pandora since 1999. Their attention to detail in everything - from the food and service to the décor and furniture - has established the Pandora as an award-winning pub that aims to give you an enjoyable and memorable experience whenever you visit. Chef Tom Milby uses the freshest, local, seasonal produce. There's an extensive wine list and traditional real ales from St Austell Brewery. Combine this with a spectacular setting, roaring log fires and a warm welcome from your managers Catherine and Lester Croft and a trip to the Pandora is a must.

The best cream tea
Such a lucky sunny Easter Monday…..the best cream tea since the last one we had here… And perfect day and suroundings…
Had a wonderful lunch. The menu is quite extensive and varied, surprisingly so for a pub. The food was absolutely delicious and wonderfully presented. I actually photographed the dishes before we ate as they looked magnificent. They tasted even better! The staff were great too, particularly the young man who gave our little dog some dog treats! Just perfect! We will return!!
Perfect day out
Happy to be able to recommend this venue to anyone. Great food, service, style and decor & a real fire in an excellent waterside location. Nice to find a totally genuine gastro-pub in Cornwall. Definitely not the usual pretentious rubbish that is becoming so common – just real quality!
