Welcome to the Pandora Inn
When 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 & traditional
While 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 produce
Publicans 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 John Poole 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.
A busy day on the Pandora pontoon!
We love this time lapse sequence of our pontoon on a busy summer’s day – there’s so much going on and the scenery is stunning! This was produced by Toby Ackland one of our multi-talented members of staff. You can see more of Toby’s work here:

On holiday and called in on the boat for a quick pint. Brilliant Sax, guitar twosome playing, ended up staying until the tide forced us to leave. Great place ?
Beautiful location, amazing food, and very friendly staff. Even worth a visit on a rainy summers day. Pet friendly too in the bar area and outside, our schnauzer particularly enjoyed the complimentary dog biscuits.
The Pandora Inn is quaint and cosy, with spectacular views. The service was warm and friendly, the food second to none. Highly recommended! I'll definitely head back there on my next visit to Cornwall.
