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.
Arrive in style!
The Pandora Inn is in such a lovely setting, it’s a shame to only visit by car. Our car park is quite small and in the summer does get very crowded. So why not make a trip to the Pandora a real day out and leave your car at home and visit us by boat, bicycle or on foot! There’s lots of information here on our website, including details of a series of circular walks.
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.
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:

Great traditional pub with great food
Had a short trip to Falmouth and stumbled across this place on the first night. Found it hard to beat so return on the last night as well. Great food and friendly staff at a good price. Highly recommended
No contest !!
This is going to be a succinct review. There are Crab Sandwiches and there are Pandora Crab Sandwiches. Nuff said- no contest !!!
Our Wedding Reception October 2018
We booked the main restaurant for an afternoon wedding reception on October 20th for a group of about 30 people. Preparation for this, over several months, had been done at arms length in Greece and various stopping points back to Spain, the support and flexibility provided by both Lester and Catherine was stupendous, the location quintessential, the service outstanding and food to die for; a cracking day to remember by all who attended. We will always have great memories of a fantastic day. We will certainly be returning in the future.
