However, our festive party nibbles menu at £16 (both lunch and dinner times) and set menu at £18 in the evenings must be booked and pre-ordered.
Our Mini Christmas Festival: Don’t miss our second Falmouth Christmas Festival on Thursday 19th December, where we’ll revel in our favourite carols, scrumptious food, mulled cider and more. Our chefs have crafted a special festive menu, with the likes of homemade turkey and chorizo burgers, bacon baps, brie and cranberry wedges and lots of slow-cooked winter warmers to tempt you.
Christmas Eve: Sink a few in our pub this Christmas Eve. Tuck into a freshly baked Cornish pasty as you toe-tap to our lively choir group The Angels who will start at 3pm.
