Popped here in the spare of moment & what a brilliant decision it was. Been a couple of times before & once again it was faultless.

Service was superb, food was outstanding. I can highly recommend the squid to start, the braised ox cheek for main (meltingly soft) & finally the rice pudding.

Can’t wait to come back & try different options. Exceptional. Was so good I forgot to take picture!

Found Polgooth Inn on Tripadvisor, we certainly wouldn't have found it otherwise! Off the beaten track a lovely cosy country pub, lovely old style clean interior. Real fire. Excellent food, found the calves liver starter a bit too rich but the fish cake was amazing and my husband enjoyed the scotch egg and steak. Good friendly service. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow!

During a midweek break in St Austell my partner and I found ourselves looking for places to eat on trip advisor. Top of the list was the Polgooth Inn. We can safely say we now know why people rate it so highly. All staff that we encountered were brilliant, the food was amazing and reasonably priced and the inn itself was very cosy and welcoming on a cold November evening. My partner loved the Vegan/gluten free menu offered. We will definitely be back next time we're in Cornwall.

What a great pub. Whilst staying in the area my wife and I looked online for a local pub to have dinner and came across the Polgooth as we were staying in St Austell. We arrived at the Polgooth with its ample parking available. We were offered the choice to sit anywhere we liked so we opted for a little side room with a log burner in it. It was cosy, well decorated and just right.

The we looked at the menu. wow, what a menu, we had trouble deciding but in the end I went for the ‘brisket ends’ and my wife the giant fish cake. Both were huge and also tasted delicious. Cooked to perfection. The prices were pleasing too as they were around what you would expect them to be. On draught they had a great selection of beers and ales and a few really good local IPAs.

This country pub I felt really was a cut above the rest with its quality of food and ambience, would love to go back when in the area again. Just a stones throw away from St Austell.

A very welcoming country pub with a lovely atmosphere. The staff are friendly and obliging and the food well above the average. We both chose giant fish cakes and they were delicious! Finished with coffee, flat white, such a nice change to have a really good cup of coffee.
Would certainly recommend!
