Newquay Pubs?

I don't want to disappoint you, but sadly all the Newquay pubs that I have been in are awful. Probably the lest awful is the Fort, but its still pretty dire. They only sell St Austell Ales, the best of which is Tribute. Not a great pint IMHO.
Try the Smugglers Den at Trebellan near Cubert, about 4 miles out of town. They sell Skinners (Truro) which is street ahead. They also have Trebellan Ale, which is their own blend, brewed by Skinners.
Two others worthy of mention are The Bolingey in Bolingey Village nr Perranporth (my local). Real ales vary, but they usually have 2 or 3 on. Or the Watering Hole on Perranporth beach, a tad pricey but good beer. They have Doombar or Heligan Honey.
Best food is at the Smugglers.

St Austell Ales, the
Not been to Newquay since 1974 in my surfing days. Beer was pretty dire almost everywhere then but I remember having some great nights in the Sailor's Arms. Is it still there ? Still "popular". Beer still rubbish though by the sound of it ! Plume of Feathers in Mitchell - just off the A30 - had decent beer (guests) a couple of years ago when I stopped en route to St Ives.

Too late now, but we stayed in Watergate Bay in June - just two miles up from Newquay - and next door was a passable pub, the Phoenix, with I think St Austall ales and a cask marque. Lots of surfer types though. Good live band on Friday called, amazingly, the Ragged Trousered Philanthropists (which was then being serialised on Radio 4). Jamie Oliver's joint is also one of the few other features in Watergate Bay - as we were with kids we couldn't go there.

I managed to make it to the 'Smugglers' on the bus. It, quite naturally was into food, but I managed a pint of Skinners and 'Shara Doom Bar' (?), which were both very good.
Thanks for the information.
