Pint of beer on a bar

The Halsetown Inn

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs

Beer festival

Built in 1831, The Halsetown Inn is named after the village’s architect and benefactor, James Halse. From the outside, little changes at this stone-built pub, but the interior reveals a more contemporary style although the open fires remain and dogs are welcome. Run by the same team as the award-winning Blas Burgerworks restaurant in St Ives, local produce drives the menus here; typical starters on the concise menu are courgette and charred sweetcorn fritters; pea and Trevaskis Farm smoked ham croquettes with curried mayo. Then for mains, perhaps go for grilled line-caught Wild Harbour Fish Company's fish of the day with saffron mash; or 10-hour braised lamb, tomato and red wine ragù, tagliatelle, spinach and Hasletown ricotta. Puds could be deep-fried vanilla custard, boozy prunes, salted almond praline ice cream and maple syrup; or peanut parfait, banana bread, raspberry jelly, chocolate mousse and honeycomb.
