The best of Polperro's pubs

Amongst the narrow streets of Polperro are four excellent pubs that all offer locally sourced food and drink, so if you’re looking to taste the very best and freshest food around, you’ll want to try the Blue Peter Inn, The Three Pilchards, The Naughts and Crosses or the Crumplehorn Inn and Mill. Fortunately they’re all within walking distance from the harbour, making it a pleasant and short walk from Harbour View. Planning on staying over a weekend? Many of these pubs off a fantastic Sunday roast that go great with a local ale or beer!
