Newlyn Meadery
The Meadery

Welcome to a real West Cornish tradition: the Meadery. There are a few of these medieval-themed restaurants dotted around, and Newlyn's is especially fun, thanks to its former cinema location and “drawbridge” entrance. 

Inside, the vast banqueting hall is dimly lit and lively, and you'll be served by the Meadery's Wenches. The menu? The Meadery is famous for its “chicken in the rough” or ribs, served on wooden platters. Medieval purists - don't stress about the fact there are potatoes on the menu, and simply enjoy your pile of fries.

Of course, this is washed down with Cornish mead - have your taxi booked ready, as it's potent stuff. Newlyn Meadery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
