Under new ownership since February 2015, The Engine Inn is a traditional Cornish Grade II listed pub situated in a rural area between St. Ives and Penzance in West Cornwall. The welcome here is as warm as the log fire. The pub serves home cooked, reasonably priced pub meals - whenever possible, utilising fresh local ingredients - and a range of wines, lagers, ciders and Cornish ales. En suite accommodation is housed within a separate converted Grade II listed barn, offering privacy, peace and in the case of the first floor room, stunning moorland views. There are regular events taking place, including a weekly charity quiz night and an accoustic night, as well as a monthly open mic night and other live music events.

Many reviews on here talk about the pub/food and not the accommodation. I wish people would pay better attention to the category of listing on this site! I hear the food is good, but we didn't try it.
This is a spit and sawdust kind...More
Went for an evening meal last night at The Engine Inn as it looked nice on the website. There were 5 of us as a family. When the food eventually arrived it wasn't bad. The reason we were given for the delay was they were...More

There is free Wi-Fi available in the main pub building but I am afraid that we do not currently have WiFi in the bed and breakfast rooms which are housed in a separate building. Unfortunately, some booking websites still state that there is Wi-Fi available in the bedrooms although they have repeatedly been asked to correct this misinformation.
