The Rashleigh Arms was built in 1851 on the foundations of old clay cellars and was given its name after the creator of Charlestown Harbour, formerly West Polmear, Charles Rashleigh. It also boasts probably one of the only Grade II listed car parks in the country, basically the site of old coal storage yards, and is situated in a World Heritage Site. The Rashleigh is ideally positioned in central Cornwall and provides an excellent jump off point for lots of great attractions with the world famous Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan within five miles radius. We are also within sight of the historic Tall Ships and Charlestown harbour, a world heritage site and an attraction in itself. The Pub has moved with times and although over 150 years old boasts eight four star gold rated rooms, a public bar, popular with the locals that shows all live sport and has great bands every fortnight. Our lounge bar is fantastic for relaxing in with large leather sofas and armchairs with a touch of historic Charlestown. The restaurant is modern, open plan and serves locally sourced food from 12 - 9pm every day; and if the weather's good our patio and garden is the ideal place to spend a few hours or more!

We met with friends for a meal and drinks over the weekend. After ordering the specials main meals we were eventually informed that the chicken risottos had sold out. This might not have been so bad if it wasn't quite early in the evening and if it had been the first time it

We stayed only one night here but wanted to say how friendly and efficient the staff were - from booking in, dining and checking out. The food was excellent (bar & restaurant) and the room was very comfortable and stylish. Would definitely recommend

I so want this pub to be back where it was and we keep giving it another chance but I think that the roast served up yesterday is beyond redemption. We were in a party of 15 or so and credit to the staff they managed to seat us all together despite an error in the booking. The

Staff are always great in the Rash but we were disappointed with our food especially the burgers tonight, we paid £16 each for burgers with bacon and pulled pork but the burgers were so small with no salad/coleslaw and were very average, I appreciate a mark up must be made on

"T'Gallants room 3 very clean with inland view. En-suite is compact, the shower was temperamental."
"Choose a room in the separate building for sea views and a quieter stay."
"Ring the hotel first for details otherwise you may be disappointed. Tiny bathroom. Only just space for one person."
"Sea facing rooms at T'Gallants are away from the bar and car park, with a view over the harbour."
"T'Gallants room 3 has small (very small) bathroom - and very hot shower"
US$80 - US$160 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
