I couldn't begin to think how many times I had driven past this pub in Par, so on these few days' visit to Cornwall, I decided to rectify that situation. I adore the pub's sign, that of a sailor returning home from his travels carrying a parrot and his kit bag, to be met by his wife on the doorstep of their cottage. How romantic is that?
As I walk inside, a couple of locals turn to look but their gaze is friendly as is the greeting from the bar. There's a good range of well-kept ales and prices are reasonable. I take a seat and decide to have some lunch here as it's just so warm and cosy inside.
I choose ham, egg and chips and very good it is too, plenty of it and beautifully cooked and great value at six quid. I wash it down with another pint of St Austell Tribute ale and to be honest, I could quite happily sit here all day.
In these days of record pub closures, it's good to see staff who truly know and appreciate the value of hospitality, after all, this is the hospitality business. How I wish the Welcome Home Inn were my local, but one thing for sure is that I certainly won't leave it so long unti my next visit. A tip top, cracking pub.
