Description: From browsing the arts and crafts shops and museum to exploring the stunning surrounding countryside and beautiful beaches, visitors to the pretty seaside village of St Agnes will find plenty to do - and, after discovering all the local area has to offer, will no doubt be in need of sustenance. Cue The Peterville Inn, a friendly local inn offering quality real ales, home-cooked food and the best in traditional hospitality, as well as regular live music and free pool on Tuesdays and Sundays. Everything on the menu is made on site using the best Cornish ingredients. Perhaps order a Cask Marque accredited real ale to accompany a wholesome dish such as locally sourced slow roast Topside of St. Agnes Beef, Succulent Beef and Guinness Pie or oven baked Fillet of Chicken. Diners will also find well-considered veggie dishes, such as Baked Sweet Potato, with savoury stuffing and a crisp breadcrumb crust, and a variety of specials. Well-appointed, dog friendly accommodation is available for those who want to enjoy the comfy environs of The Peterville a little longer.

“How the week went”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Meal one, Scampi, chips & salad. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were even offered a taste of the wine before buying. The meal was very tasty but small and over priced, The young waitress was very pleasant.
Meal two. 3 of us had the chicken goujons which were very tasty, 2 of us had starters 1 of us had it has a main meal the differant between starter and main was 2 extra goujons for twice the price. I opted for the mushrooms & bacon in a garlic sauce( as a starter) I was disappointed with the size of my 5 small mushrooms and 2 bacon lardons. If it had been served in a warm bowl it may not have congealed.The garlic bread turned out to be an over toasted roll with no garlic.
Meal three. The menu read BBQ chicken, new POTATOES, salad, Because the chicken goujons had been tasty 2 of us opted for this. What arrived was 3 small cubes of warmish chicken, 1 small potato cut in four covered in salad leaves just under £9 each. 1 opted for beef madras, which looked like some beef cubes had been dropped into a can of tomatoes. 1 opted for the pie which was very dry. When we were asked if the food was ok we did make are concerns known, which was meet with the offer of a drink.
After our meal we finished are drinks sat outside, whilst sat there we witnessed a couple with an hearing impediment and their 3 young children who were about to leave in their car stopped by
by a young man who stood in front of their car and demanded very aggressively that the man return to the bar(I do not know if the man had forgotten to pay or refused to pay) I do know it must have been very frightening for the children. The man who stood in front of the car was then joined by 2 of his mates who believed it was ok to have a joke and take the mickey out of the man.
The landlord was very friendly.
The young waitress who served us was very pleasant.
The bar staff were good.
Not sure what the chef was trying to achieve apart from saving money( the deep fried food was good, the home made food was very very poor.
We did not return to the pub after this.
I would like to think that a pub in a small tourist village would like to make hay whilst the sun shone and compete with the competition in the village. If I had money to burn and was dieting I would high recommend this pub has the place to go.

“St Agnes”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Situated in the town slightly away from the tourists area's the Peterville Inn is a local pub which we choose because it was easy to park in their good car park, a necessitary in this are. We were pleased with the quality of the meals and the prices, 4 meals came to £32. drinks were pub prices. The dining area is throught the bar, I guess it was the landlord who asked if he could help; instead of ignoreing us as he was playing pool. Rest of the staff were also fine. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.
Its nice to find somewhere that is down to earth.

“Great food and probably the best pie ever.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Very friendly staff. Had an interesting conversation about making pies with the chef and was then presented with the best one ever. Individual steak and kidney with perfectly cooked pastry and excellent filling. Pies are often very very poor, but try one here and you won't be disappointed.

“Felt right at home”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights in early April and were made to feel extremely welcome. Rooms basic but very clean and comfortable. Right outside the bus terminal too which was very handy.
