This very old traditional pub is situated in the Portreath valley about 200meters from Portreath beach. In olden times the pub was a favourite watering hole for seafarers and miners alike, both of whom worked in and around Portreath. The adjacent building which is now the beer cellar has been, in the past commissioned as a cafe, a fish and chip shop and even a mortuary for the unfortunate souls who were shipwrecked of the village, and needless to say we have our fair share of ghostly goings on (all friendly as far as we know!!)
The pub is steeped in character and offers a warm welcome for locals and visitors alike.
The extensive menu of home made dishes uses locally sourced produce wherever possible, and the ever popular Basset's homemade seafood stew made to order, and customer's comments suggest it cannot be bettered.
Meals can be served in the bar area and conservatory or in our separate restaurant.
Service times do vary throughout the year but are generally as shown below.
The Basset also has a great choice of beers, lagers and ciders, including our three award winning real ales. Also the ever popular cornish "Rattler" in bottles, all available 11am - 11pm (usually later on Fridays and Saturdays).
There is a large outside seating and eating area on picnic style benches accompanied by an adventure playground to keep the little ones happy.
There's nothing better in the summer than relaxing outside with a fresh cold pint of local ale of your choice, enjoying this "quaint" historical fishing village.
So come and join us at the Basset Arms and we will "SEE YOU THERE"
