The City Inn, July 1998

A cosy atmosphere can be found in this tidy and traditional inn that's on the B3284 signposted Perranporth about ten minutes walk (uphill) from the city centre. The pub (Tavern an Dre in Cornish as displayed on the pub sign) has had its ups and downs over the years but at present it is thriving and a very well supported community local. There's plenty of seating outside in the well-tended back garden with its fishpond and the occasional intrusion of high speed trains as they pass by. Unusually the lounge bar has a rather unusual collection of water jugs!

A good range of up to five excellently kept beers are available with an emphasis on beers from local and regional breweries including Truro's own Skinners brewery. They also serve food both at lunchtimes and during the evening. Food was excellent value for money last time I visited. Finally, the pub hosts regular charity events. I'm told these include an annual conker championships as well as an Easter beer festival that I've been to.
