A roaring welcome
Enjoy local ales, scrumptious homemade food and resting by the wood burner this winter at The Red Lion Blackwater.
Situated close to the Heritage Coast, between Truro and the golden sands of Porthtowan, The Red Lion in Blackwater has fast become the popular choice when it comes to a good, old-fashioned winter warmer. After blowing away the cobwebs on the nearby beaches and watching the sun sink into the sea, is there a finer way than warming your toes near the wood burner and your cockles at the bar?
“Warm, friendly and very comfortable surroundings helped to pass the time so happily”
A hearty welcome comes as standard from The Red Lion team, who have created a string of exciting events and incentives to help keep the cold air firmly outside this winter. With ‘happenings’ occurring most evenings, you can munch homemade pizza whilst playing bingo, enjoy a comforting curry, indulge in a sizzling steak night and of course, there is always ‘Pizza Saturday’. The delicious home-cooked menu is served daily at lunch and dinner, with weekends seeing food served all day, and a visit to The Red Lion would not be complete without indulging in the perfect Sunday roast, which is even available to takeaway.
Steeped in super positive reviews, one happy foodie comments: “What a delightful evening we had here. The food was great and the ales were to die for. Warm, friendly and very comfortable surroundings helped to pass the time so happily.”
Sourcing local is key at The Red Lion, where at the bar you can expect to find a selection of delicious local ales and Cornish spirits, and for the discerning caffeine connoisseur, why not indulge in a hot cup of artisan coffee, lovingly created and supplied by Olfactory Roasters – based just twenty minutes down the road in Penryn.
Christmas at the Red Lion really is the most wonderful time of the year, offering a delectable festive menu, perfect for your Christmas party and joyous celebrations. Their sister pub, The Miners Arms in Mithian, also offers the ultimate Christmas party, proving that they are a festive family indeed!
The proof really is in the pudding at The Red Lion, so be sure to embrace the friendly atmosphere and experience the merriment of a truly wonderful Cornish pub.
With good honest intentions, from serving local food and beverages to hosting charity quiz nights, The Red Lion certainly has the local community, and indeed Cornwall, in its best interest. Head to their Facebook and Instagram page for details.
