Simply the best place for a fresh pint of Skinner’s right in the heart of Cornwall's city.
The Skinner's brewery tap in the heart of the City.
As soon as a new batch of Skinner's beer is ready they send a cask or keg here; we’re talking beer yards rather than beer miles. From fresh brews of their flagship beers to small batch seasonal releases, this is where Cornwall’s independent brewery turns on the beer tap!
The Old Ale House has a cult following with beer lovers. Not only is it the ultimate place to enjoy the full Skinner’s range in a friendly pub setting, but the team is passionate about serving craft beer and real cider from across Cornwall, the UK and beyond.
Expect a mighty crowd of the most sought-after guest keg beers, freshly drawn from our famous Wall of Beer. The pubs approachable, knowledgeable staff will help you navigate the selection, with ⅓ pint beer flights available for those who love to dabble, and pitchers of ale for groups to share. And if gin, whisky, bourbon or rum is your thing, you’ll feel right at home here. The pub is constantly updating their massive range of artisan spirits, plus have an evolving Cocktail and Wine List. You’ll also find many new low and no-alcohol options too.
The Old Ale House is so much more than just a pub. It’s a meeting place, a social space, a music venue and an events space. They host some brilliant local bands every Saturday night, weekly Jam nights, Open Mic nights and the Truro Folk Session every first Tuesday of the month; book a table and bring your crew!
The Hop Store upstairs is light, spacious and very much open for all drinks throughout the day and night – perfect if you want a slightly quieter setting to catch up with friends.
Call in for coffee, catch-up with friends, take a break from shopping, or join us for live music; like all good pubs ours is full of life from dawn to dusk.
