Its spectacular setting on the edge of Restronguet Creek is timeless. Parts of the Inn date back to the 13th Century and, with its flagstone floors, low-beamed ceilings and thatched roof it's not difficult to believe that little has changed since that time.
Publicans John Milan and Steve Bellman have been at the helm of the Pandora since 1999. Their attention to detail in everything – from the food and service to the décor and furniture – has established the Pandora as an award-winning pub that aims to give you an enjoyable and memorable experience whenever you visit.
Dining at the Pandora is a real treat. Not only is food served all day, but you have lots of choices where to eat it too! Inside, the ground floor of the pub meanders through a series of rooms where cosy nooks and corners provide plenty of secluded areas for you to dine. Outside on warmer days you can eat at tables overlooking the water’s edge, or dine 'on the water' itself – seated on our popular pontoon.
Back inside, the Upper Deck dining room is a beautiful vaulted space that can accommodate larger groups and parties.In the summer months, Cornish cream teas are served every afternoon on the pontoon or in the bar. Wherever possible, chef Tom Milby sources our ingredients from Cornish farmers and fishermen. To make the most of the carefully selected produce, your food is cooked to order and may sometimes take a little longer to be served. We always do our best to serve you as quickly and efficiently as we can.

SUPPORTING CORNISH WILDLIFE
The Pandora Inn is now a member of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust having joined its Business Supporter scheme. As a business, we work hard to be as green as we possibly can and we recognise that one of the most important things about the Pandora is its spectacular natural setting on Restronguet Creek… a haven for wildlife.
The Cornwall Wildlife Trust is the leading local charity working to protect and enhance Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places. We look forward to working with the Trust to help customers discover more about the wildlife and landscape that we are privileged to enjoy. We will be introducing a number of new initiatives over the summer months – especially for our younger visitors.
