Blue Anchor Brewery

About the Pub

This is a flagship among pub breweries, and a survivor whose great claim to fame is that it is the only one of four home-brew pubs left at the time CAMRA was formed in 1971 that has had a continuous brewing history since. It is a rambling, unspoilt 15th-century granite building with thatched roof, slate floors, and its own brewery above. There are no distracting jukebox or bandits, only lively conversation in the two small bars. There is an indoor skittle alley out the back with its own bar, which can be activated during group functions, and the garden also has a separate bar and barbeque for special events such as beer festivals. Dogs on leads are welcome in all areas; accommodation is in adjoining premises. The occasional 'seasonal' beer may be a winter warmer or some other commemorative brew - a 'bragget' or honey- and herb-based beer may appear to commemorate the 800-plus years of Helston's town charter. Cider is normally Thatcher's Cheddar Valley. The pub has bus connections with the Lizard, Penzance, Falmouth and Truro, as well as the railway at Redruth. Brewery tours by arrangement.
