Located on The Moor, Pennycomequick is one of the oldest pubs in Falmouth; with the building dating back to the mid 1700’s. The name means ‘Head of the Creek’ and is the old Celtic name for Falmouth.
Formerly The Wodehouse Arms, the pub reopened in November 2017 under new ownership and after an extensive refurbishment. It has a rustic, simple yet beautiful interior and a charming, homely and relaxed atmosphere complete with a cosy wood burning stove.
Their passion is for great quality, very local and always seasonal food, cooked simply with love. Head Chef and partner Steve Boot trained at Fifteen, Watergate and was the Head Chef at the St Mawes Hotel before following his love for proper pub food. The Penny is very proud to work alongside some brilliant and passionate local suppliers and the menu changes every month to reflect this and to showcase the fantastic produce they source from the Cornish fields, farms and ocean. There is a lovely balance to the menu, with some classic pub dishes such as a Burger, Fish & Chips and Mussels and some more foodie dishes such as Featherblade of Dexter Beef with Clotted Cream Mash or Hake with Crab, Cornish New Potatoes, Bisque and Basil. Whatever you order expect great, fresh, local produce, cooked simply with love.
The Penny’s love for Cornwall, its produce and products extends to their drinks. There is a heavy bias on the finest Cornish draught and craft beers, ciders and some exceptional Cornish spirits such as Hicks Healey Whiskey, the first Cornish Whiskey for over 300 years; Aval Dor Cornish Potato Vodka and a fantastic range of local gins. They also offer Coffee which is hand roasted in Cornwall and great loose leaf teas blended just up the river in Truro. The Penny also has a small but carefully selected wine list with some classic and some more interesting choices, all of which are delicious.
