Situated in the heart of the wonderful village of Lelant

Our wonderful pub was given its present name in 1975. Previously known as the The New Inn, Praed’s Arms, then The Lelant Arms (1899-1975), it was considerably extended and modernized in 1900, becoming the building we know today.

You can discover more about our history including regular visits from Virginia Woolf in the about section.
