The Barley Sheaf

swiftyFamous for its live music, bohemian atmosphere and landlord-come-entertainer “Swifty”, The Barley Sheaf serves up several distinctively Cornish ales. Enjoy your pint to the soundtrack of local folk legends, or on hot days, head outside to soak up some rays in the beer garden with a frosty one.

The Old Stag


This family favourite is great for a lazy Sunday lunch. Conveniently located close to Liskeard rail station, it’s also handy if you want a swift half while you wait for your train. Budding masterminds can test their ability in the monthly pub quiz, held on the last Thursday of each month.

The White Horse Inn


The White Horse Inn, situated on The Parade in Liskeard has recently re-opened. Just in time for the summer. Pop in today to meet the new management and get yourself a pint of one of their many Cornish ales.

The Albion


A great pub for sports fans who like a beer. Often showing the rugby or football, this lively local is popular with the younger crowd. If you’re looking for a proper local with heart and want an authentic slice of life in Liskeard, you’re in the right place. Settle in for the big game with a good Cornish session ale.

The Crows Nest


This old stone-walled pub dates back to the 17th century. It was once a pay office for the local miners, who were given tokens for ale. These days, you’ll have to buy your ale with real money, but it’s well worth it. Warm up by the open fire and if you’re feeling peckish, enjoy a hearty meal from the restaurant menu.

The Red Lion


Tucked away up Lower Lux Street, The Red Lion is very centrally located. Perfect for a quick pint stop while the other half goes shopping. Drop in for a game of pool or just enjoy a quiet moment before hitting the high street again.
