Pubs in Falmouth

I am taking the boat to Falmouth in September and wonder is there any pubs that you can get to by boat in the Falmouth St Mawes and Carrick Roads area?
Cheers
RR

Pubs, Falmouth? How long have you got?

Yeah, there are a few on the water, on the Fal and Helford.

Anywhere in Falmouth if you use a Pontoon, I'd go for the Waterfront or Chain (chutney) Locker. The Smugglers (up Truro river) has it's own pontoon accessible at any state of tide.

St. Mawes is tidal, but well sheltered, I'd go for the St. Mawes Hotel over there.
Helford. The Ferryboat is great, but landing is awkward. There is a pontoon, but the guy that operates it, tows tied-up boats off and puts them on moorings which causes no end of rows.
On the Helford village side, there's The Shipwrights, tie up 'long side at high water or there's a deep water small pontoon and a 100yd walk all other times.
Give me a shout when you're down.

There's also The Pandora on Restronguet creek with a pontoon, which a nice place to stop, especially if you have kids who like crabbing... or you could pop into Mylor and tie up on the pontoon (for a couple of quid per hour I think), there's a trendy bar, Castaways I think, (3.80 for a pint of San Miguel though (ouch)).

Just spent 2 very enjoyable weeks down there

2 hrs either side of high water for the Pan. It used to be my local years ago, typical 'Emmet' pub now.

Castaways is a restaurant, not really a boozer.

Best avoiding the Pandora for the next month or so I would say, though poor weather keeps people away - which is a bonus.

St. Mawes is fun and you can't go wrong at the St M Hotel as suggested.

For an evening, and if tides are good, try and get up to the Old Quay at Devoran. It's still a great pub with food too. Well worth the journey which is enjoyable in itself.

Castaways at Mylor (more restaurant really as mentioned) is worth considering as you can always get in there on the pontoon at any tidal state and food is served all day.

Loads of options in Falmouth.

Have a great time.

Blimey! In a canoe, you might get 10mins either side of a spring high up there.

Where are you based Marcus?

Can you tie up at the quay in Flushing? I know there's a restaurant or pub thereabouts but never seem to make it down there to see.

There are better places to leave one's boat. Go for Fal side, there are pontoons and more pubs to choose from over there.

Great night in Fal. this eve. It's Falmouth Week and 'Red Arrows Wednesday'. Packed on the water, lots going on in Falmouth.

'Hey Joe' appears to have chaffed through a fuel line by rubbing against the underfloor ducting lip in the console. I bought some washing up liquid sharpish and a bottle of mineral water and chucked that in there to reduce the expolsion hazard. . New fuel line tomorrow.

Would be worth putting some 'spiral wrap' around the new hose to protect it.

a round file is handy to take off sharp edges before you put fuel lines and cables in, convoluted sleeving is best for fuel lines and battery cables , http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.e...hp#slitharness

Cheers Mark and Dai. It'll be a 'belt and braces' job, spiral wrap and edge trim around the duct lip.
