About the hotel
if you want solid comfort and a feeling of things as they used to be, you'll come to this famous old 12th century inn. It lies next to the church of St Odulphus, in the old Cornish village of Pillaton, tucked away among the charming winding lanes so typical of this county, yet only 15 mins from the Tamar Bridge. Here you will find real atmosphere and the unselfconscious dignity of great age; for the Weary Friar originally housed the builders of the church and then became a rest-house inn.
Today it welcomes you to good food and cheerful service. The large stone fireplaces, the copper and brass and the dark beams contrast strongly with the white walls, but the Weary Friar moves with the times too. There are fitted carpets everywhere and every bedroom is heated and has it's own bathroom, built in wardrobe and colour telvision. We are famous for our cuisine and very proud of our reputation. Luncheon and dinner menus are a la carte or table d'hote. The restaurant is open to non-residents who have often come a long way to eat some of the house specialities. Pillaton is ideally situated for visiting the lovely spots of East Cornwall and West Devon. Just below the village is Lynher Valley where the river tumbles over weirs and under bridges. It is full of salmon and trout, ask about the fishing. Whether you have been golfing, fishing, touring, riding, sailing, swimming or mearly walking in the lovely lanes that have so little holiday traffic, it is pleasant to find yourself, at evenfall, far from the madding crowd, deep in the cornish countryside. Not only are we a good place to come and visit during the summer, but also 'out of season'; for spring comes early and our autumns are generally warm; and best of all, at Christmas the Weary Friar really comes into it's own. Tall red candles, holly, ivy and mistletoe are everywhere. The yule log burns and the morris dancers pay us a visit and the carolers call. Inside, the punch flows and christmas fare abounds; a truly old-fashioned english country scene

Bedroom not warm enough
On the first night I was cold.
The bedroom was freezing when we arrived....
Lovely country pub
Very welcoming and friendly staff.
Bedroom and bathroom is very small but spotlessly clean. The food available in the evening is excellent with a wide menu. Breakfast was equally good. I've stayed here a couple of times and look forward to staying again. If you don't know the area use a map or sat nav as its not the easiest place to find but worth the trip.
