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

this is a lovely b&b a little out of the way but worth it but not far from all main routes to any where in Cornwall.

The food is very good and the breakfast is cooked for you fresh in the morning with home made bread. The evening meals are very good as well. The rooms are a good size, basic but clean and warm. The tea and coffee tray is a little small on a corner tray which was difficult and the bathroom was a bit old fashion with a shower on the wall very high up with mixer taps and a very very deep bath, this made it very difficult for me to gt in and out of the bath as I have difficulty in walking so this room would not be suitable for a disabled person and in any event all rooms are up stairs which again makes it difficult for a disable person. However if you can walk and fit then this will not be a problem for you.
