*At Zennor one sees infinite Atlantic, all peacock-mingled colours, and the gorse is sunshine itself. Zennor is a most beautiful place: a tiny granite village nestling under high shaggy moor-hills and a big sweep of lovely sea beyond, such a lovely sea, lovelier even than the Mediterranean..... It is the best place I have been in, I think" (D.H Lawrence 1916).

The Tinners Arms is the only pub in Zennor and was built in 1271 to accommodate the masons who constructed St. Senara's Church which is famous for its mermaid.

With its open log fires, stone floors and low ceilings it has changed little over the years and now offers a traditional pub experience with real Cornish ales and carefully prepared food using the best of local ingredients. Whilst we do not aim to be a 'gastropub" we offer a varied menu that changes daily with main courses ranging from £10.00 including a selection of fresh vegetables. Every Thursday we have live music with an occasional local singer or poet.


"A blissful and dreamlike 24 hours..."


The Tinners is a refuge from the modern pace of life where you will not find a TV, juke box or fruit machine. Your mobile phone will not receive a signal. This is a place for those wishing to relax in front of the fire with a quiet pint of real ale and some Cornish cheese or a locally reared steak.
In warm weather you might prefer some locally caught fish which can be enjoyed on the sunny terrace which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. A great place to watch the sun go down.
