Welcome to the Who'd Have Thought It Inn in St Dominick, East Cornwall.

We are a friendly, welcoming country pub in a traditional setting that offers great food, and a wide range of drinks. We always have three or four local ales on draught, a good choice of lagers and ciders and a selection of fantastic wines and spirits at reasonable prices. We also have a Gin list with over twenty different gins and a choice of 5 tonics.

Our menu consists of a variety of delicious classic pub dishes, all homemade using locally sourced ingredients and an ever changing specials board using the best seasonal produce. Whether you are dining with us or just enjoying a pint by the fire reading the papers, we would love to see you. Families with children are very welcome. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar and conservatory areas and we have dog bowls and complementary treats.

We are open for drinks or morning coffee from 11am every day and look forward to meeting you.

“Another truly excellent Cornish country pub well worth visiting”

" The whitebait starters were excellent and a meal on their own. Local sausages with beautifully cooked mash, gravy and vegetables were a real treat and we didn't have room left to try the deserts. Complimented by well kept beer and wine. Would definitely visit again if anywhere near. "

“Top class food!”

" Was recorded we try this place and WOW! Amazing food and amazing value. Make sure you book otherwise you'll likely not get a table such is the reputation of this lovely place. Staff were lovely too. Will be back "

“High quality food and service”

" Dropped by after a morning of exploring the nearby Cotehele house for lunch. Ordered 4 sandwiches, all well presented with a gorgeous salad and coleslaw on the side. I myself had brie and cranberry sandwich , and it was amazing. With chips as a side, it was a filling meal - followed up by dessert. Again, very impressed with presentation (of all desserts, but specifically the white chocolate panna cotta) and quality. Fair prices and games available to pass the time. Friendly, ambient setting. Highly recommend. "
