About Jamaica Inn

Great food and drink await you at the world-famous Jamaica Inn, a 1750’s coaching inn high on wild and beautiful Bodmin Moor just off the A30 immortalised by Daphne du Maurier in her novel of the same name. The Inn’s Pedlars Restaurant serves tasty, fresh, homemade, delicious English food starting with hearty breakfasts from 7.00am with lunch and dinner from 12 noon through to 9pm all year round.

Food includes doorstep sized sandwiches, delicious summer salads, Cornish cream teas with homemade scones, daily specials, vegetarian and vegan options and mouth-watering desserts plus roasts every Sunday. Try local draft ales, ciders, lagers and unusual spirits like Jamaica Inn’s own rum.

And there’s much more at Jamaica Inn such as the breath-taking views over Bodmin Moor in the summer and crisp days with crackling log fires in winter. It is now a 36-bedroom hotel and the perfect base to visit anywhere in Cornwall or Devon in a day and still be back in time for dinner.

And there’s Cornwall’s largest Smuggling Museum packed with historical artefacts plus you see a short film about myths, legends, contraband, smugglers and wreckers.

Daphne du Maurier Museum with fascinating personal possession, family photos and many new exhibits include Royal Letters - original letters from the Queen, Philip and Charles to Daphne and her husband.

Farm Shop and Gift Shop packed with Cornish products and produce.

Giant pirate ship for kids to climb on in the Inn’s garden.

Monthly Murder Mystery evenings and Ghost Hunts if you’re brave enough!

We booked in for breakfast on our Cornwall trip. The food was delicious and good value. Due to restrictions it was outdoor eating only and the museum wasn't open. Would like to return when we are able to eat inside, explore and enjoy the real atmosphere of such a stunning historic place.

We had a great meal outside in the garden. The service was friendly and efficient and staff were genuinely interested in our experience. Food was very good, steak pie had real meat and no mush, the calves liver was cooked perfectly, soft and pink. Would def recommend.

Wonderful really enjoyed our experience. The staff were all really friendly and accommodating. And even though it was a bit on the chilly side and drizzley they were still smiling. Food was super tasty my dad recommends the scampi I really enjoyed the bolognaise on chips. The app to order food was simple enough to use. Very family friendly. In terms of the current guidelines test and trace and all adults have their temps taken, hand gel is available and distancing is easily maintained. Will definitely return hopefully on and warmer day.

Although we were disappointed we were too late for breakfast, we really enjoyed the sausage rolls from the Light Bites menu. Online ordering was quick and easy and any issues were quickly resolved by staff. Service was good and food arrived quickly. Staff are well-trained, courteous and professional during a very challenging time.

On arrival a queue built up even though very quiet so more attention needed there to improve arrival experience. Covid safety well implemented. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. Food ok but nothing special and very limited in choices (light bites menu) which was also overpriced. The pasty was the lowest quality yet most expensive we had all week. Whilst we didn't spend much time indoors the whole atmosphere of the place as the setting for Daphne du Maurier's famous novel was non existent. I know you need to make money but the over commercialisation will mean I wouldn't return.

Lovely setting and a beautiful building, but the food was very poor. Onion rings in particular had no flavour. Also took about 20 minutes to get our drinks. We also requested mayo and salt with the meal and the server forgot. But those things happen. Generally a bit disappointed though.

I love coming to this pub and always make a visit when I am in Cornwall. Ordering was easy, the food was nice and the steak and ale pie was delicious. Portion sizes for the children's meals are also good. It is on the more expensive side, but with that view, it's good value for money.

Lovely food served promptly. Shame is was so cold made us eat and leave. Maybe invest in some outdoor heaters or gazebo so because can enjoy their meal in comfort especially at the moment.
