Former opera singer Angela Thomas has been at the helm of this 500-year-old former smugglers’ pub for 15 years. Remote and peacefully located in a picturesque fishing village on the Lizard Peninsula overlooking Mount’s Bay, the Halzephron Inn is an ideal pit stop for walkers on the nearby coastal path. Whether you’re holed up in the cosy bar with its polished brass, log fires and low ceilings, or out in the beer garden overlooking National Trust fields, the welcome is warm and the food hearty. Fish chowder or grilled local mackerel fillets with celeriac rémoulade and wild rocket might precede locally reared sirloin steak with Cornish new potatoes and peppercorn sauce or fillet of hake with spring onion mash and prawn bisque. To finish, try the local ice creams or homemade treacle tart with clotted cream.
