The Famous Halzephron Inn at Gunwalloe in Cornwall.

Welcome to the famous, award-winning Halzephron Inn

New owners David Adams, Ian & Claire Murray and their team welcome you to one of the most historical and famous inns in Cornwall- The Halzephron Inn.

Located near the idyllic fishing village of Gunwalloe on the Lizard peninsula and affording breathtaking views all around, we can offer you a unique experience.

Despite the peace and tranquility we offer in abundance, the imposing Cornish cliffs are nearby. The Inn was built around 500 years ago and is steeped in smuggling history, with the unforgiving coastline claiming many shipwrecks through the years...

We have seven family picnic tables which enjoy panoramic views across National Trust fields and the whole expanse of Mounts Bay. Many of our diners enjoy a walk down the lane opposite to the South West footpath and the mile long beach stretching from Fishing Cove to Porthleven, either before or after one of our delicious meals! The Pub is ideally situated for wonderful walks along the coastal footpath in either direction, towards Gunwalloe Church Cove and The Lizard, or towards Loe Pool, Porthleven and beyond.

There are also more tables in the courtyard and beer garden which overlook rolling fields and countryside. Inside there are a number of dining areas including cosy nooks, a lively bar area, a separate dining room and a self contained family room.

Bar now open all day and soon to be serving afternoon teas and cream teas.

Our experienced team have been at the Inn for many years. Guests often comment that a visit to the pub is like visiting a friend's home!

For those wishing to stay with us, we have 2 cosy cottage style rooms available with resplendent countryside views. Contact us for more details.

We aim to make every visitor who comes to us feel very welcome!

We've been mentioned in The Times in 2011 and 2012

"Perched above fields that lead down to the cliffs and the beach, this 500 year old inn is very popular with locals so it’s best to book. A great crab salad when it’s in season."
