our falmouth pub: The Working Boat

Est. 1876. Rebuilt 2015.

Seas the day at The Working Boat, a proper Falmouth pub on the waterfront where you can sink a few on Cornish time whilst admiring the view across the harbour.

We are open daily from 10am until late. Expect over fifteen beers and ciders on tap to choose from, including our own very Working Boat brew. And when you’re hungry there’s no better place to be. Jam-packed days mean hearty appetites, so tuck into proper pub food and generous portions. Browse our seasonal menu here.

The Working Boat is family-friendly and four-legged friends are welcome too! Your canine companions can snack on our complimentary treats behind the bar. And the Greenbank beach is the idyllic spot for a swift coastal stroll and paddle after visiting us.


There’s never a dull day down below deck. The Working Boat is always thriving with music, laughter and fun. From community events like the International Sea Shanty Festival, River Fal Festival and Falmouth Week to the Working Boat Beer Festival and Christmas markets, find out what’s on at our Falmouth pub.

Travelling by boat? Our private pontoons are free for our valued patrons to use, so we welcome you to moor up and join us for a jar or bite to eat.

"I was in heaven in The Working Boat with a rum nightcap and a pair of binoculars in hand."

TripAdvisor review, 2018

“The Working Boat pub is a Falmouth institution – a lively local, proud of its nautical roots.”

The Telegraph

"A carefully constructed maritime tangle of storm lights, driftwood and rope now knot together its smart wooden tables and leather upholstery. The menu ticks all the traditional pub grub boxes: burgers, steaks and fishy classics, including fish pie, haddock and chips and crab sandwiches. On Sundays it also serves epic roasts all day."
