Five Reasons You Should Visit The Working Boat Right Now

Established in 1876, The Working Boat was recently described by The Telegraph as a “Falmouth institution – a lively local, proud of its nautical roots.” After relaunching last year and whilst we might be a little bit biased – we think you’ll be missing out if you don’t come down and see what it’s all about…


Nestled along The Greenbank Quay and looking across the harbour to Flushing, we’re not afraid to say that our views are pretty much unbeatable. Watch the boats come and go during the day, or head down at sunset to watch the colours of the autumn sky shimmer on the water, pint in hand.


When it comes to what we’re going to drink, we’re big fans of choice – which is why we stock a range of fifteen beers, ales and ciders, as well as wines, spirits and soft drinks too. So try a sip of Betty Stogs or our very own Working Boat Beer, 5p of every pint of which goes to support the Falmouth Working Boats Association.


With a focus on good, honest pub grub, The Working Boat menu offers something for everyone. From classic fish and chips or fish pie, to our perfectly cooked venison burger and chilli chorizo meatballs. Not your thing? How about our succulent crispy tiger prawns with sweet chilli, or some Falmouth Bay crab on a fresh bloomer? The daily changing desserts are just as indulgent too, with chocolate brownies, homemade shortbread, and cheeseboards among the offerings. Drooling yet? We thought so.


Rustically decked out to reflect the maritime heritage of the site, The Working Boat also has all the mod cons including Wi-Fi, music and large-screen TVs for those all-important sports matches. After all, if you’re going to be on the edge of your seat watching England play then it may as well be a plush leather one! We’ll also be hosting our first ever Quiz Night, on Sunday 13th November (free entry and pasty included.)
