- WELCOME TO -
TO THE SAWLES ARMS CARTHEW, PL26 8XH
A traditional cosy country pub in the heart of the Clay Trails, a network of short walking, cycling and horseriding trails through mid-Cornwall’s China Clay Country.
Open fire, dog friendly, and a guaranteed warm welcome from Landlady Carole Williams and her team. Come and share the fun and banter with the locals in a “real pub”.
We have a large sunny secluded and sheltered beer garden, safe for the children to play, and we are family friendly. On site off road parking is available in our car park.
We offer traditional pub food including vegetarian options and a children’s menu with ingredients locally sourced.
As a St Austell Brewery “house” we currently offer “Tribute” & “Cornish” beers in draught as well as Cornish lager “Korev”. Other St Austell Brewery beers are available by the bottle.
We are very close (4.4 miles) from the Eden Project and literally just minutes away from Wheal Martyn, the museum dedicated to the China Clay industry.
We hope to see you soon
Carole & the team!

Visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan and combine this with a visit to the little fishing port of Mevagissey then maybe take the ferry across the bay to Fowey.
