“Visited 19/08 (Added on RB). Cornwall's current only micropub set in a shopping square off the main high street in St Austell. Mr Smalls offers 4 real ales and 1 cider on cask, and 3 craft kegs and 1 cider on draft. Also has a good sized bottle shop offereing most Cornish breweries. Serves all Cornish food and Café style drinks. Tap for the Cornish Brewery which is owned by the owner. Very nice relaxed place with very helpful staff. Well worth a visit.“

“Visited the brewery, shop and bar in July 2018. Tour was slightly boring, as you don't go in to the brewery itself. You see a video of the brewing process and can smell and taste some of the ingredients, but only actually see the kegging operation. The beer tasting afterwards was very good, we tried something like ten beers and I enjoyed most of them. Some of the Belgian styles were really good. Nice modern tap room with good beers and good food. Shop had lots of merch for sale and takeaway beer prices were very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.“

“Visited whilst in St. Austell with a couple of hours between trains. A Camra GBG tick. As JDW’s go this one is well into the top half of the table, good service, bright interior, well kept ales, decent setting, nice outside drinking area at the back. Enjoyable visit.“

“Visited the shop on Tuesday 26/04/16 ... didn’t have time to hit the bar itself. Good range of St Austell beers as you’d expect including seasonals and small batch releases, such as the Tamar sour, the large format Belgian styles, a saison and a rauch beer. 6 bottles of the non big format beers for £12 was a decent enough deal. Friendly service. Well worth the stop just to load up on some interesting St Austell ticks, would liked to have had time for a drink.“

“In the area just above the main shopping street and next to the main car parks, this is a decent sized Wetherspoon for the town in its own building sporting two outdoor area at the front and the back - with the rear the larger and more attractive option. The bar occupies the central area of the open plan pub with the majority of the seats to the left of the main entrance. It’s comfortable and sports two rows of real ale pumps that carry the the quarterly rotating selection as well as locally sourced ales.“

“Another JDW pub. Good local ales at moderate prices. This one was located in a nice building, few meters above the street. By the time we visited they had one guest cask from USA. Nothing remarkable, but always a good option to have lunch and some beers.“

“We visited the St. Austell Brewery on August 2014. Old brewery, with some modern parts, but where you can still see some old brewing equipment (some in use, some other not), as fermentors, boiling kettles, malt mills. They also host a little exhibition of breweriana and old equipments. Modern kegging plant, recently produced their first lager, so they had to place outside some large lagering tanks. Visit includes a tasting session of several bottles. Nice taproom, very beautiful, with almost the whole range of St. Austell on cask, and a few ones in keg (Korev and some belgian styled one). Food seemed to be nice, although we didn´t try it. Strongly recommended visit.“

“Visited on a Saturday night. A lively pub in the centre of town. Had a decent range of local micros on tap. Beer seemed in decent nick too. Plenty of rooms to hide away from the crowd and chat. Best of the 3 Spoons visited that day“

“The brewery tap of the St Austell Brewery, with a brewery museum attached. Hicks Bar is at the very top of a warehouse building, accessed via an iron staircase outside. It’s light and airy, with light wood tables and comfortable chairs, some covered with barley and hop sacks. Up in the rafters are barrels and woodworking tools. There are about 10 hand pumps and perhaps 12 or so bottles, which can also be purchased in the shop downstairs. The staff were very welcoming and, as you might expect, the beer was nice and fresh. When we were there they’d just introduced a delicious raspberry porter which I’ve yet to see elsewhere. (Visited 27 March 2012).“

“The brewery tap for St. Austell, whose beers I usually like. Very fresh Proper Job. There’s a small museum attached to the pub. Friendly place, worth a stop if you like this brewery, or if you’re thirsty after the Eden Project.“

“Nice brewery taproom located at the visitors centre, go up the steep stairway at the outside of the building, and you walk into what looks like a traditional pub. Restaurant was used for jazz concert while I was visiting and there seems to be events like this on an ordinary basis. Meanwhile i got good service at the pub, even got to sample a new product from bottle, cornish bock. Knowledgeable staff. Almost empty pub at my visit, early evening.“

“The pub at the St. Austell Brewery Visitor’s Centre is open past the regular brewery tour opening hours, which makes it convenient to visit any time. They have a proper restaurant and cafe as well as a bar where you can get the freshest possible Tribute, HSD and whatever else happens to be tapped.“
