The Tinners Arms

The Tinners Arms is the only pub in Zennor Churchtown and was built in 1271 to accommodate the masons who constructed St. Senara’s Church next door

With its open log fires, stone floors and low ceilings it has changed little over the years and now offers a traditional pub experience with real Cornish ales and carefully prepared food using the best of local ingredients. Whilst not aiming to be a ‘gastropub’ The Tinners offers a varied menu that changes daily, including a selection of fresh vegetables. Every Thursday we there is live music with an occasional local singer or poet.

The Tinners is a refuge from the modern pace of life where you will not find a TV, juke box or fruit machine. Your mobile phone will not receive a signal. This is a place for those wishing to relax in front of the fire with a quiet pint of real ale and some Cornish cheese or a locally reared steak.
In warm weather you might prefer some locally caught fish which can be enjoyed on the sunny terrace which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. A great place to watch the sun go down.

The Tinners is situated about 4 miles from St Ives just off the B3306, is a short walk from the South West Coast Path and a two hour walk from St Ives along the slightly inland “Coffin Way” or Church Path.

Open every day of the year.

Children Welcome.
Dogs on a lead welcome.



Next to the Tinners is ‘The White House’, a Grade II listed building, which used to be known as Bos Cres, Cornish for “house in the middle”.

Built in 1838, the White House was extensively restored and modernised by the present owners in 2005 to provide two double en-suite rooms and two single rooms which share a bathroom.  Free WIFI is available in all rooms.
