Cornish Winter Break 12: Jamaica Inn

Continuing my account of my Cornish holiday with a mention of the Jamaica Inn.

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the latest installment in my series about my Cornish winter break. Just before I get to the main meat of the post there is…

MY NORFOLK HOSPICE STORY

I have been working with the Norfolk Hospice on an account of my story that they can use for publicity purposes. It is now online and can be read by clicking here.

JAMAICA INN

This features in the novels of Daphne Du Maurier and Rosamunde Pilcher (the latter is apparently a bigger draw these days). The Inn, a former coaching inn and smuggling hotspot, serves a good range of drinks at prices that are not sufficiently much over the odds to cause real annoyance. I opted as usual for their locally brewed real ale (they also had a few less local options, notably a couple of beers that clearly came from Dartmoor). The decorations are quite impressive, and there is an ever changing display of foreign banknotes pinned up by customers – my nephew added some Indonesian money while we were there. It was a fine adjunct to the Tintagel trip.
