Could you run this pub in St Austell, Cornwall?

Are you looking for a well-loved and traditional community pub? If so, the Rock Inn could be the one for you.

Take the reins of a majestic pub in a great village known for its hearty Sunday carvery and terrific value pub grub. If you’re a born host, you’ll love the Rock Inn. Guests visit to enjoy regular live music, Sky sports, darts, and pool.

The trading area is large and comprises three inside and two outside spaces. The external spaces are split front and rear. You’ll find the bar immediately on the left-hand side and a sports area to the right. As you go through the pub, it reaches another bar area with a dining area; behind this is a restaurant area with an open kitchen and a carvery unit.

About the local area

The Rock Inn sits in the middle of Cornwall in the old village of Roche. Located in the heart of China clay country, to the north of St Austell, Roche is best known for the rock from which its name derives: the Roche. The Rock Inn is six miles from St Austell, seven miles from the Eden project and only thirteen miles to the North Coast at Newquay. The savvy operator will drive footfall from these tourist spots.

Ideal operator/s

We’re looking for a proactive Publican with a proven history of creating and serving delicious pub classics and high-volume Sunday carveries. You’ll have everything you need to meet this brief and build upon the pub’s reputation for delicious food with a fully equipped catering kitchen. You’ll also offer a choice of craft beers, ciders, and guest beers served alongside traditional beers and a selection of wines.


There are three bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a lounge.
