The Stag Hunt Inn is a small pub with a beer garden, boules court and carpark. It is on the main road and built into the hillside of the Cornish village of Ponsanooth. Ponsanooth is equidistant from the towns of Truro, Falmouth and Redruth, a warm village pub with friendly hosts and locals, who welcome all visitors.

Garry and Usha James have lived in the village for over 20 years and have run the pub since 2007. 

We are an evening and weekend pub and popular for our pub food and Usha's curries.

There are 3 things we are passionate about, people and communities, great homemade food and great beer.


We recently bought the freehold and were listed in the 2020 CAMRA guide due to our passion for great Cornish Ales such as award winning Treen's which is brewed by our neighbour Simon Treen who brews in the village. Usha was also recognised in 2019 as Female entrepreneur of the year by the Asian restaurant owners network for her passion for community and promoting real Indian cuisine. 

We were also mentioned in Sainsburys magazine as a place to visit.
