About us

Situated in beautiful surroundings, The Watermill nestles on the Old Coach Road in Lelant, near St Ives & Hayle, in extensive gardens with a stunning panorama across open countryside.

The mill was built in the late 1700s by the Trevethow Manor Estate. Operating as a grain mill, it supplied the growing population employed in the foundries and other industries in Hayle and surrounding areas.

The mill processed grain until around 1880 and was then converted to pump water to the Trevethow Manor and to a reservoir in the village.

The existing water wheel, made by Harris Foundry in Wadebridge, was installed at that time and continued to pump water to Trevethow as late as the 1960s.

When the mill ceased to operate it became a riding stable. Then in the 1970s, it was restored and became a tea room. Since then, it has evolved into the delightful pub and restaurant you see today.

Didn't eat there so can't score on food but other people we've met say the food is good.. Nice cosy pub. We had dogs and they are allowed inside on leads. Good selection of drafts and bottled beers. Driven past it numerous time so thought it was about time to pop in for one.. Will do so again asap..

Such high quality delicious food. The cauliflower cheese is to die for! Everything was so tasty, I’ll definitely be coming back for more. Really nice outdoors area as well which is perfect for little ones to enjoy and also great for dogs. Can’t wait to come back!
