B&B in Falmouth – The Jacobs Ladder Inn

Jacobs Ladder Inn - B&B Falmouth

Welcome to Cornwall & the Jacobs Ladder Inn. Here in Falmouth we offer a prime location to stay, a friendly and comfortable bar, local ales, fine dining, music & entertainment. We are central for sightseeing the local town and beaches, as well as an excellent base from which to explore Cornwall.

History

Originally called The Summerhill Hotel, the inn now occupies two old dwellings. In the old days on one side was the hotel and on the other, now the lounge, was a bakery. The hotel changed its name in the 1980s to celebrate the famed Jacobs Ladder steps which were built by the local businessman Jacob Hamblen. He used to have property at the top of Summer Hill and had businesses at the bottom. So he erected the ladder in the 1790s to make his life easier. In 1840, 111 granite steps were added which are still here today.

THE BAR

The pub below the rooms sees locals and visitors mingle over a fresh pint and some home cooked cuisine. We have a great selection of Cornish ales and spirits, as well as wines and Olfactory Cornish coffee. Our menu offers pub classics and don’t forget to try our famed Sunday Roast! We promote local music artists and showcase an open mic night. We also have a quiz night, occasional larger music acts & show major sporting events on our large projector screens.

Good pub! Come here for a roast every now and then. They do brisket which is sometimes too quickly cooked but most of the time delicious. Drinks are great πŸ‘. Yorkshire's are lovely jubbly and potatoes are amazing !

Very nice friendly pub with lots of themed nights, personally looking forward to quiz night on Tue rather than karaoke on Friday. We had Sunday dinner last night and I should have said something rather than all good.... the portions were perfect size and overall it was lovely just a Yorkshire that was not cooked and cold and doughy in the inside and a hard ( would not say raw) parsnip. Would I go back again, yes for a pint but would probably skip the roast.
"We stayed in a newly refurbished double ensuite which was excellent and clean. Friendly staff, good value evening meal, super breakfast."
