The Star Inn
Always something different and yet always the same! Mark and Debbie Barrett have the ability to make a visit to the pub the hub of the village. Of course, the bar staff and the locals add to the ambience.
Regular events of Whist Drives, Bingo, Friendly Quiz, Music Night, A-Pint-and-a-Curry, plus many more. Watch out on the board for Special Events. Excellent meals served lunch and evening. Make a point to share a pint and a bite!
The Village Shop, Post Office and Tea Room
If you are going on holiday, remember that you can order your currency at St Erth Post Office, with competitive exchange rates and guaranteed next day delivery. Please let the staff know any ideas for goods that the shop should consider selling. It now offers a low cost photocopying service in the shop, and free Wi-Fi to customers of the new tearoom. Please drop in for tea, coffee, soft drinks and cakes and, of course, to do some shopping and support our enterprising village shop. If you don't use it, you'll lose it!
Moni and Brian White are the proprietors of our village shop - please do your best to support them "Open All Hours" has nothing on our Shop and Post Office. All you want for your weekly shop IS available. Order the delicious, mouth watering, fresh local meat from R.J Trevarthen, Roskrow, Penryn, and it appears. Ask for the brochure to see the huge variety available and choose the cuts you want. Get your fresh vegetables, grown in local fields. Whether it's rice or lentils, tights or plasters, flowers or Betty Stogs the choice is there. And while you are there use the Post Office too! Why go elsewhere to post a parcel, currency exchange, or just a stamp? Kevin is always ready to advise on best services to use.
Drop in for a coffee or tea (and treat yourself to a cake), free use of the internet while there, and photocopy those important documents!
This is the third important part of St Erth's community shopping. The Market is held every Saturday at the Methodist Hall from 10.00 to 12.00 noon. Local produce are sold which include cakes, flowers, crafts, plants, curries, fresh fish, fresh pork, fresh beef, cards, Jim's bread, Kathy's pasties and other home cooking. Refreshments are provided by St Erth Organisations on rotation. There are a few vacancies for new stall-holders, enquiries welcome, please contact Marilyn on 757030.
Police Community Support Officer, Fiona Gamble, will try and visit the farmers market when she is on the appropriate shift and welcomes anyone who would like to raise any local police issues with her. Messages can be left for her on 792735.
