Of the three Inn’s in the tourist trap fishing village of Charlestown I actually preferred this one. Since the previous reviews on the three establishments of Charlestown, the village has gained fame as a filming location used in the Poldark TV series meaning that for most months outside of winter the harbour side is teeming with tourists and if you are lucky enough to get an outside table for the Harbourside Inn and Pier House your view is of the tourist hoards walking past.
The Rashleigh Arms is set further back away from the harbour and I preferred their set up. Internally there is two large areas. The left hand side is a proper lounge bar area for drinking with the main bar with the ale hand pumps , comfortable seating, open wood fire place and large screens for the sport. And then the right hand section is a large modern restaurant area with an upmarket pub restaurant food menu.
Then externally there is a very large patio Garden area that looks like it was expanded and tarted up to address the outside only Covid period. This area has the advantage of catching the sun for most of the day and is secluded from the road and car park outside.
We utilised the Rashleigh Arms during our stay in St Austell for beers in the Lounge bar and the garden and returned here to eat in the restaurant section one evening and it was of the best meals we had during the vacation.
On the ale front it’s a St Austell Brewery house and four of the five pumps were in operation with three St Austell beers and a guest on the fourth. I stuck to the Proper Job whilst here and it was reliably good.
There is a large car park area for the pub, but it does double as an a overflow public car park and you have to buy a parking ticket to avoid a fine. But you will get the charge refunded against your expenditure in the pub.

Overall, not very impressive.
Large TV screen showing Sky Sports without the sound turned down.
St Austell Harvest Moon one of the beers on the pumps - Far too fruity for me. Great burgers, though.
If I went back, I would prefer to sit in the garden and drink wine.

This one had a good ale selction available – Tribute, Dartmoor Best, Trelawny, Admirals (£3.35 a pint) and Proper Job from St Austell; and Betty Stogs (£3.40 a pint) from Skinners. On the minus side (in my opinion) sparklers were in use, which did the barman no favours in pulling my pint. Nevertheless, the Admirals (a new one to me) turned out to be an excellent rich ruby 5% ale.

The pub itself had a couple of rooms, the lounge on the right having the food counter at the back, with the room on the left having standard seating including a number of booths, as well as a pool table at the back. The interior is really nothing special, but the large-ish garden, with a bit of a sea view, was very popular on a sunny Saturday in June. This is a decent enough pub, and well worth a visit, but I would say that it’s a bit nicer if it’s warm enough to use the garden.
