Property Brochure PDF Location Map


The Navy Inn is situated at the lower end of Queen Street, just off the promenade in Penzance, which affords views towards Newlyn, St Michael’s Mount and across to The Lizard Peninsula. Penzance is the largest town within West Cornwall with a resident population of approximately 20,000 and is a popular destination for tourists year round owing to its proximity to a number of well known land marks including St Michaels Mount and Lands End. The town is also the termination point for the South West rail link to London Paddington and the departure point for the Scillonian Ferry which services the Isles of Scilly.

The Property

The property comprised a traditional bar with many character features, pool area, well equipped commercial kitchen, preparation area, rear courtyard and self contained three bedroomed accommodation.

The Business

We understand the property dates back to the late 19th Century and it is thought to have originally been 3 cottages, which have a number of character features indicative of this era, most notably wooden floors, exposed ceiling beams, some exposed walls and multi-pane windows.

Today the property trades as the Navy Inn, which is well known within the vicinity and enjoys a loyal local following. The pub has been in our clients tenure for the past 12 months and is now being offered for sale due to relocation.
