Polperro is a picturesque 13th century fishing village, originally belonging to the ancient Raphael manor mentioned in the Domesday Book. Fishing has been the principal occupation of its inhabitants for centuries, The fish market still lands the freshest seafood and delivers to our door to this day providing local restaurants with the finest seafood fayre. The Noughts and Crosses Inn is one of the oldest buildings nestling in the Medieval fishing village of Polperro. A few yards from the quayside The Noughts and Crosses is perfectly situated for walks on the Coastal path to Fowey and Looe and further afield. Originally a 16th Century bakery The Noughts and Crosses gets its name not from the game but the practice of allowing fishermen bread on credit when the ocean failed to sustain them through poor weather or tragedy. Loaves of bread would be marked with an ‘X’ if they were unable to pay on the day to be replaced by an ‘O’ when the debt was paid, hence the Noughts and Crosses. Today The “Noughts” is an Inn preparing and serving the best of local produce both off and on land. We have had a close relationship with our suppliers for many years and include them as friends and valued members of our community and team. All our food is prepared from fresh and will always reflect the best that Cornish produce can offer. Our chefs take pride in the finest ingredients and serving the best that Cornwall can offer.
