Brewer & Bean Coffee

We believe if you want something done to perfection, you need to do it yourself; that’s why St Austell Brewery created our own Brewer & Bean coffee. Here on the Barbican, we use only specially sourced beans blended to excellence, to give you a rich delicious coffee with smooth undertones. We even offer a loyalty card, so you can enjoy some Cornish roasted bean goodness for free!

Locally sourced

Where possible our skilled chefs use fresh local produce, cooked on the premises to create your meal. We are proud of the delicious ingredients grown, reared or caught in and around Devon and Cornwall and we minimise the use of pre-prepared food on our menu. You can see where our key local providers are on our local produce map or ask one of our team when placing your order.
