Breakfast Menu

BREWER & BEAN

We believe if you want something done to perfection, you need to do it yourself; that’s why here at St Austell Brewery we have created our very own Brewer & Bean coffee , If you thought our blend was rather delicious already we have now decided to take it to new heights and use 100% arabica beans, giving this blend a medium body packed full of flavour. Our beans are hand roasted in Cornwall and freshly ground to order. We even offer a loyalty card, so you can enjoy some Cornish roasted bean goodness for free! 


Make your choice and enjoy!
