Ruby’s Bar, Padstow

Padstow, being the foodie capital of Cornwall, is bursting with a variety of delicious eateries and restaurants, however if you’re looking for a cosy place to enjoy some pre-drinks before you hit the town or want to find the perfect spot to wind down after a busy evening, then kick back and relax at Ruby’s Bar – a part of the Rick Stein collection.

Located on Broad Street, next to Rick Stein’s St Petroc’s Bistro and just a short walk away from the ocean is this charming and welcoming establishment. Ruby’s Bar is an intimate seaside hideaway which offers a range of tempting drinks from spirits to wines to beers – all carefully selected by Rick and Jill Stein themselves. Praised on its unique cocktail list and its gorgeous selection of gins, you can chill out in the lounge with your drink of choice. Have a sip of a Nitro Espresso Martini, a South and Stormy, a Ceylon Negroni, a Gin Highball, a Campari Fizz and many, many more fun cocktails. Us at Boutique Retreats highly recommend trying a gin & tonic made with Cornish Curio Samphire – add a bit of rosemary and enjoy!

If you fall in love with this petite and pretty bar (which won’t be hard with its glorious wood panelling, roaring fire and old worldly décor) then you can hire the private dining area for free and order from the à la carte menu next door. You don’t have to leave Ruby’s Bar - continue drinking merrily St Petroc’s Bistro bring over your order; freshly made and piping hot. On top of which, Ruby’s Bar is dog-friendly, so you don’t need to worry about getting back to your pooch and you can stay out as long as you want without a care in the world.  

If you’re looking to learn how to make that perfect cocktail or your favourite drink, Ruby’s Bar offers masterclasses in drinkology. Each class will show you the best way to prep, assemble and garnish your drinks – providing hints and secrets of the trade. Of course, each lesson offers plenty of tasters and samples along the way! Whether you’re looking to create a refreshing gin and tonic or wanting to learn more about Sparkling wines with a master, there’s plenty of courses to take part in throughout 2019.

Whether you begin or end your evening at Ruby’s Bar, you are certain to have a merry old time in this petite sanctuary in Padstow filled with creative drinks, good company and an oh-so relaxing atmosphere.
