The best pub in Helston

Rooted in the Helston’s dancing tradition, we’re a pub that’s experienced at serving good times and all the best seasonal pub food. And whilst you enjoy a delicious dish, why not treat yourself to one of our renowned local cask ales? And when the sun is shining, they’re even better when enjoyed in our beer garden. 

The May Tree also offers a private dining room that can be used for small conferences or meetings or booked for private hire for up to 25 people. To enquire about this room, it is advisable to contact The May Tree directly.

Our Location

Just off the A394, The May Tree pub is the perfect stop on your way to Falmouth from the West or Penzance from the East. It’s also just 5 minutes away from Flambards theme park, 15 minutes from Helston Railway and only 3 minutes to Trelill Holy Well. It's the perfect opportunity to stop in for a well-deserved break and delicious meal after a day of enjoying the best attractions in the area. 

And don’t forget to explore the local area. Famous for the celebration of Flora Day, Helston has plenty of historical attractions to keep the town’s heritage alive. For a relaxing family day out, we recommend the boating lake and park.

Our Team  

The May Tree team are eager to make you feel at home. We aim to give the same warm welcome to all guests in the same manner that the people of Helston have given us.

We have a diverse and fantastic team with an age range from 18 to 50, and all of our team are passionate about ensuring our guests have a warm welcome and memorable dining experience.

Our Favourite Dish 

We recommend the Beef Lasagne as it’s fantastic value for money and a lunchtime favourite! Layers of rich beef ragu, topped with creamy bechamel sauce, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, baked together until golden brown and gooey and served with a fresh side salad and a slice of garlic bread.
