The Cornish Elk on the wedding bar

2016-12-22T22:20:49+00:00

Behind our Cornish wedding bar is a set of antlers from the last Cornish elk shoot of 1912. When giant elk used to roam freely on the West Penwith Moors, local landowners would organise an annual shoot in order to cull the numbers. However, poaching, pollution and loss of habitat have render the great Cornish [...]

A special request…

2016-12-02T23:31:45+00:00

Now, at Pengelly's Cornish Bar, we seek to supply any drink that our clients ask for - and we've been asked for some rather odd beverages over the years. Yet when someone asked us if we could supply Spingo for their Cornish mobile wedding bar - we were more than impressed and willing. For in [...]

Polgoon wines and ciders

2016-11-22T10:31:09+00:00

We've always been a huge fan of Polgoon wines and ciders. The farm produces some of the best wines and ciders in the south west and owners Kim and John Coulson are such nice people to deal with. As well as a collection of red, white, rose, sparkling wines and ciders, Polgoon has an extensive [...]

Cornish real ales for a Cornish wedding bar

2016-11-08T21:59:43+00:00

We've been a fan of Cornish Crown ales since they arrived on the Cornish real ale scene some six years ago. We've witnessed Josh and team create a rather quaffable range of real ales that have now started to rewards - and awards. We supply Cornish Crown on bottle and on draft, and are pleased [...]

We like Curio Gin

2016-11-05T15:59:38+00:00

While out and about in Cornwall looking for the best spirits to put behind Pengelly's Cornish Bar, we met up with William and Rubina Tyler-Street. Pengelly's Cornish Bar proprietor Nigel Pengelly used to go to school with William so they had a lot to catch up on. As it turns out, William is the creator [...]

A meeting with Scarlet Wines

2016-11-01T22:04:48+00:00

I've known Jon Keast for a long time, even before he started the respected wine merchants Scarlet Wines. So it was only proper that I got a sommelier such as Jon to help with the wine lists for Pengelly's Cornish Bar. After a long consultation with Jon, we came up with a wine list that [...]

LET’S PUMP IT

2016-10-24T10:00:34+00:00

We've just acquired some new pumps that we'll be renovating and using on our oak bar.As we branch out into more specialist and traditional ales, we see it as only right that the beers is served in a traditional way. So we now have three hand pull pumps - formerly of St Austell Brewery - [...]

ON THE ROAD IN CORNWALL IN 2017

2016-10-19T21:40:08+00:00

After years of running bars, events and entertainments - the time has come to spread out and share the experience we have. Having attended many weddings in a capacity as a bar manager, host and entertainer, it struck me that many mobile bars seemed short in the range of quality drinks and even shorter [...]
