    As a Vegan I no longer support Trelowarren as they have commercial shoots, here is a link to a recent article about them in the Shooting Times http://www.shootingtimes.co.uk/features/516502/Trelowarren_shoot.html

    I can recommend Trevarno on the Helston to Camborne road they have a beautiful cafe in the conservatory and they sell Vegan soup and usually a cake or two. Last time I went they also had some small cartons of soya milk.

      Hia, thanks for your comments, we have since updated the entry for Trelowarren to show as a warning. Do you by any chance have an address for the Trevarno cafe or any other details as I cant seem to find it on a google search.

      Many Thanks

    Hi, great to see this! I guess you mean the Ship Inn, Porthleven though. And I would suggest listing the Penryn one with the Falmouth places. Keep up the good work! 🙂
