St Columb Major is a small town about 6 miles from Newquay and should not to be confused with St Columb Minor which district in Newquay itself. Often referred to locally as St Columb, it is situated approximately seven miles (11 km) southwest of Wadebridge and six miles (10 km) east of Newquay. The designation Major distinguishes it from the smaller settlement and parish of St Columb Minor on the coast. The parish has approx 3800 residents.

Pub Layout

The Silver Ball is a single bar pub with two distinct seating areas with a wrap around bar and a games area off that with a pool table and juke box. There is a domestic kitchen through the hallway with access to the domestic quarters. Through the bar areas there is access to the ladies and the gents toilets. Externally there is a beer garden at the rear of the property and benches at the front of the pub to watch the world go by. There is no carpark but plenty of local off road parking.

The pub trades with a traditional wet offering, including a vast range of draught products and an extensive spirits range as well as a good choice of cask ales and a variety of good wines. Entertainment is by way of occasional live music and regularly hosts bingo and quiz nights which are well supported by a good following of the local community. This, along with a dart board and pool table, provides a plentiful array of all round entertainment and sports.

I believe the pub lends itself to being an ideal starter pub as well as an opportunity for an experienced licensee, who has the ability and flair to run a traditional, well-presented pub in the heart of the community. They must be ‘mine host’ where the pub really is the ‘hub’ for the locals.

The right retail offer will consist of great lagers, ales, wines and spirits with promotions, events and sports teams.

The property is in good condition throughout and to support the new let, we will be carrying out a programmed external decoration and new signage.
