  1. By the Glass

    Leave a Comment

    We have recently changed our wine list to give a wonderful new selection to our customers. The list includes reds, whites, rose, fortified wine, sparkling and Champagne – and we also have a delicious English wine from Lyme Bay Winery, just along the coast. Take a look at what’s on offer on our new Wine List page.

    What’s more, you can now order everything on the wine list by the glass! And that not only includes Prosecco, but also Champagne!

    We think you deserve the best, and if you just want a single glass, then you should have it.

    We hope you enjoy sampling some of these wines. Cheers!

  2. Thank you to our fantastic team!

    Thank you!

    Jacqui and Mike would like to say a big thank you to the pub team for their outstanding work this year, especially when they were away in New Zealand and Australia. It’s hard to leave your business for a long holiday and not worry and it certainly wouldn’t have been possible withouth the outstanding work of the team who went above and beyond.

    Special thanks to Connor and Hannah. Friends of the Volly will know that they are taking a month out for a similar trip (and maybe they’ll say hello to Haydon who is in NZ until October!).

    And it’s goodbye to Aled who is off to study Environmental Design at Falmouth University. Good luck Aled, you will be much missed at the Volly.

  3. Small Batch Brews update

    We hope everyone has been enjoying the Small Batch Brews from St Austell Brewery. We think they must be having fun making up the names – Raisins to be Cheerful being one of our faves.

    They have been a real mix of seasonal flavours, Christmas ales, pale ales, festival favourites, tastes from the South West and overseas, including Slovenia and Australia.

    1972 celebrated Trade Quality Brewer Mervyn Westaway, who has been with the brewery for nearly 45 years. Fruity red ale Ruby Jack was brewed in honour of C19th World heavyweight boxing champion from Helston, Bob Fitzsimmons, known as Ruby Robert.

    The good news is that the brewery will be releasing small amounts of the Season Three brews prior to the launch of Season Four. So if you had any particular favourites, look out for them when you visit. All available on draught.

    With Mike and Jacqui back from their travels, our full menu is once more available.

    Take a look at the choices available here, or check our Facebook page for updates on specials on offer each week.

    Don’t forget that on Thursday evenings we have our popular ‘Touch of Spice’ night, when Jacqui turns her culinary skills to producing fresh, tasty food with a bit of heat. She loves to try out menus from different cultures, so as well as Indian curries, you may well be enjoying a Caribbean feast!


  5. Golden Oldies tour to Jersey

    Leave a Comment

    Ottery St Mary’s Golden Oldies took a tour to Jersey for the third year in a row. 22 intrepid footie veterans made the journey this year , with 16 playing in the team.

    As usual, we played St Peters FC on Jersey, a grand bunch one and all.

    The oldest player was the valiant Ken Mortimer, who at 69 years of age played for a fantastic 10 minutes solid. Well done Ken!

    The Golden Oldies play every Thursday night before coming back to The Volunteer for a pint and a bite. All great fun.
