THE new managers of a pub in Cornwall have explained how much they've enjoyed their first week of business after taking over just over seven days ago.

Naomi and Jeremy Cooper took over the Three Tuns pub in St Keverne on Wednesday, July 19, and have spoken of their thanks for how welcome they've been made to feel in their first week. 

Naomi told The Packet: "It's been fantastic, we've met lots of lovely locals who welcomed us into the village which is really, really nice.

"We've had some busy nights, had lots of lovely visitors stay in our rooms and enjoy our accommodation as we've got the five rooms and six bell tents as well, all quite luxurious.

"It's been great."

Naomi is no stranger to the industry, being the fourth generation in her family to have run a pub.

"My great-grandparents had a pub in Wiltshire, my grandparents, and parents in Somerset, and I've worked in the industry ever since I left university," Naomi explained.

While new to the St Keverne area, the pair have also run a gastropub just outside of Looe up until 18 months ago, having moved to Cornwall ten years ago.

"We didn't know this area, which was part of the attraction of coming down here, it's a bit of an adventure, but we know Cornwall.

"It's been very positive, I can't think of any negatives other than lack of sleep, but hey-ho, that comes with the territory when you do what we do."

Naomi explained that the Three Tuns would be putting on live music over the weekend and would be continuing its weekly quiz every Wednesday as well as more live music on the Bank Holiday weekend. 

Naomi also went on to praise her staff who she said had worked extremely hard during the first few days.

"They've really worked hard this week. It's been us asking lots of questions which probably sound so ridiculous to them, but they've really stepped up to the plate and we're delighted with them all."

As well as being delighted with how the staff had helped, Naomi told The Packet how the local community had been great and welcomed them to the village with open arms.

She continued: "We've had lots of locals come in to dine with us, which has been really nice. Lots of people coming in to have a pint and say hello which is lovely.

"We're feeling very welcome and very settled here already."

The pub has been run for the past year by Eve and Pete Busby, who have now moved to the Halfway House at Rame Cross, taking over from manager landlord Darren Briggs.
