Come and celebrate Norway Day and enjoy some traditional Nordic dishes at the Norway Inn! We’ll be holding a Norway themed day to mark the country’s Constitution Day on Tuesday May 17th. We will be serving a special menu of traditional Norwegian food from 6pm, including dishes such as pea soup or flat breads with pickled herring to start, beef stew known as ‘lapskaus’ or ‘kjottkaker’ for mains and ‘blotkake’ or ‘karamell pudding’ to finish. Click here to see the full menu. Our normal extensive menu will also be available. Later, there will be a disco with DJ Kris Kool, who has plenty of experience in Norwegian culture, having played on national Norwegian TV and being married to a Norwegian! The Norway Inn’s name is said to come from the Norwegian ships that brought in the pit prop timbers for the tin mines in the area, to the nearby Perran Wharf. At that time, the river was far deeper than it is today and it was even possible for small sailing vessels to discharge upstream from the pub. The wharf traded until the early 20th century when the river silted up.
