Called in here for lunch with two elderly relatives and were well catered for. Excellent food and good portions. Did not have a chance to look at the mine, but will return to do so. Good gift shop.

This is a tour with a difference both above and below ground. For sure the Cornish Miners had it tough on this windswept hill with some of the shaft going under the sea and deep down in the ground. The tours are good with well...More

I am only reviewing the cafe at Geevor Mine as I didn't venture underground. What a surprise! It is in an interesting old industrial building that has been converted into a characterful cafe. There is a blackboard with specials on it, but there are much...More

Cornwall has more mines then pasties it seems, while most are relics of stone chimneys and engine houses Geevor is very different. A modern mine preserved in time to explain the story in detail whilst retaining the original features where possible. The site is mainly...More

Went having been told their pasties were the best. We arrived just after 12 and bought the last 2. Why do they run out so early and why are the sold ones still on display. Bad management. Good coffee but such slow service. Pasties were...More

Had an amazing day today at Geevor Tin Mine, a quite humbling but most interesting day out. The underground tour was brilliant and I'd highly recommend that, as was the whole site. Talking to some of the miners who actually worked there was so interesting....More

Hello James, Dogs on leads are most welcome anywhere on the mine site and the surrounding footpaths. They cannot, however, go underground or in our shop and cafe. Best wishes.

There are slopes and steps within the mine but access as far as I could see was good yes there will be restrictions but I would not see this ruining a good day out.

Geevor is not associated with the National Trust. I believe it was initially developed by a collective of ex-miners, this review is not accurate.
