Cubert (Cornish: Egloskubert) is a village in Cornwall, England. It is three miles south-southwest of Newquay and is in the civil parish of Cubert (Cornish: Lannowyn) which had a population of 1,155 in the UK census of 2001.

Once known as St. Cubert, the village is dominated by the spire of its 14th-century church which was enlarged by the addition of a south aisle a century later. The village has been without its prefix 'St' since the 16th/17th century when it was abandoned at the same time as the churchwardens whitewashed over the figure of St Cubert dressed as an abbot on the inside wall of the church.

The parish of Cubert was part of the St. Columb Major Rural District from 1894 until 1934 and located in Truro Rural District from 1934 until 1974. It includes the hamlet of Rejerrah.
