Conversation and banter thrive in this comfortable pub set in an old school house and quarrymen's housing complex, now part of a holiday and sports venue. A separate games area forms an annex to the bar, which features a regularly-varied beer menu of up to 4 brews (3 in winter). There are generally one or two from each of the Padstow and Otter breweries' ranges (which vary), and the fourth guest beer is usually from another microbrewery. The inn, which also has a lounge bar and dining area, and whose décor emphasises sporting and field pursuits as well as local art, is known for its good quality food. Families with children and (in the bar only) dogs are all welcome - but mobile phones are most definitely not! The pub is not far from the Camel Trail and is handy for the Royal Cornwall showground, while the buses pass within a level 800m walk on the A39; finding the pub is well worth the effort.
