See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Up a steep hill at the south end of the town centre, this 300-year-old split-level pub is the only one in Fowey which retains its separate lounge and public bars. Originally called the Commercial Hotel, the public bar once housed horse-drawn wagons. It now has a pool table and TV, and is a popular gathering place. The quiet upper Lounge bar, with its polished copper bar top, has been refurbished and brightened, with chairs and sofas. Dining tables fill the old so-called “virgin’s corner,” a little snug alcove, in the upper (rear) bar, where ladies used to meet regularly at lunchtimes. An excellent selection of meals is available daily, 12:00-14:00 and 18:00 to the 'end of demand'. There is also a separate dining room on the 1st floor. An outside patio with umbrella cover & heaters is available for smokers. In winter, there are darts, pool and euchre teams, and quiz nights on Tuesdays, and occasional live entertainment. There are five en-suite double bedrooms and two single rooms which share a bath, as well as a self-contained flat for up to 4 people. Uniquely in Fowey, it has its own small private car park.
