This friendly, oak-beamed country inn dating from the 17th century, lies in a conservation area in a rural setting off the beaten track. It has much charm and character. pleasing décor and serves a good choice of up to 5 ever-changing real ales, which are normally from Cornish or other westcountry brewers; beers from Bude, Cornish Crown, Holsworthy, Bay's and Hunter's often appear (the regular Jail Ale may be substituted with Dartmoor Legend on occasion). The exposed stone walls and wooden beams allow an extensive display of chinaware, while the beautiful terraced garden affords views of the Tamar Valley. Live music takes place most weekends, with open mic nights on Mondays. A true community pub, it hosts actvities such as games nights, and a 'stitch and bitch' session (knitting, crocheting and sewing) on Wednesdays. The pub is very popular with hikers, while buses pass through Gunnislake, around 10 min walk away. The railway station is up a very steep hill st the side of the pub; for those less able to walk, catch the bus opposite the station into Gunnislake alighting at The Square.
