Families are welcome in this spacious pub converted from a Victorian coach house and stables, adjacent to Paradise Park wildlife sanctuary. It is a large, one-room bar whose décor is a mix of local industrial paraphernalia and horse paintings on the walls, painted-up casks over the bar area, and an end wall decorated with a large dominant frieze by Terry English depicting scenes from Cornwall's industrial past. Tables are separated by elaborate cast iron partitions reflecting the former stables, plus coach and stable fitments. A pool table occupies the space below the frieze unless more dining space is required in the summer. Outside is a large seating area; parking is shared with the wildlife sanctuary. There is also a snooker room upstairs. Two changing beers are offered in the summer from Cornish or Devon breweries, and one in the winter.
