Devonport InnThe Cleave
Between a narrow lane and the sea, this old pub was formerly divided into two bars but is now partly opened out to one, albeit still as distinct drinking areas. The pub is situated by the beach and boasts fine views over Plymouth Sound - but beware high tides with easterly gales, as the exterior can get comprehensively washed by the sea. The small, wooden-floored bar has snug recesses and is ship-themed. There are up to 2 constantly-changing real ales available, mostly from Devon. Live bands appear once a month in winter, more during the summer months. A welcome halt, both for walkers on the Cornwall coast path and the less energetic. The pub closes on Tuesdays in winter.
