Busy and friendly historic 13th-century inn, just off the main road through the old capital of Cornwall. A stone-floored traditional public bar contrasts with a comfortable lounge and adjoining restaurant; the inn is known for good food. It also has an outside patio with protected area for smokers. A dartboard and pool table are available, and there are occasional quiz nights and live entertainment. Accommodation is in six ensuite rooms (5 double, 1 twin). There is reputedly a tunnel running from the pub cellar to the dungeons in the courtyard of Restormel Castle, which legend recounts may have been used for smuggling purposes.
