This ancient building, once a chapel, dates in parts back to 950AD. Unassuming from the ouside, it is a gem internally and is simply furnished, with slate floors, granite walls and exposed beams in the two separate bar rooms, one of which is subdivided into separate drinking areas. Conversation is the main entertainment here.There is a protected smokers' area in the ancient courtyard at the front of the pub, and a large garden (with children's play area) at the back offering outstanding views over the Tidna Valley and out to sea. A newish restaurant has been incorporated. Four ensuite rooms and a 2-person holiday cottage (the 'Hideaway') are available. Expect always to find the HSD and Tribute here; the varied guest beer will be mainly Cornish or from a nearby Devon brewery. The pub hosts live music from time to time.
