See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Low beams adorned with bric-à-brac and stone floors are characteristic of this unspoilt 18th century gem overlooking the picturesque fishing harbour and the bay beyond. The unspoilt 2-bar interior still has scrubbed wood floors, granite flagstones in excellent condition and low wooden beams. The décor reflects a long association with the sea and the Penlee lifeboat disaster of 1981 (many of the crew were regulars here), as well as pictures of local fishermen and harbourmasters, and the Torrey Canyon disaster. The pub was also a favourite haunt of Dylan Thomas when he lived in the village. There is a large table-service restaurant area offering freshly cooked local produce; food being available daily 1200-1430 and 1800-2030. The 'garden' is a walled roof terrace. The pub offers the services of an ATM and hosts the occasional live entertainment. Parking is difficult in Mousehole, but a good bus service from Penzance stops almost outside the door.
