See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This former mine captain's house tucked away on Bodmin Moor, to the east of Caradon Hill, is reached by moorland track. Now an upland hotel with 8 ensuite rooms, it claims to be the highest in Cornwall, affording panoramic views to both Cornish coasts and Dartmoor. It has a cosy small bar, popular with locals and visitors, with a separate dining area offering 'proper' home-cooked food, which is served from 12:00 until at least 20:00. Accommodation has expanded to include bell tents and hobbit houses, and a Gypsy caravan. Pork sausages, bacon and hog roast are sourced from the owners' farm.
