This is a large and allegedly haunted former smugglers' inn near the harbour and adjacent to the Dock Inn. Split across three levels, it has wood-beamed ceilings and plentiful nautical bric-à-brac displayed throughout, including a collection of ships' brass pressure gauges on one of the beams. The bar is on the middle level, with a pool table on the higher floor and a comfortable seating area on the lower. There is also a small snug near the front door, effectively a family room and housing a table football. Food is a significant part of the offering here and is cooked mostly to order using local produce, but you are also welcome to come in and just have a drink or two. Accommodation is in ensuite double rooms. The bus and rail stations are 10min walk away.
