Green ParrotSt. George's Road
Tucked away 50m off the road across a large car park (look behind the Tywarnhale), this fully-refurbished pub was re-opened towards the end of 2010 as a new branch of J D Wetherspoons; unusually for them, it retains its old name as the story behind it is so original. Largely to the standard JDW format, it is a former gentlemen's rsidence and is long, linear and spacious with a marble-top bar, and an upstairs bar provides for extra capacity during the summer or for private functions. The pub offers the usual two or three standard beers offered by the JDW chain, plus a varying choice of guest brews, often from Cornish micro-breweries. Cider is Weston's Old Rosie. The pub is a short level walk to the local golden sandy beaches and surfing; car parking is pay-and-display for this reason, but you can get a refund as a customer at the bar.
