Close to a large, sandy, surfing beach, this compact food-orientated village pub has an almost 'U'-shaped bar with a slate-floored entrance. The food is complemented by a good range of wines; pensioners' lunches are available Tuesdays. There is a small suntrap rear garden, and more tables at the front garden/car park (parking is limited). No accommodation for under-12s. Real ales are sold but you are generally expected to eat whilst visiting, with all tables marked 'reserved'; the beers shown are representative but may change within the ranges of the same breweries; the selection reduces to two in the quieter months. The Cornish coastal path is 5min walk away, while access to a regular bus service including eves is via a 900m (20min) walk up the hill to Perran Downs.
