Old village pub near the dunes of Hayle Towans whose name is linked to a gory legend involving a well (see the notice near the door for details). The words 'Familiarity breeds contempt' written on one of the very low beams serves as a warning rather than a proverb! Tastefully refurbished to render the pub structure safe, the single bar room houses the pool table at one end, and a cosy drinking or eating area at the other with settles and an old fireplace; a painted mural depicting St. Ives Bay overlooks the pool table. The beer choice can vary, with a fourth beer from St Austell (normally Tribute) appearing in summer. The kitchen is closed in winter between November and Easter.
