See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This attractive free house is a former Coastguard watch house and boathouse, converted to replace a pub called the General Elliott lost during a storm and floods when the sea wall collapsed in 1915. Situated down a steep wooded valley by the Saints' Way path and bordering an isolated beach, it boasts fine panoramic views of St. Austell and Mevagissey Bays. The changing beers increase from perhaps just one in winter to up to four during the summer months; the beers are generally selected from the ranges of Otter, Bath or other SW breweries. The comfortable split-level lounge has exposed stonework, beamed ceilings and open fires with attractive furnishings, and a splendid slate-topped bar. Adjoining is a cosy restaurant where excellent food is served. Children are allowed (with parents) in the saloon bar eating area; well-behaved dogs on leads are permitted it the bar area only. Pub games include shove ha'penny. This pub, close also to the coastal footpath, is well worth finding, summer or winter, and is the perfect place to watch the setting sun.
