Regular beers: Sharp's Original, St Austell Tribute

Named after a naval flag ('Crew on Board - Ready to Sail') which flies outside, this is a welcoming little family-run free house on the coastal path, reached by a flight of steps at the end of the quay. There are up to 5 real ales in summer; the pub tends to support 'local' breweries, which usually includes one from Devon such as Bay's or Hanlon's. You can also sample beers with 'tasting paddles' - 4 quarter pints of each beer. On two levels, it has wooden floors, low beams and interesting hidden corners, while it boasts the only sea view from a pub in town; the family room is upstairs. Eclectic d├ęcor includes work by local artists, foreign breweriana and unusual souvenirs. Food is from a varied menu of home-cooked dishes. Live music Saturday night and Sunday lunchtimes. The pub is popular with visitors, locals, fishermen and dogs - ask for a biscuit!
