This is a traditional 16th-century pub with low beamed ceilings (horse brasses attached) and dark walls, in a narrow street near the quay. There is a single L-shaped bar room, carpeted near the door with the remainder of the floor slate-flagged. A small outside drinking patio on two levels at the rear is reached via a steep, narrow and slightly demanding climb of many steps, which affords a high-level view over the rooftops of the town - and mind your head as you return to the bar! Pilchard buyers came here at one time to taste the wares from 3 pilchard processing plants on the nearby quay.
