Russell InnWest Street
Only 25 metres from the quay, this locals' pub is tucked up a side street in a snug hillside village at the mouth of the River Fowey. Locals come here to play euchre and darts. Home-cooked meals are available daily, 12:00-14:30 (14:00 Sun) and 18:00-20:30, and served in a warm, friendly atmosphere. There is background music, and occasional karaoke for entertainment. A St Austell seasonal brew may also appear at times. Rich in history, the pub was opened in 1833 by Christopher Slade and Jane Salt, who began a dynasty of Cornish boat builders; Jane and their son Thomas were the inspiration for Daphne du Maurier's "Loving Spirit".
