Reputedly a former hunting lodge, this 18th-century granite building is a small, traditional Cornish Inn, reputedly haunted. The atmosphere in the L-shaped bar is warm and friendly, with a very local character. Traditional brown hues dominate, with partly wood-cladded walls, carpeted floor, and a few local pictures on display. The picturesque riverside beer garden has a boules piste, while the nearby old Portreath tram road offers a delightful coast-to-coast walk through Cornish mining history. Buses to Redruth and Truro stop outside during the day.
