See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This 17th-century village inn lies snugly amid the cottages and narrow and hilly cobbled streets of Calstock village centre. Built on 3 levels with beams and varished wood-planked floors throughout, the middle level inside the front door hosts the bar and main drinking area, with separate dining spaces either side. To the left of the bar up a few steps is where you can have a meal and take your dog, whilst to the right and down another level is a separate room which is the main dining area (no dogs allowed). Although mainly food driven, this pub nevertheless welcomes customers who only want a sociable drink or two. The bar is decorated with an eclectic assortment of bric-a-brac, including a collection of stringed musical instruments, and a well-stocked bookshelf; a Harrods teddy bear oversees proceedings from a small chair on the windowsill. The railway station (Tamar Valley Line from Plymouth) is about 15min walk uphill, or you can come by riverboat at times in the summer.
