Regular beers: Sharp's Doom Bar

This lively, family-friendly two-bar 17th-century pub was allegedly once a meeting place for smugglers and highwaymen. Built on a split level, it sits close by the waterfront in the village centre. Stone-built in a mixture of granite, slate and other materials, the pub interior is beamed overhead whilst underfoot is a mix of floorboards and slate flagstones. The front bar is divided into several distinct drinking areas and decorated with a few framed paintings, a small bookshelf providing an additional service for the locals. The rear bar room is more open and lighter, opening on to the rear slate-flagged courtyard for outside drinking. Several (3 - 5) changing beers, usually from Cornwall or Devon, are on offer (the range reduces in winter); the hand-pumped draught cider is normally Old Rosie. Food is available lunchtimes and evening, and all day at weekends and during the summer months. Live entertainment appears on weekend evenings. Beware the step down on leaving the front door!
