See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
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. Live entertainment appears on weekend evenings; quiz night is the first Wednesday of each month. Beware the step down on leaving the front door!
