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

The Rifle Volunteer was built as a mine captain's house in around 1800, then converted to a coaching inn during the mid-19th century; it now plays host to the village post office four times a week. The main bar has been opened out to accommodate a modern conservatory, popular with diners for the view out over the garden. A separate public bar caters for more dedicated drinkers and hosts the pool table and dartboard. There is an outside play area for the children. The changing beer is regularly varied and usually from a Cornish or west Devon brewery. Meals are cooked using locally-sourced ingredients. The Rifle supports the local football team and otherl community groups. The pub offers panoramic views across the Tamar Valley and is in good walking country. It is also on the Tamar Valley Rail Ale Trail - the railway station is 1.5 km away along the A390.
