King's Arms5 Market Square
Fine old granite pub catering for locals and visitors alike, in a typical tin-mining area, was converted to an inn from three 14th century cottages. The flagstoned entrance leads to a rambling interior with low, wood-beamed ceilings. Pillars holding up the ceiling make parts of the main bar area a bit of a squeeze when busy. Outside drinking is on a patio. The town festival in mid-July is marked by a special brew at the pub, Lafrowda Gold, which appears on the third handpump, unused in winter except for other seasonal brews. Food is available 1200-1400 and 1800-2030, perhaps later in summer. The pub is home to the local Cape Singers - be prepared for an impromptu sing-song.
