St. Just's oldest inn, built of granite with a slate roof, and reputedly the lodging of John Wesley. The beamed and atmospheric main bar is full of interest, depicting a long association with tin mining and the sea. Flags of the Celtic nations adorn the beamed ceilings, and pictures with a mining theme the walls. Floors are variously slate-flagged or bitumen covered. The pub is the centre of the local folk music scene; evening singalongs are frequent and Monday is 'fiddly-dee night'. Traditional pub games also thrive. A cosy snuggery has been opened out to provide a family area. The beer range may vary according to the time of year with an extra brew or two from St Austell appearing seasonally; no food is served. In this drinkers' pub, most of the entertainment is essentially conversation - the locals are always ready to spin a yarn or two!
