See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Do not be put off by the sign above the door - 'restaurant' - inside this is a spacious, busy open-plan pub and hotel with open beams, distinct drinking areas and a separate dining room although bar meals are available; the pub offers a good range of food, which is an important part of the entire operation. There are several handpumps dispensing the St. Austell ales (up to 5 in summer), although not all may be on offer at any one time (especially in winter) and the range may occasionally be varied. A small patio to the rear where smokers can go overlooks St Marys harbour, and a new balcony with glass wind-breaks affords panoramic views over the harbour. A good pub for beer and conversation, and family-friendly although children are not encouraged after 2100.
