A popular locals' local in the heart of this ancient market town, this is a 17th century coaching inn whose name reflects the town's political loyalties after the Civil War - the battle of Stamford Hill took place near here in 1643. The pub has many original features including two simply-furnished bars with many original features, including well worn Delabole slate flagstone and wooden floors. During renovation of the large open fireplace in the lounge, a small bread oven was exposed. The two guest beers usually comprise one from a Cornish brewery and one from Devon (often Forge); the real ale choice is unusual in the local area. Draught cider is usually available in summer only. The pub supports darts teams, and four letting rooms are available, one of which is ensuite. Good disabled access. The pub is a 'must' for visitors to Bude.
