Tree InnFore Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Reopened in June 2017 after sensitive refurbishment, this is a friendly and intriguing 16th-century coaching inn with two slate-flagged bars including a plain public bar, and a comfortable saloon which proudly displays a cannonball from the Civil War in a glass showcase. The bars are only accessible separately via the yard. There is also a function room in the old skittle alley to the rear. The pub prides itself on specialising in locally-sourced real ales and ciders as well as food, and plans occasional beer and cider festivals to celebrate the fact. The Galleon restaurant, set around the old stable yard, is constructed in part with beams taken from local shipwrecks; a pop-up bar is installed here to cater for special events and festivals. Anthony Payne, the last Cornish giant, was born here in 1610 - a hole had to be cut in the bedroom floor to get him out through the bar when he died.
