Rod & LineChurch Street
Everyone is welcome from 'wellie boots to suits' for good conversation and a local yarn or two in this family-run pub and former coaching inn off the road from Cornwall to Plymouth. The L-shaped bar is open-plan, with wood parquet flooring, a stone open fireplace, and a slate floor at the rear of the pub. The guest beer are generally St Austell HSD or (in summer) Blue Anchor's Spingo Middle; food is available all day. Live musical entertainment on Saturdays ranges through Irish, blues and indy, and an occasional beer festival is held in a marquee in front of the pub. One-time owners Plymouth Breweries held a competition to change the pub name in 1965, as it was then called the Commercial which was deemed rather boring. The winning name pertains to activities on the nearby River Tiddy. The locals play euchre and darts in the pub, as well as taking part in shooting parties and, of course, fishing.
