See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This is a family-friendly and unpretentious two-room town centre pub with open stone walls and low beamed ceilings, warmed in winter by real fires in both bars. Over 300 years old and popular with locals, the pub welcomes children as well as dogs on leads. The beer choice may be reduced to two during the quieter winter months, Proper Job being normally withdrawn until the spring. The 'public' is floored partly in tiles, partly in wood, and extends into a spacious area housing the pool table and further seating. The separate lounge has a flagstone floor, and the beams in the public bar are festooned with banknotes and sheet music, among other artefacts. The garden overlooks an early stage of the River Camel. Home-cooked meals include a selection of fresh fish. A proper locals' pub.
