Bridge on WoolThe Platt
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This spacious, comfortable and lively town centre pub is named after the medieval 15th-century bridge over the now silted-up harbour, and reflects the one-time importance of sheep to the town - the pub name in Cornish (Pons War Gwlan) still appears on the outside. The light and airy single bar interior has several drinking spaces, including a raised area that affords a view of the nearby street; an impressive curved bar counter dominates the room. An enclosed courtyard beer garden at the rear affords access to an adjacent (but limited-space) car park. Four large TV screens display major sporting events, and live music is performed every Saturday & Sunday night. Three ensuite letting rooms make this pub a good base for exploring the local area. Buses stop almost outside the door.
