Having risen from the ashes of what was The Chequers Inn, the pub was called the Phoenix until 2017, when it was renamed Wax. It is now a real ale pub with up to 4 ales available in summer, 2 in winter, all generally from Skinner's and St. Austell breweries with Betty Stogs and Tribute favoured. Meals are available 12:00 (when open) until late, with a pizzeria extending to closing time. Sea views from the first floor bar. Winter opening times apply October-Easter.
