Large, family-friendly 15th century coaching inn, with good views over the valley to the St. Germans River. The interior is traditional, with low-beamed ceilings and a wealth of brass and copper ornaments. The guest beer is always from a Cornish brewery. Food uses locally-sourced produce; the separate restaurant (which hosts an old record player) can also be uses as a function room. Quiz night is Tuesday (over winter), while live music appears Fridays and most Saturdays. The inn also hosts local shooting parties and golf societies. The name refers to the resident ghost (gook) of a local smuggler, Silas Finney, who was hung and thrown down the well (now under the kitchen) when his gang returned from a spell of transportation after he turned king's evidence against them.
