Picture-postcard, partly thatched pub by the church lychgate, steeped in smuggling history and close to a safe sandy beach, camping and caravan sites. Although it appears to be centuries old, the pub was once a tearoom, after all the licensed premises in the village closed following a Methodist campaign. Named after the last man-o'-war to be built on the banks of the nearby River Gannel, it claims a long history of smuggling through secret tunnels. The restaurant offers good value food from a varied menu, with Sunday lunches a speciality. Occasional live entertainment at weekends.
