Newly opened in June 2016, this tiny bar in an old stone-walled cellar is Cornwall's first micro-pub. Difficult to find, and easy to miss being up a side-alley off the harbourside (close to the Lifeboat Inn), it is well worth seeking out. The wood-topped bar has a few bar stools to sit on, and there are two tables with chairs; total capacity would be around 20-25 people at one time. It offers up to 6 real ales from micro-breweries, of which half would normally be from Cornwall and half from outside the county. There are also up to 4 ciders available, especially in busy periods. No food is available. Note: the pub may close earlier than Sunday evening if the beer runs out. 'Winter' opening times extend from October to the following June.
