I agree with Nick below, a trip to B&Q for some weed killer is still needed. We made the short trip out of town and it was worth the 10 minute walk. 4 beers on - Robinsons Trooper, Sharps Sea Fury, St Austell's Proper Job and Wye Valley Butty Bach. The 3 we tried were very good. Glad to have called in.

Flat-roofed estate pubs are a dying breed, but with nurturing they can survive. The Gauntlet is a decent example of the genre. A midweek lunchtime visit revealed a fair turnout for any pub midweek anywhere these days, and a mix of ages too, mostly, I suspect, residents of the estate. Inside it a typical arrangement around a central bar, with, pleasingly, much banquette seating, a token set of high tables, and the sound turned down. Theres a pleasant outdoor seating area which could do with a dose of pathclear.

It's Enterprise, so two from St Austell, two Robinson's, and the Tribute was spot on. Food is the traditional pub stuff, half the price of the Ember Inn on the main road.

You're unlikely to find yourself here doing a crawl of the town, but it makes a fine job of serving the local community.
