Contrasting dramatically with the Kings Head next door, an unspoilt drinkers pub. Splendidly, slightly tatty interior with old school black wood brewer's tudor beams and cream walls. The larger room to the left holds a pool table, while live music features in the back where there is an unkempt outdoor area, as well as rows of tables out the front. Best range of beers In the area however, with a number from Rebellion and several others, along with 4 of 5 ciders. Condition of those sampled was good.

A traditional pub that’s not seen much updating since the 1970s and actually is probably better for it. Opened-out inside but still quite homely - an old boys' corner to the right (note the high shelves with jugs, ceramic shire horses and framed butterflys) and raucous but well behaved punters on a pool table to the left. Slight whiff in the air, someone needs to get the damp-proofing out. The bar is directly in front of you on entering and despite the old Courage tin signs by the door and the Rebellion POS, the three ales on the bar were St Austell Proper Job and Tribute, plus Sheps Spitfire. Best selection in the local area by far and also the best drinking – both the PJ and Spitfire went down a treat. Nice and busy on an early Friday evening with a good community feel and a friendly lass behind the bar.
