Aqualung . left this review about The Longboat

This is a long hotel bar with a low ceiling, a wooden floor with rugs and a number of screens showing the World Cup.
The five hand pumps had two Tributes, Teignworthy Beachcomber, Cornish Crown One Hop Grain and Bath Gem. I went for the Tribute (£3.95) which was in good nick.
Although I found it uninspiring and expensive, it's better than some places in Penzance.

Due to a friends train running late we popped in here for a quick half, and found good quality ale by Caledonian with a pump clip showing the beer was the Cornish name for Longboat. Staff friendly, but even though it was into the evening time, it was very quiet for such a large pub.

Roger Button left this review about Longboat Hotel

This is probably the largest pub in town with an expanded interior that seems to stretch all the way to Lands End. The low ceilings throughout give it a bit of a claustrophobic feel and its open plan set upmeans there is little in the way of intimacy. Wood feateres predominantly throughout which does make for a fairly old world feel although I would hazard a guess that the interior is a fairly modern refurbishment. Beers are mainly Greene King with 3 pumps bearing Speckled Hen clips, and 1 each of Ruddles County and Doom Bar (which was unavailable despite the clip not being reversed). I didn't recall it being particularly expensive and the quality was fine to me. There are multiple screens, mainly for sport and a separate pool room at the rear. Various forms of entertainment from the good to the bad are advertised on a board outside. A separate dining room is also located at the side in the front of the pub. Before we visited we had walked past a few times and it was never even close to being busy which measna distinct lack of atmosphere in such a vast place which is a shame because it really isn't such a bad place and certainly worth popping in for a couple of pints.
