A gorgeous little stone-built locals' pub, with an aged bar full of dark wood with an amazing polished bitumen floor. A most welcome step back into the past and a wonderful cosy feel. Beers from St Austell in fine condition - Cask Marque accredited and occasional Good Beer Guide entry.

This is a proper pub rather than a bar, and we enjoyed the well kept St Austell HSD here. Still has the decor as described below with flags on the ceiling, but it is a comfortable welcoming pub. Worthy of it's inclusion in the 2012 Good Beer Guide.
The above was in July 2012, and I called in today after my walk round Cot Valley and Cape Cornwall for a welcome St Austell HSD which was in excellent condition. Features in the 2014 Good Beer Guide. There was some seating outside at the back partially under a canvas sheet/sail well tied down. Drinking areas contained a piano, and there was a dart board. Ceiling well adorned with flags maps and photos. Signs at the front say no mobiles.

A small detached St Austell pub, with rear patio area. It is a plain, undressed stone built cottage, with a small flight of stone steps that lead to nowhere, which have an anchor perched upon. The antithesis of an Ember Inn. A GBG 2012 pub. The interior has a couple of rooms; with the bar to the left and a snug room to the right - which i didn't see. The main room is an L-shaped one, with a piano and table skittles amongst other things. It is in a dark wallpaper, with wood panel and decoration comes in the form of old local photographs and the flags of the home nations (and Cornwall). There is no food. The service was very good and the clientele friendly locals (some chap started chatting to me on account of my partaking of a MILD - ended-up that he had lived a few doors down form me!) and it was very busy. Beer; usual tap stuff with a very good Ansells MILD and on handpull there were; Dartmoor Best, Proper Job, HSD (decent) and Tribute (decent). A friendly, unpretentious, locals pub, that I could spend all day in, and i didn't get to see enough of it as i got into chatting even before i got served - to me, a must stop-off if passing through.
