So wanted to come in. I knew about the electric fence. I was unsure what the rules were about Tier 2 people getting a drink in Tier 1.

I've been in cornwall a week now and its different in every place. My favourite was in St Ives, where the barman was allowing people to sit outside with food if you were in Tier 2 but turning people away for drinks only if from Tier 2. The couple after us were from Wales. Who were let in without a problem for drinks - despite no alcohol being sold in any welsh pub.

Its hilarious but this landlord was enforcing the rules as he saw fit - as its wet led, so its only for Tier 1 people. He's gone to lengths to explain this to the media in Russia and China... as I found out when looking at Twitter indignantly on my return to our holiday cottage.

I've been here before, so I knew it was a prime location for real ale and music evenings.

I'll try again when I have been vaccinated :-)

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.
