Enjoyed my visit to this Good Beer Guide pub last weekend while a beer festival was being held. There was a good selection of well kept beers on stillage in a building in the back garden area. We enjoyed beers from Brains, Tintagel, Triple FFF, Otter, Penpont and Kelham Island.

A detached Georgian styled corner pub and eatery that also does accommodation. It is GBG listed and has a nice patio area at the rear. The pub is in cream render with green painted ashlar endstones and around the sash windows, that alaso have moulded lintels. There is an oriel window above the entrance.

The interior is more than a U-shape around the wooden central bar - in fact it is nearly a central island serving bar and a stone fireplace narrows the main bar room, showing that likely they were once two rooms - there is also a side area where there is a pool table and dart board. To the right on entry, where it opens out, is the more foody area, with tables and chairs. I didn't eat here so can't comment on that. The decor is stone, white and wood panel walls, with a red and beam ceiling and a fairly worn carpet and there are several small fireplaces. There is a massive jug collection that hangs from the ceiling and lots of other fun ephemera too. There is a TV, but this wasn't on at my visit and the background music was general (and my taste!) and at a decent level. The service was friendly as were the several locals in, who chatted merrily to a stranger.

Beer; usual tap stuff with Sharpe's Doombar, Otter Bitter and Skinner's Betty Stoggs on handpull - all were very good.

An excellent traditional pub, with the pub games and ephemera to match - friendly and good beer - i would definitely visit again.

Called in this pub as it features in the 2010 Good Beer Guide. It is a short walk from the main shopping area, and has a local feel to it. Beer from local breweries, and we enjoyed the Skinners Cornish Knocker and Sharps Doom Bar in the very pleasant sun trap of a garden at the back of the pub.
