Looks a bit gawdy from the outside.
Once inside there is a long oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the bar is on the left side,the floor bare boarded,the seating pew seats and normal tables and chairs.
This is Skinners brewery tap,we had a drink of Skinners Cornish Knocker,which was a very nice drink,the other Skinners beers were Lushingtons,Betty Stoggs,Porthleven and Hops & Glory.
Too quiet and too real ale orientated for our liking.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Ale House

The Camra Kernow pub of the year 2017 is currently covered in scaffolding so is not looking its best from the street, but the dark-wood alehouse interior is just what I was expecting. Low ceiling, dimly lit and doing good business in the early afternoon. Six Skinners real ales on the ten handpumps, with several I had not come across before (e.g. the Penny Come Quick stout, £3.80), plus Abbot as a guest. Also had six draught ciders from a further bank of eight handpumps. Well worth a visit.

This is an old pub with wooden floors and wooden beams. It consists of of a single room with old furniture strewn around. I failed to spot an upstairs but gather it is now used for dining.
It's an Enterprise pub now run by Skinners Brewery and had seven of their beers on. I went for their Seven Hops (£3.70) which was an improvement on any of their other beers I've tried but not a classic. I thought it was rather expensive but that's probably down to Enterprise.
Despite not being a great fan of Skinners I thought this was a pub well worth a visit.
