Yes this is the town tap pub for the Skinners Brewery and you would expect several hand pumps and cask taps on the bar dispensing their ales and beers in good condition. But was also good to see an 18 tap keg wall behind the bar with several craft and cider offerings. But had to go Skinners cask and the Betty Stoggs was superb
Stripped back no frills dark wood interior with a low beamed ceiling and a solid wood floor ( with sawdust sprinkled over it to give that true ale house experience), it’s quite dark inside, but with no TV’s or fruit machines and a laid back sound track playing there is nothing to get in the way of the drinking experience.

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.
