Medium-sized pub with a pleasant U-shaped bar and adjacent dining area, in centre of village which is a bit of a walk from Lizard Point. Popular with tourists, walkers and locals, with tables outside and accommodation available. Usual beers from St Austell in fair condition.

This is a nice Georgian styled pub, eatery and hotel, called the Lizard Hotel in the 70s and Hill's Hotel in 1908 (i love old maps). It carries a plaque in recognition that it was the terminus of the Helston - Lizard bus service, the first bus service operated by a railway company (the GWR) in 1903. THe accommodation is in a separate building behind the pub and there is a patio area. The pub remains unchanged in design since the Edwardian period, except that it is now in pink render (I can feel those Victorian gents wince). Interesting features inclue a double gabble end and a a nice front neo-classic porch. The interior is difficult to comment on as it was late when i popped in and most of what appeared to be a U-shaped room was in darkness; so all i could see was the bar area, which is in white and wood panel. There is a brick fireplace and lots of maritime pictures on the walls. There was no TV that i saw and no music was on. The service was really friendly and the locals at the bar chatty. Beer; usual tap stuff with Korev (St Austell lager) and St Austell Tribute, Proper Job, HSD and Dartmoor on handpull. I tried the Dartmoor, which was fine. A really enjoyable experience - just wish i had had longer and gone in on a Monday when the folk band are on.

Popped in here for a drink while on a walk in the Lizard area, and enjoyed a St Austell Proper Job. It is a large establishment and did feel like a hotel bar being quiet. Seating outside if only the weather had been warmer. On the edge of the Green, so will get popular around mealtimes.
