remains utter dross with half of the 8 handpumps given up to the Doom Bar-Ruddles-Abbott triangle of hell and two more to ciders. the place is one uninspiring square room with 'areas' separated by beams. still it's pub heaven compared with everything else in Newquay. outdoor drinking available with glorious seaside views of the tatty Berties nightclub and a noisy main road.

This is another Cornish JDW that appears to have disputed disabled access. According to What Pub access is via an alley off Springfield Road behind the pub.
The front stairs are not on the same scale as their Bodmin outlet. Inside it's a wide rectangular room with the bar at the rear. It seemed quite bright inside compared to some of their outlets. It was fairly quiet on my November Thursday afternoon visit. There are just eight hand pumps which had one available soon, two unused, the two GK beers, Tintagel Merlin's Muddle & Pendragon and Atlas Nimbus. I went for a Cornish cider (£2.75) rather than the beers.
I thought this place was OK but let down by a fairly average beer choice.

This Wetherspoons has a few steps to get into it, and a notice saying disabled to ring for assistance. I was told that it has been converted from what used to be Brunels pub. It was busy as you would expect a town centre Wetherspoon outlet, but the beer range was very disappointing with only Greene King Abbot and Ruddles, and Caledonian Deuchers IPA plus one guest, Skinners Ginger Tosser so we didn’t stay.
