The layout of this pleasant town pub is as described by others, below, though the colour scheme is now pale green paint and plenty of bare wood. The staff were really pleasant, and the atmosphere was relaxing despite the mildly irritating and wholly unnecessary background music. The beer was in excellent condition – as a St Austell house the choice was limited to Tribute, Trelawny and Proper Job, but it was all most enjoyable. I’m very happy to come back here, and I’d include in a crawl, it’s just a shame that opening hours are quite limited during the week.

A pleasant enough and traditional looking pub split over two levels, it’s worth making the short stroll from the city centre to check this out.

Decor wise it’s a bit of a cross between traditional and contemporary with predominantly pale blue paintwork on the walls and deeper blue on the timberwork. As far as I recall from my last visit, there was quite a bit of exposed stonework which I thought added a bit of character, but that is now quite limited with only one or two small sections of exposed walling left. Flooring is dark blue/grey painted boards whilst seating was mostly old wooden church chairs that had been repainted in a vibrant shade of red. A small tiled fire-place was off to one side, although this did not appear to be in use. We didn’t inspect the menu, but did spot a few mince pies on the end of the bar, which seemed an odd choice for mid-January.

Beers on tap were Enigma and Nova from Bristol Beer Factory, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Electric Beer Persuasion. It looked as though there may have been a few more keg options dispensed from taps on the wall behind the bar, although I did not note these. Ciders were well represented with Ashton Press, Honey’s Midford and Golden Pheasant.
