This is a brilliant and very traditional back street corner pub which since January has become a privately owned free house. The interior is one L shaped room with the L shaped wooden bar counter in the back right corner opposite the entrance, the right hand wall is exposed rustic stone with a small basic fire place in the middle, other walls are half wood panel with red patterned fabric bench seating and the floor is fully carpeted, the left wall has a very large three paned mirror, the back left wall has a large flat screen TV which was off during this visit and the back right wall round the corner of the L shaped room from the bar counter has a second small fire place with a dart board above, on the walls were several old photos and prints. In the back left corner is a door that leads out to a small enclosed court yard with a couple of tables and an outside men's toilet block which was quite open to the elements and a little cold on this particular day.

Regular ales are currently St Austell Dartmoor Best Bitter and any beer from the local Hunters Brewery with up to four changing guest beers which on this occasion were Skinners Betty Stogs, Teignworthy Old Moggie, Otter Bitter and Bays Topsail. I tried the Dartmoor and Hunters Half Bore and found them to be very good in my opinion, the Best Bitter is £2 a pint which is very reasonable these days. Nice to see a free house supporting lots of local breweries especially Hunters which is hard to come by.

An excellent traditional pub with an emphasis on real ales, but I did spy some cobs on the back of the bar. It is a little off the tourists beaten track, I became aware of this place while on holiday due to an article in the South Devon CAMRA branches news letter which I had picked up in another pub. I'm really glad that I made the effort to climb the hill and walk along the narrow back streets with no foot paths to find this place and I would definitely make the effort again, an actual hidden gem.
