About the Pub

This spacious and airy bistro bar/pub near the Maritime Museum is divided between two levels, the more food-orientated section being up a few steps from pavement level, and a late-night bar, whose entrance is outside, tucked away in the basement. The upstairs room facing the front door offers views across the harbour. The bar here sits beside a food servery, whilst the wooden parquet floor extends via a raised area through to the back of the building where there is a large outside patio for open-air drinking. A simple pagoda structure shelters smokers. Background 'musak' is for the most part unobtrusive, although there is one eye cast towards the town's burgeoning student population, and occasional live entertainment is also a feature. The beer range varies a little and may feature brews from other Cornish breweries. Three ever-changing ciders are kept in boxes at the back of the bar. The food menu is imaginative and reasonably priced, and ranges from nibbles through snacks to full main courses; vegans are well catered for. Downstairs ('Five Degrees Below'), the bar opens at 21:00, sometimes earlier, for late-night drinking and entertainment, and the atmosphere is more that of a small club; it is generally for the later drinking hours. A St Piran's beer festival is held in early March.
