About the Pub

In an idyllic creekside position overlooking its own beach and the Helford river, this large open-plan pub has a large single bar room with a small, more intimate annexe for eating or drinking attached. The walls and beamed ceilings are festooned with an eclectic mix of nautical bric-a-brac including a whole wooden ship's mast, while the mainly wooden furniture is supplemented with comfortable leather-style sofas. The bar itself is unusual in being set into three stone arches. The patio has good views over the water. There may be up to 4 real ales from the St Austell range depending on seasonal demand, but the HSD appears only in the summer months. Families are welcome, or children can play on the nearby beach. Cold meals are available in the afternoon after 15:00, and occasional barbecues are organised in summer. Expect to wait for food in summer, however: the pub is often extremely busy. The pub is convenient for the nearby Trebah and Glendurgan gardens. The 35 bus leaves from the top of the hill, about 15 minutes steep walk, or you can take the foot-ferry to Helford.
