About the Pub

Tucked away behind St Mary's church, this interesting 14th-century town centre pub was originally built to house the stonemasons who erected the church. This is a cosy beer drinkers' pub where conversation is the main entertainment. The bar sports an array of 8 handpumps offering an ever-changing range of mostly Cornish beers and 2 ciders, although the available selection may be reduced in quieter periods. The separate 'family room', also available for local groups to use, has a series of ancient frescoes uncovered when previous owners stripped away decades of "modernisation"; local historians are trying to assess the age of these paintings. Pub games include chess and other board games. Outside drinking is allowed on the benches in the small courtyard garden to the side, along the front and in the narrow town-centre lane, sheltered partly by the upper floor overhang. Food is limited to a pasty, scotch egg or pork pie with your pint.
