About the Pub

This ancient Cornish shark fishing local is claimed to be Looe's oldest pub, having been in operation for at least 500 years. There are two separate rooms, one of which houses the pool table; the pub sports low-beamed ceilings and slate/stone floors, and is very cosy in winter and cool in summer. As might be expected from the name and location, there is a nautical theme to the décor throughout. A fourth real ale (often St Austell Proper Job) may appear as a guest but the selection can reduced in winter. Accommodation comprises 5 rooms.The pub is on the Looe Valley Rail Ale Trail.
