About the Pub

This town centre locals' pub has only a small single bar and drinking area at street level, but being built on a steep hillside, it is surprisingly roomy towards the rear, having several split levels to play with. Another drinking area is on the next level down, which also hosts a large TV screen, then beyond and down the steps outside there is a sheltered patio, a converted former swimming pool now clad in wooden planking, and beyond that again a garden. At the back it has an extensive multi-level patio, much of it covered to offer protection from the elements. Formerly the Three Tuns, St Austell Brewery sold it as a free house in 2011 and it now offers the permanent beer listed plus up to two guest brews on handpump.
