About the Pub

This fine old 18th-century pub in the heart of Port Isaac has several drinking areas and a small balcony overlooking the harbour. Its layout of 3 small rooms, drinking corridor and old fittings earn it recognition on CAMRA's Regional Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors. It also has slightly uneven bare-boarded floors. The games room downstairs was originally 'the Bloody Bones' locals' bar, which boasts a smugglers' tunnel down to a causeway on the beach. A small flagstoned courtyard at the rear offers alfresco drinking.
