About the Pub

This popular community local sits in an isolated beachside location down narrow lanes on the Lizard peninsula. Although now open-plan, the pub's original separate rooms are easily discernible and form distinct drinking and eating areas, furnished with wooden settles, tables and chairs. The bar area with its wood-planked floor and beamed ceiling is festooned with nautical bric-à-brac of all kinds, and overlooked by enormous scale models of local harbour tugs, and a lifeboat. The old stone fireplace has been adapted to house a wood-burning stove for the winter months. Food is a significant part of the offering here, ranging from sandwiches and snacks to full meals (although the kitchen closes during January). There are up to 4 ales offered, frequently changing but with a Bay's brew usually present. There may also be a locally-made cider, pressed in Manaccan from apples grown in Porthallow. The adjacent beach commands good views over Falmouth Bay, and good coast and country walks abound.
