About the Pub

Situated high on the cliff top above Porthtowan, this large, convivial and family-run 17th-century pub was originally opened to slake the thirst of miners from the nearby copper and tin mines, now ofering the same service to locals and tourists alike. In bygone days, pedestrian funeral corteges would stop outside, rest the coffin on the nearby horizontal cross, the Towan Cross, and take refreshment within. The single bar interior is open-plan with several separate drinking and dining areas. The quiet atmosphere is restful with comfortable furnishings and nautical themed d├ęcor throughout. One changing beer is from the Skinner's range, the other from another local brewery. A good quality menu is offered using fresh local produce. Families are made welcome, with the adjoining conservatory doubling as a family room or additional dining space. Traditional pub games plus pool are played, and a large beer garden and ample car park are available. For the hardy, there are also camping facilities. With extensive sea views to enjoy, this pub is the ideal spot to sup a pint or two, but be warned - it can be a bit breezy! Truro-Porthtowan buses stop outside the door.
