About the Pub

This comfortable thatched 16th-century free house comes with a smuggling history and resident ghost. Up to 4 real ales at any one time may be offered, reducing to 2 during the winter months. The pub is large and rambling, with original oak-beamed ceilings, paved courtyards to front and rear and many cosy corners inside all adding to the olde-world charm of the place. The approach down steep narrow lanes is worth the effort for the beer and excellent meals - there is a restaurant area - and a large family room, while the big open fireplace is a focal point in winter. A regular Ale & Pie festival is held on May Day weekend, and there are also regular jazz or folk evenings, plus quiz and pie nights. Food 12:00-14:30 (15:00 Sat, 16:00 Sun), and evenings 18:00-21:00 (21:30 Fri&Sat). Convenient for adjacent camping and caravan sites, the pub is also accessible daytimes by a bus service from Truro or Newquay if you are prepared to walk the hilly 600m or so from the Cubert road. Note that the pub's opening hours may be subject to seasonal variations.
