About the Pub

Describing itself as a 'craft beer bar', this family-run outlet is accessed up a narrow staircase next to the Castle Inn; there is also step-free access at the side towards the rear (Ayr Lane, off Fore Street beyond the Union Inn). With wooden floorboards and a single long bar, it offers 4 real ales, three of which change constantly; all are sourced from Cornish breweries. There is also a large (12 page) beer menu covering cask/craft ales plus bottled beers and keg brews. Locally-sourced 'comfort food' is largely chicken-orientated; table booking is available but you are welcome to go in simply for a drink or two. The pub closes during January. The beer is not the cheapest in town, but its quality is arguably worth paying for.
