About the Pub

This 17th-century cottage-style community pub high on the edge of the wild Penwith moorland was once the counthouse for nearby Giew mine, whose engine house still stands. Surprisingly roomy inside and once boasting 4 separate bars, it is now more open-plan but with distinct drinking areas - comfy seating to the left of the entrance, with a small dining room down some steps behind, and the pool table tucked in to the right. The main bar is partly constructed out of an old chest of drawers, and mining artefacts and assorted brasses decorate the room. Usually quieter during the week, the pub is much busier at weekends with a lively local trade. Live entertainment includes folk music and song on Sunday afternoons once a month. Families and dogs are made welcome. The beer garden to the rear is a patio area, with great views across the moors. Closing times in the evening ('late') may be flexible according to local demand. Five letting rooms are available. The guest ale appears during the summer months.
