Saw this pub online/FB before our annual Easter trip to Cornwall. What a great little place, specialising in craft ales/ciders etc from around the globe & local (you won't find Tetley's here!) Can't comment on the landlord as he wasn't there on our 2 visits,...More

I was keen to visit this pub as I'd heard of its extensive range of beer and I'm always keen to support micropubs. The pub itself was quirky and the range of beer didn't disappoint. However, who I assume to be the landlord was more...More

Popped in here after finding it online before coming on holiday. We can't comment on previous experience with the landlord as he was not present at the time when we stopped by. They have a great selection of spirits and craft beers which is exactly...More

The landlord is confrontational, ignorant , and loves too stare at you stay away after been in there, just walking past his pub makes me angry

Have been in here a few times the past couple of years. Always a good place to get a decent pint - especially if you're into the Craft beer scene. Nothing out of the ordinary on tap, but some great, reliable standards that you'd find...More

Hidden gem. Situated just off the main street, this pub is well worth a visit. Great selection of craft and real ales, friendly locals and welcoming staff. Quite quirky with the ceiling covered in paintings of all shapes and sizes.
