Pop in here every now and again to see what selection of beer the pub has on offer as it changes weekly, never disappointed with the choice available. Great staff who can suggest a beer for all tastes, fantastic ale and not forgetting the amazing location on Falmouth's Custom House Quay.

If you like a pub and a great choice of real ales, then look no further. After frequenting Falmouth for many years, this pub has never changed! In a good way. Ales always changing, very competitively priced and a warm welcome. Love it! 👍

The best fish and chips are not but a few yards away. Right on the quay, and the local dept store. Staff v friendly and knowledgeable about their products. Remember to lose... More

Visited here on a Monday evening whilst down in Cornwall for work. An excellent choice of real ales and the staff knew their stuff and what to recommend. A very pleasant atmosphere in the pub as Monday is their folk night. I left reasonably early but it started to get busier as it got a bit later. Will definitely visit... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere of this traditional pub. The beer choice and standard was excellent. We joined in with ordering our fish and chips from upstairs, great. Really nice experience. I hope we will be back

The Front on customs house quay. If you like real ale, no gimmicks, then visit The Front because that's what you'll get. There's always 8 to 10 real ales and then the ciders as well. All kept in top condition by Matt the land lord and his brilliant staff. You can always try before ordering so no wastage. There's no... More

Recently had a weekend away in Falmouth and discovered this lovely bar that you could take your own food into. There's a great range of ales to choose from along with a very friendly feel. While we were there (every evening of our stay) there was some great live blues music for our entertainment.
