Called in to this lovely traditional old English pub for a quick drink. Very friendly locals and staff. Good selection of ales and beers and wines . Don't think there is a food option though. No jukebox or fruit machines just how a pub should be.

This was a lovely 500 year old pub in a central position in Looe. The room was spacious, clean and warm, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was generous with plenty of choice, including a full english vegetarian option

Had the advantage of visiting during the Looe Literary Festival so enjoyed a talk about smuggling on the Cornish coastline and a bit of a sing along! The place was busy and they serve a good range of local ales and ciders.

This is a medieval inn just off the harbour in West Looe. It is wide with many cosy rooms and a log fire. On Tuesdays and Thursdays they hold Folk Nights. Most of the people were local people and they were very welcoming to tourists. The atmosphere was great. Other nights may be quieter but I'd recommend these 2 nights.

As the oldest pub in Looe (500yrs) the pub was everything that we would expect, low beamed ceilings with a warm welcome. At breakfast the room was transformed with bright white table clothes and a really good choice of breakfast foods. Check-in was really straight forward with the chap behind the bar being very accommodating. We stayed in room 2...

A good, quirky little pub, full of character. Room small but adequate and warm. Very good breakfast served at the table. Frequent happenings downstairs like local folk musicians, poets, readers etc. Was winter when we stayed and Looe was a little miserable but a pleasant weekend stay nonetheless. A few parking places, with more pay and display, on the quay.

Positives: The room was quite comfortable but could do with decorating. The breakfast was nice and the lady in the breakfast room, the landlords wife, was absolutely lovely. Not so good: We walked in the bar on our first night and it was as though someone had shot the piano player! All went silent and my wife and I felt...

This traditional seafarers ale-house celebrates 500 years this year and it is a wonderful little place. Warm and cozy, good range of ales and the staff are friendly and helpful. Everything you need from a 'Proper' pub.
