Great selection of beers: local brews and known brands. Outdoor seating with a nice view. Never tried food but always patronized during eating hours. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend.

Lovely pub in a splendid, picturesque location. Great atmosphere and friendly service with the best prices we encountered during a mini-cruise from Plymouth to Fowey and Salcombe. We were on the visitors' pontoon and it was a lovely walk along the river to the pub.
