Description
We are a small community pub, located in the quaint Village of Golant on the banks of the Stunning Fowey River. We have a traditional pub menu that includes homemade dishes, using local produce. We also have a well stocked bar with regularly changing guest ales. Our patio area overlooking the river is a fantastic place to while away a few hours with a pint and some tasty food.
