A very old quirky pub.Staff were very friendly. The portions were very large.If you only have a little tummy don't order a starter &a main meal. Food is very good home grub.

Situated between two popular holiday parks in Hayle, Cornwall. We have a great blend of tourists and locals alike. Children and dogs are welcome. Great beer on offer and very tasty homemade pub grub served everyday.
