We were met at the door of the boozer by the landlord, drink in his hand who welcomed us with a hello lovelies and we were shown to our table in the gorgeous cornish boozer, the epitomy of rustic charm!
Within minutes of standing at the bar waiting for a pint of tribute I was involved in some local banter with the very friendly locals, I met the fisherman, a farmer and the new barman who seemed to be the butt of the regulars considerable repertoire of jokes that night.
We studied the board for the food specials if the day and chose what I had heard about and come for, crab claws, Mrs Lovett had the crab and avocado salad and the boys shared a huge and gorgeously made spaghetti bolognaise with fresh pasta.
The crab claws and salad arrived within 30 minutes even though we had been forewarned of a "wait" I tucked in the the claws served in an amazing sweet chilli sauce a very generous portion of huge claws with plenty of bread to dip in afters, which was an opportunity I didn't want to miss as the well balanced sweet chilli sauce was a delight I savoured every last drop of.
The crab and avocado salad was gorgeous well balanced with plenty of crab meat to get excited about and lovely ripe avocado.
We were too full up and the boys too tired to sample dessert but there was a good choice on the menu, home made crumble and custard caught my eye.
If I'd have been kidless I could have thought of nothing better than joining the locals at the bar to hear some of the stories that a pub like this thrives on, as one of locals said to me "It's a quiet night tonight, this is the last pub in England and mad things can happen here." I have no doubt that they can.
