Following an epic to with the caravan, then setting it up, we were ready for a pint. A 20 minute walk and we arrived. Excellent Doom Bar and a very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. We'll try a meal later in the week.

A traditional stone-built pub just off the A39, it consists of a couple of bar areas and outside seating both adjacent to the pub and in a courtyard at the rear, although we did not investigate this. The main bar area to the right has a flagstone floor and a brick fire-place with a wood-burning stove. A plasma was showing the tennis which a couple of locals were watching, but this did not seem too intrusive, and a darts board was down at one end. Various bits and pieces were dotted around the walls such as the obligatory horse brasses, a couple of cricket bats, a model ship and an old spirit bottle stand.

Another bar to the left appeared to be more of a dining area with a carpeted floor and all the tables laid up for food. Some colourful artwork on the walls was available to purchase. We were here on a lunch-time and the menu offered a selection of sandwiches and baguettes as well as a few steaks and some “pub grub” dishes such as Scampi & Chips, Ham Egg & Chips, Ploughman’s, etc., and these were mostly priced around the £8 mark. We went for a Prawn Marie Rose sandwich and a Bacon, Brie and Cranberry baguette, and these were both decent and generous portions with plenty of fillings in, especially the baguette which had a big slice of brie oozing out.

Beers on tap were Otter Bitter, Skinner’s Lushington, Doom Bar and Hop Back Summer Lightning. The solitary cider was Stowford Press. Overall I quite liked this pub and would consider it well worth the short detour off the main road. Alternatively if you’re feeling more energetic, it can be reached from Padstow along the popular Camel Trail.

Well cooked, well presented. Would suggest that you may need to book in high season, we were lucky and just walked in.

An excellent meal! We had Cataplan, a Portuguese fish dish which was better than the one we had in Madera. Friends had lamb and monkfish. Lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.

Visited with friends for Sunday lunch, great value as ever. The evening meals here are good too and they do a fantastic sizzling steak..(I always ask for mine on a plate..!!) The seafood cataplana is superb and always nice wine & cheese
