Good Pub Guide Recommended

Cheerful pub with open fire and woodburner, plenty to look at, several real ales and enjoyable food; fine views

A welcoming landlord and a bustling atmosphere make this country pub a happy place. The bar has farmhouse chairs and stools around scrubbed tables, two big bay windows with cushioned seats, low beams clad with horsebrasses, and flooring that's half parquet and half old quarry tiles. Also, delft shelves lined with china, brass and copper cups, lamps and blow torches (there's even a pitchfork) and walls decorated with hunting prints and photos of the village and surrounding area. Leading off here is a high-ceilinged room with exposed-stone walls hung with maps of local walks (there are many) and wheelback and mate's chairs around tables on bare boards. The cosy snug area is carpeted and has cushioned window seats, a long settle and a high-backed porter's seat, historic photos of the village and the area, and an open log fire. Prescott Hill Climb, Unity Brew House Pekin Pale Ale and a changing guest such as St Austell Proper Job on handpump, 12 wines by the glass andfarm ciders; daily papers, chess, cribbage and Jenga. The view over the lovely steep beechwood valley is terrific, and the seats outside make the most of it. The area was apparently once a hunting ground for Henry VIII.
