The Crown Inn


In a moorland village above a tributary of the Fowey River is this former longhouse, with characteristic thick stone walls, low beams, granite and slate floors, open fires and an unusual bread oven. Much of the present building dates from the 12th century, when it housed the stonemasons constructing the nearby church. The pub has been extensively but sympathetically restored over the years; at one point the work uncovered a deep well, now covered by glass, under the porch. With the sea only a few miles away, expect a menu offering plenty of fresh fish and seafood, as well as other local produce. A popular main course is Cornish ale-battered fish with chips, crushed peas and home-made tartare sauce. At lunchtime in warm weather, enjoy a fresh Fowey crab sandwich or a proper Cornish Pasty and a pint of Skinner's Betty Stogs in the lovely garden.
