The Tinners Arms


Built of granite in 1271 for masons working on ancient St Senara's church next door, famous for its richly carved Mermaid Chair. Many may welcome the fact that the only pub in the village has no TV, jukebox or fruit machine, nor can a mobile phone signal reach it. Its closeness to the South West Coastal Path almost guarantees that muddy-booted walkers will be found among its clientele, enjoying the timelessness of its stone floors, low ceilings, cushioned settles, winter open fires and the revivifying effect of one of the Cornish real ales or Burrow Hill cider from Somerset. Based on ingredients from local suppliers, the dinner menu offers lightly curried medallions of monkfish; pan-fried lamb's liver and bacon; and garlic-roasted Portobello mushrooms with couscous salad. Sandwiches and light meals are available at lunchtime. Outside is a large terrace with sea views.
