This delightful 17th-century inn in pretty Port Gaverne overlooks the secluded cove where women once loaded sea-bound ketches with slate from Delabole's great quarry. The slate industry is long gone, but the inn is right on the South West Coastal Path, handy for walkers ready for a thirst-quenching Cornish-brewed Skinner’s Betty Stogs real ale, Rattler cider or a refreshing glass of wine, in the slate-floored, low-beamed bar or small beer garden. Local produce includes plenty of fresh fish; Porthilly mussels; and Port Isaac lobster thermidor. Not everything is from the Atlantic, of course, so look out for braised venison, juniper and ale pie, smoked butter mash and red cabbage; or charcoal-grilled pork T-bone steak with peppercorn sauce. Finish with blueberry and ginger steamed pudding and custard.
