Close to the King Harry Ferry, parts of this lovely old pub date from the 15th century and rumour has it that the fireplace was used by smugglers to burn contraband. Settle down in the cosy low-beamed bar and enjoy typical dishes like braised beef and red wine stew, and pan-fried hake. In summer, head for the garden or patio with a glass of St Austell Proper Job.
