A glorious pub with spectacular views and a surprising range of good food - but mostly a refreshing stalwart against the mindless trend toward craft beer. The faint of heart may use caution around the often ribald wit of the regulars.

I love this place - absolutely great view and very nice food, the fish stew is perfect. They also offer salads with an oil & vinegar dressing and other vegetables than peas ...

Stumbled upon this place by accident. A surprisingly good venue just a little bit away from the main centre of Falmouth. Good menu that appears to change daily. Friendly staff and good beer.
