Packed and popular pub with lots of people eating. Took drinks outside and up to the lookout to watch activity in the harbour. Food looked great.

This ancient pub has the most beguiling atmosphere and a small terrace outside with magnificent views. The food is good and the experience very relaxing.

Sorry only just saw your message. Parking not good in Porthleven there is a small 7-11 store by the port bridge where you can park which means a less than five minute stroll. You might get lucky along the port side too... More
