Just spent a great week in Mevagissey and this was our favourite place! Great atmosphere, great locals and visitors alike, and a fabulous landlady who makes everyone feel special and valued as a customer. The food and drinks were all good. Can’t fault it!

Stopped here to try and catch a Manchester United game. Unfortunately it wasn’t on, but say a different game. Had a few pints and enjoyed the comrade of the others in the pub. Nice pub - very quaint. Would recommend stopping for a pint.
