This welcoming old-fashioned locals pub is about 200m uphill from the town-centre. A former sea captain's house, it is 17thC and Grade II listed. There is a cosy snug in front of the bar with an open fire; another seating area with a TV is separated by a passageway with a hatch to the bar. Beers are sourced mostly from local brewers plus three brewed by their own brewery. A popular quiz night is held every Tuesday and there is a wonderful beer garden at the back with heating in the winter. Open 2pm to 11pm Bank Holiday Mondays.
