PLEASE NOTE: We are an adults only pub!
Strictly Over 18s - Children are not allowed in the pub or garden


Updated 17/04/2018

We are a truly traditional country ale house,set in the beautiful Luddesdowne Valley.

First opened in 1713, we are a pub in the true sense of the word based around good beer, a convivial atmosphere and friendly conversation.

Free from children, piped muzak and gaming machines, we have replaced them with an adult environment, conversation and traditional pub games

We don't have Wi-Fi and mobile phones are frowned upon. A pub is for social interaction between people  face to face.

After 35 years here,  combination of age and associated declining health means that we have mow reduced our hours to:

Mon -Thursday          4pm to 11.00pm

                                           Friday - Saturday      12 noon - 11.00pm

                                            Sunday                     12 noon -10.30pm


A pub built in the 1700's was never built wth catering to todays expectations in mind.

Space limitations and meagre facilities mean we will never be a restaurant or "Gastropub". For this reason we do not offer formal catering nor a menu, However Hot Cornish Pasties and Sausage rolls are available freshly baked Friday to Sunday from Midday to 9pm alongside a range of traditional bar snacks.

Our oustanding range of expertly kept Real Ales and German lagers is what we're really all about.

We are home to numerous car and motorcycle clubs as well as being  home to Luddesdowne Cricket Club.

 We look forward to the pleasure of your company soon.
