Stayed in one of the upstairs rooms very reasonably priced compared to hotels just up the road. Friendly manageress and amazing view out of the window.

A great pub with an excellent atmosphere, good music and fantastic crab sandwiches. Friendly and helpful staff. It's rare to find good all round pubs like this nowadays. Definitely worth a visit when your on the barbican.

We stop here for a meal before heading to the ferry port for the overnight to Roscoff. A lovely, old fashioned pub with friendly staff and good food. Easy to park on the road outside.
