The Village Pub: This local is not a business - it's an event. Sure it is made by an excellent selection of real beers, by a decent choice of well cooked, unpretentious pub grub, a top notch setting by the river etc. etc. However, the main ingredients in this mix is the customers themselves - the committee meeting at one end of the single room whilst other regulars chat around the open fire. In the summer months for those who would wish to sit and contemplate the value of life whilst watching black, long necked cormorants skim the waters of the Fowey as they race up river to dive for mullet and sea trout.
What more could you want other than the occasional meet with a famous rock band calling in for a pint between sessions at the nearby Sawmills Studio, or the joy of listening to the landlord displaying his talent on the guitar whilst accompanying one or two other local residents sharing their vocal and instrumental skills, (and there's no charge for the cabaret).
