See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This pleasant side-street Victorian local dates from 1869 and is a five minute walk up East Hill from the town centre. It has a "U" shaped bar, with an open wood fireplace at one end and serves two regular real ales plus a guest. The car park holds about 15 vehicles and there is a large paved beer garden with a covered heated smoking area. Quiet at lunchtimes but often busy in evenings with live sports on TV and darts, pool and crib teams. Opposite is a graveyard which contains the unmarked paupers' grave of famed steam pioneer Richard Trevithick, a rough location given by a plaque on the north wall.
