1 mile out of Torpoint on the A374 follow the signs for St John. The pub is in the centre of the village and has a large car park to the side.
Do be aware that there is 1/2 mile of very narrow lanes on the approach.
The pub has been well supported by the local community and is going from strength to strength since the reopening.
Since taking on the pub the most has been made of the 3/4 acre site with landscaping and the formation of the campsite in the lower portion. There is a large patio at the front and ample seating in the garden.
The site is in a conservation area with a Site of Special Scientific Interest at St Johns Lake only 2 minutes walk away, where many sea and wading birds can be seen.
They serve Real Ales which change every week and can be anything from a 3.5% ‘quaffing’ bitter to a luxurious 5.6% chocolate Porter.
Bass on draught as a permanent feature and also Theakstons’ Mild.
There are 2 premium lagers from Czech and also 3 ciders on tap.
All the ales, lagers and ciders are £3 pint
Food is only served on a friday evening from 5-9pm when an outside caterer sets up a flying kitchen in the marquee serving fish and chips, steak, sausages, and anything else he feels like on the night.
There is no TV, wifi or duke box, but they do have music events from time to time in the large marquee.
