Overview

At the base of the Burgh Island, opposite Bigbury Beach, is this charming old pub. It dates back to the 16th Century, but is housed in an old cottage dating from 1336 with a dark and mysterious interior. The bars are on the first floor and there is a family room is on the ground floor. If the weather is good, a quiet drink on the terraces is very popular. There are many stories attached to the pub, of smuggling and other skulduggery. Tom Crocker, a notorious villain, is supposed to haunt the place. It is easy to imagine him drinking next to the fire, waiting for the call of a waiting ship to transfer contraband.
