Our View

During its time, this whitewashed, three-storey building has fulfilled many functions, not least as a smugglers' rendezvous – secret tunnel and all. The roof timbers are spars from a wreck (hence the name), while nautical artefacts recall its time as a chandlery. Assorted furnishings, open fires and dressed stone walls provide additional character in the warren of rooms, including the summer-only, ocean-facing seaview bistro. Up to six hand-pulled real ales, including those from the on-site microbrewery, are served in the three fire-warmed bars, as are Rattler Cornish cider and a few English wines. A seasonal bar menu features baked Cornish brie with ciabatta; Cornish mussels cooked in Driftwood beer with fennel; Thai green vegetable curry with basmati rice. Beer festivals are in mid March, early May and at the end of October.

About The area

Discover CORNWALL & ISLES OF SCILLY

Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.

In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
