Our View

This listed 16th-century coaching inn with its castellated tower sits on one of England’s most stunning coastlines, at the end of a glorious wooded valley where the rivers Jordan and Valency meet. Known affectionately as ‘The Welly’ by both locals and loyal guests, it retains much of its original charm. The traditional Long Bar, complete with minstrels’ gallery, serves a good selection of Cornish ales, ciders, malt whiskies and wines. The kitchen team prepares fresh local produce with a bar menu available lunchtimes and evenings. A seasonal dining menu is also available in the evenings and children have their own menu (some adult main courses can be served in half-size portions). Dogs, walkers and muddy boots are all welcome.

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.
