In the sleepy riverside village of Calstock is this 17th century free house on the bank of the River Tamar in a beautiful location with fantastic views of the viaduct and part of the Tamar Valley Line Rail Ale Trail.
Allegedly once a meeting place for smugglers and highwaymen. Built on a split level, it sits close by the waterfront in the village centre. The pub interior is wood beamed, the main bar is divided into two sections with several drinking areas and is decorated with paintings and artwork from the Calstock locals. There is a selection of several changing local ales, ciders and food available at lunchtime and evenings throughout the year.
