Lunchtime very busy inside and out on a hot summer's day. A mix of drinkers and diners scattered throughout this huge pub. Bar staff not as prepared for us as the previous two.

The pub is found in Bolventor, Cornwall, PL15 7TS.

High on windswept Bodmin Moor, this old coaching inn has become immortalised by the Daphne du Maurier novel and is heavily themed on those lines. A large rambling building, it nevertheless has a cosy front bar along more traditional lines, which is furnished with oak settles and tables, and a huge granite fireplace burning enormous logs in winter. The beamed ceilings are festooned with hanging copper kettles and jugs, and a large collection of UK and foreign banknotes. There is an adjacent snug. The inn has a separate restaurant. There is a museum and gift shop complex too.

We have visited this pub once, seen 3 different beers and tried 1 of them.
