Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Bodmin, Cornwall, PL31 2DS.

In Crockwell Street, dating from the 18th century and originally the town's Debtors' Prison, this locals' pub is entered direct from the public car park or through a leafy garden containing a stream and tropical plants, presided over by a rather bleached stuffed lion. The single bar, which is subdivided by archways, contains a unique and eclectic collection of antiques and military memorabilia, and there is a comfortable conservatory area. The Lion's Den restaurant upstairs is currently out of use except for occasional functions, although light lunchtime meals are available in the bar. There is a paved garden for families. The changing beers will be from the Heineken approved lists but always includes a Butcombe brew.

We have visited this pub once, seen 6 different beers and tried 1 of them.
