Old Ale House, August 1995

An impressive range of beers are available in this very popular pub including brews from the local Skinners brewery, brewed but a few hundred yards away. Many of the ales are served on hand pump while the remainder are served straight from casks racked up behind the bar. A very mixed clientele visit this pub from office workers to tourists and even the odd pub reviewer. Good quality and excellent value food is available at lunchtime and during the early evening (not Sat or Sun) cooked in a little kitchen area in full view of the bar. Some of the meals such as the five spice chicken are cooked on a skillet and are well worth trying.

There's newspapers available to read and lots of bits and bobs on the walls to look at if you're bored. If you like live music they often stage live music. It's a very handy pub to pop into before an evening's entertainment at the Hall for Cornwall which is just around the corner and its also just a stonesthrow from the bus station. For the sports fan, there's table football upstairs. They do allow children, but not near the bar. All in all, a great place to pop into for a great pint, a bite to eat and a good chat. In fact, it's a classic and well worth a look if you're in the area.
