Rear of the Quayside Inn, July 2005

A pub that my cousin Charles introduced me to a couple of few years ago. It's dead easy to find, just follow the main shopping street towards the docks and just before you leave the shopping area you'll see it on the left. Very reasonable food on offer from doorstep sandwiches upwards at lunchtimes and during every evening (all day during the summer).

It's a sizeable pub with two bars. The upstairs bar is the comfortable lounge with plenty of sofas and armchairs to relax in. My cousin dragged us downstairs and we entered real beer heaven! Bare boards and basic seating are the order of the day with beermats on the walls and books of matches on the ceiling. It can get very crowded and noisy weekend evenings when there's often a live band on. Several Cornish ales from breweries such as Skinners and Sharps are always available as well as a handful of guest beers, The guest beers change regularly. They've also got about 175 different malt whiskies on offer, the most I've ever seen in a pub. If the weather's nice there's loads of picnic tables just outside the lower bar where there's a good view of the docks and across the Carrick Roads. Get there early though as the pub is incredibly popular especially on warm, summer evenings.
