After a long walk in the Cornish countryside, a place to meet friends and family or simply to relax . . .

Under new ownership since February 2015, ‘The Engine’ retains a traditional feel with comfy leather sofas round the wood burning stove and relics of its mining and agricultural past around the bar. The bar also has a pool table and dartboard. The pub is child friendly with a wooden pirate ship play area to the rear and dogs are also welcomed.


The landlord and landlady, Adrian and Karen offer a range of lagers, ciders, wines and local Cornish Ales, as well as regular guest ales from breweries from further afield. In 2015 we were awarded Cask Marque accreditation for our ales and have a 5 star hygiene rating for our kitchen
