Last pub of the night for us in Cornwall was the Cobweb, which is an imposing building at the bottom of the town, opposite the public car park. It has two bars with flagstone floors. One has a pool table. Ales were Tintagel Cornwall's Pride, Harbour Special & Merlin's Muddle & St Austell Tribute. Ciders are Healeys Cornish Rattler & Addlestones.

This is the nearest pub to the car park. It's a converted warehouse which used to store (and unofficially sell) alcohol - getting its "Cobweb" name from the state it was in when it was officially converted into a bar in 1947. It's an OK place. Fairly practical and laid back, with a reasonable and mostly successful attempt at creating an atmosphere. There is a useful outdoor space, and three indoor areas - the first being fairly plain and canteen like, the middle room being sparse, but fairly pub like, and the third being fairly cellar like, and the one that perhaps has the most atmosphere.

Local beers sold, and meals offered at restricted times (check first). It is the better of the two pubs in lower Boscastle, though the beers we had (from the Tintagel brewery) were not in top condition.

This is one of my favourite pubs in the entire UK. It's a proper community pub and a real ale drinkers heaven. But above all it has character in abundance. 10/10.

Couldn't agree at all with the previous comment 9 of us turned up out of the blue, and nothing was too much trouble, we even had two dogs with us, beer, wine and cider enjoyed by all, food by far the best in Boscastle, staff friendly and professional would recommend this pub to anyone visiting Boscastle or surrounding area well worth the visit and cant wait to pop in again

I am in a quandary over this place. On one hand the pub itself is quirky, dark and full of bric-a-brac and has a reasonable atmosphere. The beers are well kept and not ridiculously priced. I had Tintagel brewery's Harbour Special and very nice it was too. On the other hand my family decided to eat and the presentation and quality of the grub was awful, particularly as it cost us over fifty pounds. On the whole I'd say if its food your after make the trek up the hill to the Napoleon Inn but if you just want a snifter this place is okay.
