Well the question has been answered.

The local family who opened the pub with such fanfare.....and then shut it again 3 months later....have applied for planning permission to turn the upper floors into flats and the bar area 'retail units'.

Perhaps this was the intention all along, anyway, it seems unlikely ever to be a licensed premises again.

St Austell brewery did indeed sell the pub.

The pub was bought from the brewery by a local family who wished to keep it as a pub, running it as a free house. New landlords were appointed and the pub re-opened with lots of publicity about beer, cider, pub events including live music and a new food menu.....hurrah.

However 3 months later the pub is closed once more with no indication as to whether it is closed for good or is a temporary

This St Austell brewery pub is now closed and has a For Sale sign up.

Has been done out since my last visit about a year ago. The pool table has been moved from the back to the side room - far more sensible - and an eating area created at the rear. Not much furniture in the main bar area - I do hate "comfy" sofas in pubs. Has a DJ area so I assume that discos/music is a regular feature.

St Austell Tinners, Tribute and proper Job available. The Tinners was excellent and good value at 2.45 (unlike the 2.80 down the road in The Dolphin), The lady behind the bar was friendly and efficient.

I'd certainly visit again.
