Clearly not a pub in summer evenings - totally food orientated. Forget getting a table unless you've booked

It is thought to be named after an incident where the landlord brought up a bucket of blood from the building's well, as a murdered smuggler had been dropped there .

Still the best in the area, back in Hayle after a few years away, the HSD is always tops, very well kept, great home cooked food and a lovely pint of rattler cider, the landlord seems to have gone on a charm offensive since I first went in 2001 when his father still ran it, when he was a bit on the gruff side, been a family run business for generations

A St Austell house.

A very old building with a great deal of history, and has the very low ceilings to prove it!
One bar operation which sits in the middle of the ground floor with two seating areas either side, both of which can be used for having a drink or eating. Two open fires lit at time of visit with the usual array of St Austell beers on tap, The proper job was on fine form the 'house beer' the 'bucket of blood' is clearly St Austell's HSD re-badged.

Warm welcome from the barmaid with the clientele a mix of locals and visitors.

The only downside is that the kitchen, which is off the bar, doesn't seem to have any form of air extraction unit, the only ventilation being a small window. The net result of this is that the bar area fills up with the smell of deep fat frying, (you you can actually see the fumes in the air). I imagine that if you spent the entire evening in the pub you would come out smelling like a chip.

I've always found this to be the best in the area, great olde world place, great ales HSD, I've not been for a couple of years, but it's been run by the same family for years and they've kept the standard consistently high, the food is far and away the best in the area in my opinion but be prepared to wait at busy times as it's all freshly prepared
