Visited on the afternoon of Monday 25/04/16 and pleasantly surprised at how busy this small back street local was ! Up a steep set of steps from the main drag the OA is a small two roomed boozer and all of the heart and soul was packed into the front room and around the bar where we found one stool between us at the end. Decor was old school, pictures on the wall, pub carpet, old looking tables and chairs but fine overall. Really friendly locals and bar maid, free cheese and biscuits were laid on on the bar. 3 cask lines inlcuding May Day from Padstow - in great nick and the only time I saw one of their beers on cask during my pub crawl in Falmouth. Overall the banter we had with the locals made this place a great pit stop and the fact it was small and relatively crowded compared to other pubs on a Monday afternoon added to the atmosphere. Worth a look in for the guest cask.

A fairly basic but comfortable locals’ pub up a very steep (but mercifully short) hill from the main street, well back from the harbour front. There are three hand pumps and one gravity tap competing for space with a collection of Good Beer Guides on the bar. The décor is quite simple 1970s style with various local artefacts on the walls – some photos of old Falmouth, more recent pictures of rowing boats (or gigs, as I believe they are called), a truncated oar bearing the pub’s name and half models of the gigs “Fury”, “Idas” and “Energy”. There are also some photos of Ann Glanville, a local rowing legend and hero from the nineteenth century and, bizarrely, some examples of what looks like 1920s erotica. To continue the sporting theme there’s also a cricket bat and a dart board surrounded by chunky nautical rope. It’s difficult to imagine the dart board ever being used, though - I hadn’t noticed it was there until I almost tripped over the oche to get to our table, which was right in front of it.
