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.
