Old pub on the river Tamar by the bridge at Horsebridge. Outside tables, historic original public bar that fortunately hasn't been 'pimped up'. Real ale, real cider, interesting landlord. Well worth a visit, see photos.

A first rate country pub overlooking the higher reaches of the river Tamar. Good quality fresh local food at tables inside and out. Well thought of locally. Well worth an entry.
