Tamar Inn, Clastock

The Tamar Inn is situated right by the river in the centre of Calstock. It’s close to the quayside moorings so the pub can suddenly get very busy when the trip boats up from Plymouth arrive.

The older exterior gives way to a more open modern feel inside – including a restaurant area. There is some outside seating on the road at the front and in a small garden area at the side for sunnier days. The pub is child friendly.

Real ales are available. On my last visit there were a couple of Sharp’s beer available including (of course) Doom Bar which tasted very good.

The meals are good – tasty food with large portions. NB: for people thinking of arriving on the boat trips, the pub will not serve cooked meals to those arriving on the boat as the the boats only tend to moor at Calstock for an hour before returning to Plymouth. An alternative approach which I can recommend is to do the boat trip one way and the train the other way. The timings vary because of the tides but this approach will enable you to enjoy a relaxed meal at the pub and spend a bit of time in Calstock too.

Calstock has one other pub – The Boot – but I’ve not been there.

    Thanks for letting me know Paul. I’ve updated the link to your website.

    I’m not sure when I’ll be in the area again, but I’ll certainly try to drop in when I am.

    The unfriendliest pub in the universe. Staff must have a degree in unfriendliness they are so good at it. Dirty looks, ignoring you, serving regulars over you, even though I live in the village, just a really rubbish experience. Work hard for my money and not giving it to these goons. Feel sorry for the owners they are actually nice people. Have had major problems before with this establishment, my own fault for going back and giving it a second chance but there you go.
