A poor month for pub visits due to a bout of flu in the middle of the month!
Pub of the Month – The Gurnards Head Hotel, Treen, Cornwall. Treen is basically a small hamlet with a few farmhouses. We were lucky to be staying in one of these farmhouses, and with a 200 yard stroll to this wonderful place, very good food and beer. Definitely gastro food, but also had a nice bar that you could sit in for a pint. It’s about a 1/4 mile stroll from the South West coast path.
