That's the place.

I've always just thrown a trip line from the slip next to the pub, no problemo. Not eaten there for about 15 years but the Ale is, sorry, was cheaper than the FBI. 6 quid for a pasty?! maybe they were trying to get us used to the pasty tax in advance!

Hopefully it gets a new lease of life and becomes competitive again.

We did this last year. Stayed at helford passage and as other posts say twenty minutes to the mouth of the fal estuary. Pub at helford passage is pretty good but the star of the show was the little village shop at helford which bakes it's own speciality breads of the day. I reckon a picnic with their produce is worth the trip alone. Tie up on the pub slip and it's a two minute walk.

Quite tidal though, we could only get rations a couple of hours either side of high tide unless I broke my main holiday rule which says do it in the boat unless there is absolutely no option and you need to get the car out!!!

The FBI is my local, IMO it knocks the Pandora into a cocked hat (my local years ago). The Pan is now a chronically over-priced tourist joint selling very average pub grub at gastro prices, which is the Milan (lease holder) trademark.

The FBI isn't cheap, but stick to the shellfish and you'll get some high quality nosh. If you're very unlucky, you may get Moller's Mk1 Jnr getting your order completely wrong.

I don't recall the price of a shant being too naughty in the FBI. Tidy pub.

The Ferryboat Inn on the helford is great The Ferryboat Inn |*The Wright Brothers , used to do live music and events during the summer, Port Navas Yacht Club on Port Navas Creek (tidal) Port Navas Yacht Club worth a visit (parents used to own it).
general info: http://helfordriver.net/ Scott's Quay good for mooring and barbie, helford village and shipwrights arm worth a look. Watch for shallow bits on the helford, take a chart.

It's average for this area.

There's now a password for a 10% discount for locals.

Went to the Pan a few weeks ago and things have gone up sharply since the re-build, they weren't cheap before. Just wish the Ferry boat had the convenience of the Pandora's pontoon. Guess that doesn't bother you much having a mooring there and being 5 mins up the road.

Still missing the parents place and my mooring on Loe beach. Much easier than towing the boat home in the dark most times I go out.

Have you got any "in the know" if the Shipwrights will be reopened this summer?
