Plan: Overall irregular T-shaped plan. Originally 2 rooms deep to each range,

C19 and then extended at right angles in front of the left-hand side of the original
house circa early C19, leaving a carriageway between the two with a chamber with
studwork walls above the carriageway.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Unaltered elevations since the C19. Original house has 2

Similar windows in original openings at rear and at right-hand end. C19 wing has its
3 original 16-pane horned sashes in its right-hand front wall.
Interior of C18 part has large C18 granite fireplace on the left with probably reused

This Inn has been made famous by its association with the Lieutenant Goldsmith R.N.
who, in 1824 helped by some similarly drunken associates dislodged the Logan Rock (on
Treen Cliff nearby) and was required to replace it. This he achieved by a brilliant
feat of engineering. He then went on to re-erect Lanyon Quoit in Madron parish.
