Email this pub Just 100yards from the main A38 into Cornwall in the village of Tideford, 6 miles from the Tamar Bridge, you'll find the Rod & Line.

The pub is renowned throughout the area for the condition of its beers and the quality of the food -particularly its crab dishes, king prawns, scallops and fillet steaks... and for its warm welcome to locals & visitors alike.

In summer you can drink and dine outside under the large Mediterranean parasols.

In winter there is always a huge log fire. And at Christmas the pub becomes the local Santa's Grotto (see pics).

If you like a theme pub where everything matches and has been designed by some corporate team, then forget the Rod. This is a proper Cornish pub with the ambience of yesteryear but most definitely in the 21st century.

AND, a year ahead of government proposals, the Rod became a NON-SMOKING pub in August 2006. However, there is a customer-friendly covered area right outside the door for those (including the landlord & landlady!) who still do.

Across the road from the pub there is a large children's play area and a large public car park.
