The Old Albion Inn in Crantock is around 400 years old and oozes history.

Beneath one of the fireplaces in the pub's lounge is the entrance to a smuggler's tunnel which runs under the village (although now blocked for safety reasons). The inn's fireplaces are proper Cornish too, both the main ones have built in pasty ovens!

The name of the pub is thought to have come from one of the ships, probably a schooner, built in the nearby Gannel shipyard.
