The Smugglers Bar at Jamaica Inn in the heart of Bodmin Moor.

Originally a coaching inn, it was built in 1750. Although the bar probably wasn't as obviously named back then this is what went on. It is suggested that a quarter of all the contraband rum and tea coming into Britain came through here. The name Jamaica is likely from the rum.
