Pandora Inn- Mylor Bridge

This is a thatched inn dating from the 13th century and has survived flooding and in March 2011 a major fire. The inn was completely renovated and reopened in March 2012. As well as the usual assorted tables inside and in the dining area upstairs , there are tables outside at the waters edge- and then there is the floating pontoon. At right angles to the inn and projecting out into Carrick Roads just about where it becomes Restronguet Creek the pontoon has at least a dozen tables to have a nosh or a slurp in truley amazing suroundings( just try and time your visit for around high tide for best effect ) . You could even arrive by boat as there are mooring along the pontoon for boats- ( can you be done for drunk in charge of a boat? ). There is even a book called Pandora Inn based in the area , it is an espionage story based between the 1930s and the 1980s. On top of all that I have said so far, if you look over on the left hand side of the picture you can see a gold post box set in the wall- this is in honour of Ben Ainslie and his Gold Medal in one of sailing classes of the 2012 Olympics. I noted and was pleased to note that the plaque informing one of this honour is written in text and in braille.
