The Admiral Benbow

The “Admiral Benbow”, Penzance, Cornwall, U.K.

Admiral Benbow is remembered in pubs scattered throughout the English speaking world, and in literature in the opening scene of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. The Admiral Benbow Inn, Penzance, is one of the most interesting.

And, as you will learn from the very comprehensive Brave Benbow site, there are at least a half-dozen pubs and inns in the UK that commemerate the great sailor and sea-fighter.  The Admiral is also the topic of a very stirring eponymous song, of which my favorite interpretation was done by Paul Clayton.
