Annie’s Revenge is named after Annie George, who ran the First and Last Inn in Sennen at the height of the smuggling era at the beginning of the 1800s.
She turned on villagers when she was evicted from the pub, but locals got their revenge by drowning her as punishment.
Legend has it Annie haunts the pub to this day – especially the bedroom where she was laid to rest before she was buried.
This weekend the First and Last is hosting a beer festival featuring 15 new ales, including the aptly-named Annie’s Revenge.
There will be live music in a marquee on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (27, 28 & 29 August), with the Cape Singers performing at 7.30pm on Saturday.
The First and Last Inn is one of the most famous pubs in Cornwall, not only because of its location but also its notorious reputation as home to both smugglers and ship wreckers.
The 17th century pub – complete with secret tunnels and underground hideaways where smugglers hid – is now best known for its hospitality, evocative atmosphere and fantastic food.
