Not sure if this should be under nightlife or restaurant...
The Tavi is a traditional, slighlty old man pub, but still very nice. It's a lot more laid back than the other pubs in Gunnislake.
Tuesday nights: pub quiz
Thursday nights: live music.
Very good British gastro-pub type food: wild boar, fresh local fish, very good steaks, that kind of thing.
One fab thing I had there was scallops and king prawns in garlic butter. Very very good.
Dress Code: None

Gunnislake holds what sounds like quite a lively local festival every year at the end of July/beginning of August. This usually commences on the Wednesday and culminates on the first Saturday of August.
I haven't actually been here when it is happening, because my only day off in the summer is Monday, but chatting to Gill, the landlady in the Buccaneer pub, (who is one of the organisers) it comes across as the villages main annual event.
There's art exhibitions, competitions, a street fair, lots of live music (much of which is in the local pubs) and also a very competitive scarecrow competition.
For full details (and some great pics) visit the website.

Visiting the old mining structures;
- Head towards the Gunnislake Cricket Ground, but follow the footpath (ive only encountered two people ever on the footpath) this path follows the Tamar upstream. After a mile and a half you'll be able to see old mine buildings to your right. (Next to the river) They have not been closed off, so you can get up close. Also, keep your eyes peeled on the footpath to the left of some old mining tunnels. One of which is 3/4 mile long.
