Calstock pub covers bar area in grass for St Patrick's Day
A Calstock pub is having its entire bar area covered in grass in honour of St Patrick's Day.
Senior chef at the Boot Inn Joe O'Reilly said: "I know it sounds a bit whacky but we thought it would be a bit of fun for all of our customers."
As well as having the floor laid to lawn, Celtic harpist Fionnuala Perry will be playing Irish music throughout the celebrations, which take place this Sunday.
She said: "It will certainly be a first for me. I thought they were joking when they asked me if I'd mind playing on a lawn."

HCT Turf Company of Exeter, which supplied the specialist netted lawn, is sponsoring the event.
Vernon Hockley, a partner at the firm, said: "We thought it was hilarious when we were first approached. Who knows, it might actually catch on."
Mr O'Reilly said: "It should be a bit of a laugh for our usual Sunday lunch crowd and we expect a fair few popping in for a subsidised pint of Dublin Guinness."
