|We wanted to watch the football (Euro2012) and as this was the nearest real ale pub to our hotel we gave it a try. Packed solid as you might expect but plenty of TV screens and the landlord let my wife and I sit with him and his French friend so we were OK. Lots of comings and going so it was all a bit fenetic but the staff were great and really quick and friendly and I had a couple of pints of Liberation Ale; one Brain's beer(rev/James)but the Black Sheep had just finished and the next one on was Greene King IPA so we moved on after the footie but we enjoyed the place. I returned another time when it was much quieter and it was fine - St.Austell Tribute was on and again the staff (mostly female) were efficent and polite and quick. I was told that the food was good but we were eating at the hotel that night so didn't try it. It is a busy boistrous pub right on the harbour front but perhaps when Euro2012 is over it will revert to a more passive beer emporium!!|

|The food at the pub was brilliant both for presentation and taste and the chef was very busy but in control . All the staff were really friendly. It gets lively when the football's on, but so does every other pub where ever you go. Would highly recommend for value for money food. Try the specials board!|

|I have not had the pleasure of meeting the landlord, but found the bar staff adequate.|
The pub is worth a visit for a quick drink and a view of the harbour. Real ales on offer at the time of my visit were: Greene King's Ruddles, Hall & Woodhouse's Tanglefoot, and Wells and Young's Bombardier; i.e. beers that one would not generally cross the road for in the UK. I cannot speak for ale quality, as I found the prospect of a gin and tonic less uninviting.

|not great, full of rowdy people throwing stuff around, staff all really young and out of their depth, one to avoid|

|All I can do is echo the comments from 'oldbucksboys'. I found the landlord a disgraceful individual who seems to think of himself as a god-like figure who in reality is probably a very lonely individual really. If you would like to be treated like dirt, come to the ship and crown. If you want to spark out a clown, come to the ship and crown.|
