Ate here Sunday (5 of us) chose the Roast Pork Belly which was paltry in size with two slices of pork, no crackling, peas were like bullets and the roast potatoes tasted like they had been deep fried.

No apple sauce available and I asked for French mustard and got english

We chose to have puddings and ordered two sticky toffee and 3 spotted dick which arrived with cold custard.

We sent it back at which the waitress seemed surprised! Very poor, i Know its cheap but I would rather spend a tenner in the Toby and get a decent roast.

Needless to say no tip was left. I have heard the manageress does not take kindly to complaints!

Badly in need of a refurb, bar area is dark and dingy.

its a great location and potentialy a great pub but sadly the poor food and mediocre service lets it down.I also agree with many of the reviewers here I was left wasiting at the bar while to"regulars" were served before me,while I was quite blatantly being ignored.

This pub has amazing potential which is under used. The location is superb, the beer is good, the food tolerable, but the place is let down by its general grubbiness and the apalling decor in varying shades of mud, sludge and beige. I advise a coat of paint and a good dusting session every few days. surprisingly, the loos were very clean and fragrant ... looked better than the kitchen, in fact. C'mon guys, pull yer socks up and turn this pub into the great place it should be!

Poor service if you aren't a "regular". Horrible, ludicrously overpriced food that looks like microwavable ready meals, but cooked in an oven and in smaller portions. Moody school-leavers as bar staff. Not a good place to go, but there are far worse places in Southbourne.
