Possibly our favourite pub in Wareham and one of the busiest. Quite dark inside with the beamed low ceiling but it has character. The Purbeck Brewery Fossil Fuel was a no-brainer choice for me when the only other options were Sharp's Atlantic, Pedigree, Abbot Ale and Doom Bar. Pleasingly one of the handpulls was given over to Purbeck Cider's Dorset Dabinett. I'm still to find the pint that beats all others in Wareham but, with numerous CAMRA awards, this pub has a head start. Oh, and they had just watered the pavement hanging baskets which looked pretty and gave a good impression of the place.

Very good pub. It was the only place I stopped in Wareham as I was unfortunately saddled with the old banger (the car that is not the wife) so could only have the one.

I was really glad we did opt for this place though as Wareham is not short of decent pubs however, I felt we made a ReAlly good choice.

Choice of 6 real ales of which I opted for the local brew from the Purbeck brewery called Fossil Fuel. Pint was in tip top condition and served with a smile. There was also complimentary cheese and nuts on the bar which was a nice touch. We also had a Sunday lunch that couldn't be faulted and was fairly reasonably priced.

Pub is cosy and the walls are adorned with some interesting nautical memoribilia and paintings again with a nautical theme.

I hope I can return at some point without the motor so I can get stuck in to the rest of the ale range.

8/10

We had visited the two CAMRA approved pubs in the town and then happened across this place on our way to the local Sainsburys, deciding to try it on the way back. A very nice selection of beers on the pumps and a welcoming, happy barmaid. This place should be in the GBG rather than the Quay in my opinion.

What an excellent pub! I've been to Wareham many times and can't believe I've only just discovered this place. Superb range of ales, good service and what looked like an excellent menu, though we couldn't stay for lunch. I'll be back next time I'm in the area!

An excellent little pub - just of the town centre - which offers a good range of beers included some local brews. In fact we stayed for 2 rounds - the Yeovil Glory being exceptionally good! As with The Kings Arms there is plenty of good banter here and a great atmosphere. Very friendly staff and if we didn't have to catch a train I dare say we would have stopped here all afternoon! Don't miss it.
