If you are a music lover this is the pub for you. The Vigo Inn stages live music 5 days a week. The pub is closed on monday and tuesdays which is a shame as they would then be staging music seven days a week.
There is a great Blues Jam hosted by established local musician Paul Cook every wednesday which attracts musicians from far and wide, it is unbeleivable how many great musos take part on wednesdays. These nights are even listed in Blues in Britain magazine.
Good selection of beers and ales.
Very limited food menu, which is a shame.
Friendly bar staff.
The Vigo even offers free camping, so if you are in the mood for a heavy session, get that tent up outside.

My friend and I found this pub by accident. We ride motorbikes and pulled in there for a cold beer.
We found the place very welcoming and the bar staff very friendly. Since that night we have been back a few times to se bands. Being an ex landlord myself I am a bit of a pub critic and with the Vigo I have to say there isnt anything bad I can say about the place. The beer is good, the staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. The customers are friendly and the music is great. It needs a bit of colour and imagination on the walls as it is a bit bland but the pub itself perfect. I recomend any one to try it. I and my friends will be in there in the future. We all live miles away but a good pub is worth travelling for.

The correct postal address for the Vigo Inn is FAIRSEAT. I last visited the Vigo many many years ago when it hadn't been decorated since WW2. Frequented by BoB pilots, they would 'walk' WRAF airwomen across the ceiling once they'd put wood ash from the fire on their feet. Those marks were still to be seen then. Closed for three years it's now re-opened and is extremely plain inside. Two long thin bars meet up in the middle and the furnishing is sparse. I saw about six handpump clips and found the Kent Brewery 'Pale' in excellent condition. Live music at weekends I'm told and a pleasant garden at the back. But not in December.

When I saw that it was in the new GBG, I went back for only the second time since The Vigo reopened and was very sadly disappointed.
Of the 3 handpumps only one was on, and I quickly discovered that that one was 'off'. To be honest I can't remember what the beer was, but since there was clearly no alternative, and since I'm a peace loving sort of bloke, I thought I'd drink it, which I proceeded to do, helped down by a packet of Mini Cheddars. Inevitably this attracted the pub dog, and when we'd finished the packet (he let me share about 50/50) he (or she) lay down at my feet and proceeded to fart repeatedly and fruitily.
This used to be my favourite pub(see earlier reviews) bur it isn't any more.
