Rude aggressive inflexible manager and mediocre food.
I've never written a review before but I am compelled after a terrible time here.
We waited over an hour and 10 mins (it didn't seem that busy) and despite asking after 45 mins and being told it's on its way, then you are next (we weren't) it took another 25 mins for the food to come.
My fish pie was sloppy full of a frozen fix mix, but piping hot. The chops were awful.
The nice bar staff apologised (my children were on the verge of tears) but they couldn't even organise bread in under 15 mins that came after the long awaited food. So the bar staff offered free drinks but we asked ti have ice cream for the 2 children instead...but on asking the manager refused, he says no one complains about the wait and it was just tough luck as the pies take a long time. On saying if we knew that we wouldn't have ordered pies (for 2 out of a party of 6) - or they should put a note on the menu. He wouldn't agree and was very rude and aggressive - recommend you avoid this place until there is a new management team.

On the quayside in Poole, it is a very long deep pub with the bar on the left hand side. There is a good selection of Hall and Woodhouse beers. Seating and décor is very basic with bare wooden floors and plain wooden chairs. Not a pub for comfort. Beer is rather expensive.

One of several pubs on The Quay that make the most of the pleasant views and provide some outside seating, this is perhaps somewhat more of a traditional pub than some of it’s compatriots and is a pleasant enough place to stop for a pint.

It’s a single room bar with dark wood flooring, a few oak beams on parts of the ceiling and wood cladding elsewhere. A couple of old beer barrels had been pressed in to use as tables for you to rest your pint on and there were various nautically themed pictures on the wall such as boats and fish. Some wood and glass partitions on the right separated the area in to booths with leatherette bench seating around a table. A small raised area at the rear had wood panelling on the walls.

The menu looked to concentrate mainly on fish dishes, and price wise these appeared to be a step up from your usual pub grub with most of the main courses somewhere in the £12 - £15 range. We didn’t eat though, so can’t comment on the quality. Staff seemed quite switched on and were often seen wiping down tables when they were vacated.

Beers on tap were all from the Hall & Woodhouse stable with their Tanglefoot, Badger and Hopping Hare. The solitary cider was Stowford Press.

The Poole waterfront has a remarkable selection of pubs and this is perhaps the best of them, with a full range of Badger beers. Look out for the live music; this may be your nest chance to hear bossa nova this side of Rio!
