Well pretty much as before but alas the real ales are DIRE flatas a pancake and just tasteless water....Trading on the pretentious and name I would say now.. got the same chair drying jobby from owner....In all honesty gone down the pan....needs to concentrate on good ale and food to get the real customers in and not the pretentious office jockeys...

Had a visit a few weeks ago the food coming from the kitchens look good and well presented. Real ales can be hit and miss but service good and good of the owner and staff member to go outside with their cloths drying off the seats and tables after a sudden shower. Beers can be pricey a mixed bag of clientelle.From what i've seen it's either busy or slack, but, a deluge of clients on sunny weekends.

We stayed in a holiday home a few yards from this hotel/pub, September 2010. Called in for a drink one evening just to check it out, ordered a couple of drinks at the bar, was served by a surly barman who could barely pass the time of day. After getting our drinks we were amazed to see there was absolutely nowhere to sit and have a drink. You would have to use the restaurant to get a seat. So my conclusion is , this is not a pub by any stretch of the imagination. After reading previous comments we were expecting great things, but ended up sitting outside on a coldish September night, and as for friendly staff, we never saw any.

This is a great location tucked out of the way at the end of the marina. Itís a great looking old stone built building, similar to what youíd expect in some of the villages around Bath. Inside itís obviously had a makeover, and doesnít have quite the olde worlde charm that you might expect. In fact some parts of it look more like a hotel lounge than a pub.

The main draw for most people though itís likely to be the large patio area which has good views across the channel. Itís obviously gets very busy at times as there were dozens of tables there all crammed in together. Thereís also a small garden on a lower level which is much more secluded and only has a handful of tables. The food seemed popular although we didnít try it ourselves.

Beers on tap were Tribute, Doom Bar, Butcombe, Butcombe Blond and Cheddarís Gorge Best. The ciders were Thatcherís Gold, Blackthorn and Magners.
