PUB CLOSED. Now called DYMK. A gay disco pub with very loud music and no real ales.

Paid a visit during a stay in Bournemouth, as they were advertising Sky Sports and wanted to see a match. Unfortunately, once inside we were advised by the barman that the screens had broke, but we thought we'd stay for a drink anyway. Very limited choice. Carling, Fosters and Kronenberg; no ales and Guinness as the saving grace. Tables were all very dirty, had uncollected glasses and other rubbish strewn over them. Needless to say we quickly drank up and found the Goat and Tricycle round the corner, which is in a different league.

The Speckled Hen was stale and horrible on my last visit. Friendly landlords.

Didn't feel comfortable when I first went in. Feels rundown. But was freindly enough once you were in. No one was drinking bitter, so I went for a lager, it was OK.

Although still rough around the edges, the landlord has done a great job trying to make this pub more accessible to a broader range of clients. My guess is that lack of investment is the problem. It's a great pub for real drinkers but I think casual visitors may be put off by it. Still, one of my personal favourites on the west side of Bournemouth.

I was working in Bournmouth so i stayed there for a month, i found it to be a really relaxed atmosphere and the staff are very helpfull, i am looking at taking my wife and kids there for a short break this summer, they are very reasonably priced as well with nice rooms with good facilities including telephones

On my only visit here there was a Pink Floyd video showing on the big screen being avidly watched by people who still looked like they were tripping from the last tab that they dropped in the 60s. One to avoid.
