I've been visiting the Charlotte for over a year now. What a pleasant & welcoming change from the bad clientele & reputation the charlotte use to offer! I've had many great evenings down there with fantastic entertainment, a great atmosphere & very friendly staff. I've also eaten there on many occasions - all i can say is great value for money & i can recommend the Sunday lunch - 3 courses for £9.99! Whether i was looking to go there for a roast with my family at lunchtime, a night out with the girls or a just a quiet drink by myself - i would certainly recommend visiting the Charlotte!

In its previous guise, The Royal Charlotte was a, seemingly, rough and ready locals/commuters pub and was a far from appealing sight. Today however, it has more of a café/bar slant with a somewhat more upmarket feel. Interior wise, it is all black and red leather, pine flooring, with a relaxed, chilled, ambience. The clientele within on my recent weekday visit were primarily latte and espresso-sipping housewife-types – far removed from the creed that could be found drinking here before. The staff were both friendly and attentive, though came across more like waitresses than barmaids. Shortly after I had settled down, the landlord made an appearance and it was amusing to watch him tempt the women sat opposite to sample his freshly “home-made” pizza. On the drink front, it was pleasing to see real ales on offer: Brains SA, Spitfire and - a favourite of mine – Ringwood Fortyniner (£2.95). Amongst the usual kegs: Bass Smooth was available for bitter drinkers and draught Bulmer’s for the cider-sippers. An accommodating, though drab beer-patio dominates the front of this bar, though it will satisfy the smokers. To conclude: Whilst, I was impressed with my experience in some ways, I personally couldn’t feel truly relaxed in such a non-pub-like environment. Many here will undoubtedly like the concept and in that sense, perhaps here succeeds. For me though, a passing pint is probably best.
