user reviews of the Captains Cabin, Weston Super Mare

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A traditional old pub located at the far end of Weston near to Burnbeck pier. The pub is unusual looking with large, frosted glass windows filling almost the whole front wall. Although it doesn�t look especially big from the outside, it extends back a long way and there is also an outside terrace at the back offering great views across the channel.

It�s a long, single room pub with the front half being put to use as a sports bar with a pool table in the centre of the room, a giant Guinness Jenga game and a projector, although I couldn�t see any sign of the screen. An old ships� wheel converted in to a light fitting was above the pool table. There is dark wood panelling on the lower third of the walls, with a Tudor effect cream plaster and black beams above. The flooring is mostly carpet with some wood boards around the wood panelled bar which continued the nautical theme with some stencilled drawings of ships. There was a shelf up above the bar with all manner of bits and pieces.

At the rear of the pub is what might be described as a dining area, with several tables and chairs as well as menus chalked up on a board and a refrigerated display cabinet that looked to have a number of desserts in. This seemed an odd contrast with the rest of the pub. We didn�t check the menu, but they were advertising steak nights on Thursdays and Cider & Cheese nights on a Friday. Clearly nobody was partaking on a recent Thursday evening visit though, as apart from one other punter who seemed to be a friend of the barmaid, we were the only people in there.

Beers on tap were Courage Best and Rucking Mole, although there was a third hand pump for Bass that appeared to have run out. Ciders were Thatcher�s Gold and Blackthorn.

Great views from the dining area across the bay. Good real ale. Food was decent, though there is an extensive menu & its a bit off pitch outside the tourist season

Unfortunately, I was driving when we visited this pub, so I couldn't sample the beer. However, it seemed nice enough and the real ale selection was fair, but limited. We did eat on the terrace overlooking the small bay at Anchor Head, and the views were good. I had a crab baguette and it had plenty of tasty crab on it. My wife's prawn baguette was also stuffed with prawns. So, we liked the food we ate.

I would like to come back for a beer!
