me and the wife went to the wheels festival at bournemouth .after a long walk we thought we would pop into the neptune for coffee.
what a mistake. I ordered to coffees and the barman uttered £3.92.
not a please or thank you when I held out the money he was to busy talking to another member of staff. eventually he took the money and wandered off to get the coffees,he came back and just plonked the coffees on the counter and wandered off . I had to ask another member of staff if they had spoons,sugar,etc .I was told they were at the other end of the bar. why he could not have said this i do not know. we found a table and sat down, right by our table two youngsters were playfighting on the floor, when one stood up he was about 16 years old the other was about seven years old. This just shows how standards a slipping. will not be using THE NEPTUNE AGAIN.

It's dirty with rough clientele and rude staff but once you're sat down you can generally ignore that and look at the waves.
On a recent visit though we were given plastic glasses (at 1pm on a rainy day) we asked for glass but were told the manager had told them to serve plastic, they could get fined/shut down if glasses kept being found on the beach etc, I asked if the plastic is for good now and a server woman came out of nowhere and said it will be plastic all throughout the summer(!).
When we sat down we realised everyone else in the place had glass and they were serving in glass. I went up to the bar and asked why this was and the same server grumpily told me the manager had just been over and changed his mind. I asked for 2 glasses and she poured my drink into a filthy glass and demanded I bring the other plastic one up for her to do herself. I asked her to just give me a glass and she rolled her eyes really stroppily (for a middle aged woman!) said 'fine!' and sent me away with another dirty glass.
My partner and I are both in our 20's and were reasonably well dressed. Being clearly discriminated against then repeatedly lied to really was a bit much.
Why is it places with the best potential are often the worst?

Is this pub still here? Quite frankly it's a joke.

Ordered a salad for 8, received what was quite obviously a side salad, bar staff oblivious when I pointed out that my salad was in fact slightly less than half the size of the salad ‘garnish’ that came with their sandwich that cost 4.50. Have been a few times because of its brilliant location but have been disappointed every time. Pleasant enough staff but they all just seem so dim, no one appears to be managing the place. Anyone managing such a potentially wonderful establishment in a location like its got so poorly is clearly not the brightest of sparks. Poor food, poor beer, slow staff, drunk aggressive regulars.
