Its a greene king outlet so best avoided

One of two pubs immediately next to each other just off the Quay, this is a single room U-shape pub although differing decor styles serve to divide up the internal space somewhat.

The more traditional pub area is across the front, and this has plenty of beams on the ceiling, some exposed brick walls and a brick fireplace with a wood burning stove although the lack of any visible flue suggested that it was perhaps more decorative than functional. To the left was a raised area with dark wood panelling on the walls and a couple of church pews arranged end on. There were a couple of plasma screens on each side showing a news channel, although the volume was off and so this was not intrusive.

To the rear is a slightly less attractive area with maroon paintwork on the upper part of the walls and wood panelling down below that has been painted in a rusty brown shade that looks suspiciously like the stuff that I’ve used on my garden shed. A number of lifeboat pictures were on the walls whilst the flooring was a mixture of carpet, wooden boards and tiling. Outside seating consists of a courtyard and some decking at the rear.

The food menu was extensive and divided in to several different sections. Most of the mains were somewhere around the £8 mark, although there was also a fixed price menu with one course for £5.95 and a few “daily specials” although the actual date on the menu was a few days previously. My Chilli Beef Burritos with soured cream and cheese was a tasty enough dish although the few very tired leaves of lettuce that came with it were both superfluous and past their best.

Beers on tap were Greene King IPA, Abbott Ale, Old Speckled Hen and something called Landlord’s Choice Smugglers Ale which I suspect is a generic brew from the GK stable. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.

It looks promising from the outside but the clientele looked and sounded oikish to me. Still, when there are no handpumps apart from Greene King, what do you expect?

Promising pub, decent pint of Ruddles. May be worth another visit if in Poole.
