After a brief stop at the Sun Inn, Hulverstone (not listed on here), we pulled in to the Beach Bar at Freshater Bay. It is part of the Sandpipers Hotel, but doesn't really have much to recommend it. The bar has a modern look with a large area set aside for pool and a big screen showing Sky Sports News dominating the main bar area. The outdoor area including a terrace and a children's sandy play area are badly kept. 2 ales were on - Skinners Keel Over & Greene King Abbot Ale. It seemed fairly popular with locals, but I wouldn't pay a return visit.

Now called "The Beach Bar" and apparently under new management since the lot that did the refurb went bust shortly after last summer. That's what the barmaid told me, anyway...
Child-friendly, faux-leather sofas, fairly comfortable but rather lacking in character. Beer fine, with a varied selection, but not spectacular, and it would have been good to have seen at least one local beer on tap, which wasn't the case during my visit. I don't think they do food, but to be honest it wasn't on my mind during our visit, and I forgot to check! So basically okay, but lacking the character it had before. Date: April.10

Currently developing a taste for the home brewed 'whisky ale' very palatable. Would like to see more microbreweried ales here.

Generic ubiquitous bar. Service ok and ale range acceptable, but don't bother going out of your way for it.

I agree with the last comment. I recently visited for the beer festival. The range of ale and cider was very good although when I first entered the newly refurbished bar I wasn't sure if it was the same place I visited back in March!! Back then, it had a sense of character. Now, despite the service and food and booze being good, it feels like a generic bar that could be anywhere.
Bit of a shame, but its just been done so shall return in the future to see how things develope.
