Visited here yesterday lunchtime. We appeared to be the first customers. The pub appears to promote itself as more of a seafood restaurant than a pub. But it did have 2 ales - Dartmoor Jail Ale & Ringwood Best Bitter. The interior looks as if it was originally 2 rooms. But it has been opened up and doubtless some of the character has been lost. Disappointing.

The recession bit, pub was up for sale for a while but they soldiered on. I think it was a valuable lesson. Food prices have come down and quality bar snacks are available all week, not just Monday to Thursday lunchtime only. The friendliness is back (the bloke seems to have gone, maybe he was the reason for the sour moods) Its a nice real pub, if you want cheap booze and shopfitted 'character' go to a McWeatherspoons or a supermarket.

Real ale quality being praised by CAMRA, 'probably the best beer of the day was found direct from a barrel just down the road at the Ship in Distress - Weymouth bitter from the Dorset Brewery Company.'
Not my words, worth a vist if in the area.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with justdarkbeer. This pub always disappoints me. The beer selection is okay but I've had some pretty mediocre pints in there. I wish the owners well but I suspect they are under the burden of a pretty hefty rent.
