Hard to believe this place as the plush South-Western Hotel, which it was back in the seventies, with an old boy playing a grand piano as you walked in the front door. More like something from Dodge City now. Must be yet another candidate for closure and demolition.

Boring, personality-free pub. Unfriendly staff. Probably Bournemouth's worst pub.

Going downhill fast from a low base. A pub to avoid. A blot on the landscape for those arriving in Bournemouth by train.

This popular Bournemouth bar was in the news for all the wrong reasons on 11 July 2007 when the manager was stabbed in the back and received fatal injuries.

Now re-named The Lions Head. No expense spared on the sign eh?
