This was my first Dorset place rating during my 2015 UK shires tour. Parking was challenging, but there is a pay car park just past the pub. Large interior with a more restaurant-like portion up a few stairs, and nice comfy seats around the downstairs bar. Staff was friendly and generous with the samples. 11 beer engines, but 5 had kicked or the lines were being cleaned. Beers they did have were in good condition. Worth the short drive to Bournemouth.

Very nice pub with the best selection of cask ales in the city (10 taps) and 3 keg lagers and 1 keg stout (but fortunately it is not Guinness).

An oasis in a desert of mediocrity. A good selection of ten mainly Wadworth hand pulls and several guests. Friendly staff who readily offer a taste before you order. Lots of room and not too crowded. Beers that I tasted we're served at the right temperature and well kept. Well worth a visit.

The best ’Real Ale’ Pub in Bournemouth by a country mile. 10 Different handpulls, 6 from Wadworths and 4 guests. There may have been some lagers but I didn’t notice (wasn’t looking). Used this place twice over a long weekend, pleasant staff, good quality beers and a clean, tidy bar, no matter where you sat. In the main bar area they have large wooden boards on the wall naming each beer on cask, with tasting notes, all in big letters, so the old regulars can read what is on. Remember Bournemouth is a huge retirement settlement, even if it now has a Uni too. Average price was £3.00 a pint, which we thought, a bit heavy, but it is ’Darn Sarf’ and it was just after the Budget of April 2009. Wetherspoons were having an International beer fest with everything at £1.79 a pint at the same time (two outlets in Bournemouth), so we ended up in those later. Sports screens in the raised part of the pub, nothing in the main area (good). Large smoking area outside for those that must, looked a sun trap too. Goat Curry was on the menu, handy for any Kenyans visiting I suppose, but we had something different. I had a Chicken and Mushroom Pie, the wife Ham and Eggs, both very good, if a bit pricey. Well worth finding.

2010-07. Visited on a Friday afternoon last July, we snuck away from various wedding pre-plans for an hour or so and wound up here. Great old wooden bar feel, this was close to our hotel and offered quite a few interesting brews on tap and cask. Not super busy (though could see it picking up more in the evening), the service was friendly and efficient. They actually left the bar to go in the back for a while as we were the only patrons at first. Didn’t eat here. Casks were in pretty good shape. Would seek it out if in the area again.

2010-07. Nice little spot, comfortable English pub. Good number of cask ales on tap but most are not overly interesting. Wadworth line and a decent number of guest taps. Barman is friendly. We stopped in for a few half pints. I liked the large menu board with slats for the beer names. Food menu sounded pretty good but we did not eat. Well worth a stop if you are in town but for us it was more for a few decent regional ticks rather than anything especially good. Prices seemed cheap to us, probably about average for the UK.

The best place to have some Real Ales in Bournemouth. Ten Real Ales on tap. Five from Wadworth Brewery. 15 minutes walk from City Centre. (19.10.2008).

I had a great evening in this place, whilst on holiday in the beer wasteland of Bournemouth. 11 real ales were on, with helpful descriptions of each on the wall. Some good southern brews and a friendly pub atmosphere make this well worht seeking out.
