Disgusted with the treatment we received when trying to come in for a drink and listen to the music on a Friday night. 4 ladies, all 60+ told by the bouncer, Jake, we could not come in because we had come off a boat. We...More

I have to say I’m absolutely shocked with the admission policy at the very average pub on Poole quay. We were in a party of 50 people that had attended a 25th wedding anniversary on a boat a Poole quay. After the trip we decided...More

Me, my wife and my daughter had lunch. I had a chicken burger with cheese, bacon and mushroom with chips which was okay. The salad in a burger doesnt really go though, perhaps on the side or not at all. My wifes ploughman seemed okay,...More

We went in for a drink and received confrontational bar staff with aggressive attitude. This idea to be a friendly place to visit but not sure I’ll visit again

This place rocks on the motorcycle night. Handy for the quay and the chip shop. They do food but plan early for a meal if there is a band on. As they stop food at 1900.

This used to be a great pub, but sadly no more. It's rather grubby and unwelcoming theses days, which is very sad. It's in need of a major refurbishment.

Walked in to the pub and it did not feel very welcoming at all. On the plus side there was free pool which helped with one star. Could be a cracking pub with more training
