Another ‘spoons. A fair bit smaller, and very slightly cheaper for food than the Cabot Court Hotel. Beer was fine, staff friendly.
We had a walk up the seafont, and it started pissing down, and this pub came into sight.
Decent beer (ale, but can’t remember what). Decor bit odd: quite dated, but in fairly decent order, and a great view out to sea. Seemed to be highly geared up for food, but we were welcomed for just a drink, and their website (which didn’t appear when I googled) lists entertainment. Not the plushest place I’ve been, but clean and a pleasant place to sit for a while.
This is an actual hotel you can stay in, but the pub still feels like a typical Wetherspoon, but a fairly good one. Beer was decent, as was the food and service, and despite the price hike for the seaside, good value.
On the pier.
A tough one this, but it just about felt publike enough.
No real ale, but decent lager (Kronenbourg) and cider (Thatchers), so they were forgiven. Inside, outside, and semi-outside (sheltered with a cracking view) space. Friendly barman, prices OK, plus it’s a bar on a pier, which is always a good point. Music was present, but tolerable and not over-loud.
