Captain Jack’s Bar


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.

Literally within sight of our holiday cottage, this was our ‘local’ for a few days.

It’s a traditional backstreet pub- but surprisingly large- the rear is pretty much a restaurant, but other rooms are proper, traditional pub. Staff were all pleasant, decent atmosphere, good beer (3 ales on pulls, plus decent cider on tap). Food was not as good as hoped though, but that was the only disappointment.
