This is a great little hidden gem. Only just off the sea front up a little lane and well worth finding it out. A real pub with 4 real ales on and kept very well.
The landlord was very friendly and welcoming as was the locals.
Would definately go again :)

This is a decent back street local that has been refurbished since my last visit which considering my only criticism previously would have been it's slightly down at heel appearance, this is now one of the best pubs in Clevedon without a doubt. Despite being only one road back from the sea front, the fact that it's not facing the beach means that it remains undiscovered by many of the area's day trippers who gravitate towards the bigger and brasher pubs that are somewhat more prominent.

The pub sits in amongst terraced houses in a quiet residential street and consists of two rooms. The main bar at the front has wood flooring, along with wood panelling on the right hand side along with a sturdy wooden bar counter. To the left is a large stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. The seating is mostly conventional tables and chairs with some black vinyl bench seating in front of the large window.

There is much nautical memorabilia around which is I suppose fitting given the pub's location even though it's not reflected in it's actual name. A ship's wheel, bell and part of a mast were on one wall, and there were several nautical pictures around as well as the obligatory display of different types of knot. The pub's notice board of community events was titled The Ship's Log. There is another, large open room down a few steps at the rear although we did not investigate this.

Beers on tap were Black Sheep Bitter, Doom Bar, Butcombe and London Pride. There was a good choice of ciders on with a trio from Thatcher's - Dry, Gold and Traditional, as well as Weston's Old Rosie.
