Very traditional interior ,well worn with character and characters everywhere.It has a boozer vibe and was lively,the low ceiling adding to the charm.There were a lot of barrels on stillage to one side,which the barmaid said would be disappearing (I assumed for good) but the one remaining ale from this display (Whitstable Pale) was being offered at a knockdown £2.50 to shift it.I had been warned and it came out flat as a pancake.The handpumped options were Old Golden Hen and Shepherd Neame Brilliant which didn't set the pulse racing.However it may be worth keeping an eye on the ale choice in here going forward,there appeared some commitment to improving the availablity and range.
A proper quayside drinking hole,worth a crawl visit.

An 18th Century harbour pub with a basic, traditional feel to it. Touristy in the Summer, but out of seasons it is more friendly and traditional, though it is also chaotic and brilliant in equal measure. A few seats outside, but the focus is definitely the hospitality and welcoming atmosphere within. The single knock-through bar has an area of stillage at the front, and the bar counter in the centre. The floor is bare-boarded. There are a few old barrels with piles of peanuts on them, but we weren't really sure why. The pub is dog-friendly, darts is a popular pastime ans they hold quiz nights on Thursdays. Although there were 6 barrels on the stillage, only Whitstable IPA was available there, plus Old Golden Hen on draft. There was a selection of 9 ciders as well. A definite for a town crawl, and a good place to hide away for a while.

Decent sort of pub in the centre of the very touristy quay-side. Jam-packed with tourists during the season but far nicer out of season (where isn't?) and a completely different attitude from the staff. Usually two ales on which are invariably well kept. Above average (out of season) otherwise there are plenty of other less-packed pubs in Weymouth.
