There's no real ale - a half of Guinness was £2. Food seems to be pizze - medium size is £6, amd large £8.

This is a scruffy hostel bar in what must once have been a traditional pub. Barrels are combined with tall stools; there are sofas ranged along by the windows with low tables and small stools, and a single normal table with standard chairs. There was a large pull down screen on which some football highlights were being projected.

Clientele comprised young people loafing about on the sofas eating out of paper bags. This is really a bar with nothing to recommend it other than it was open and somewhere to escape from the rain as I was passing. But the youngsters seemed to appreciate it, and good luck to them I say.

A large corner pub, there is no real ale here anymore, I had half a BrewDog Punk IPA at £2.40.
Bare wood floor, some wood panelling on the walls,leather sofas and bar stools, a pool table,Loud dance music, live football and a cheap pizza menu. It's not a place I would choose to return to.

The Dover castle is a large looking corner pub that is just down from Borough tube station.
The pub did'nt look that good from the outside with signs saying dorm beds and hostel,i stayed in places like this in my younger years.
Once inside the pub was not has bad as i thought it would be,there is an oblong shaped room with the bar on the left side,the room is bare boarded,the seating is a few chesterfield settees and three large barrels in the middle with tall stools,there is a pool table to the right.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Doom Bar,this was ok.
There is nothing special about this place.
