This pub has had a bit of a chequered history recently, being closed and re-opened on numerous occasions, including one spell where it was shut for two years. So it’s good to see it finally re-open again, and hopefully this time it will be more successful.

It’s a good size, single room bar, with a traditional, curved wooden bar counter on the right which includes some stained glass windows above the bar counter which is an unusual feature. At the back there is a raised area used for bands, and on the night we visited tribute band The Twurzels were due to play. There is also a regular jazz evening on Tuesdays. Next to the stage is an old piano, although whether this gets any use I’m not sure.

The décor is a little gloomy with a predominance of brown paintwork and brown curtains, although I understand there are plans afoot to change this. There are a few illuminated black and white photographs along one wall and a fruit machine next to the bar.

The landlady seemed friendly and was clearly trying to do her best to build business back up. After long spells of closure, inevitable regulars have all gone elsewhere. The two beers on tap were both from Arbor Ales with their Brigstow and Hunny Beer. Ciders were better represented with Thatcher’s Gold, Blackthorn and Thatcher’s Traditional dispensed directly from a barrel on the end of the bar.

Now open again.
Popped in on a sunday lunchtime whilst walking the floating harbour. Very quiet when I was in so cannot give a real impression of what this is like now it is open again.
Decent enough small one bar pub with a wooden interior.
Three hand pumps on the bar but only two going and the Doombar was OK but I cant say it was the best I've ever had.

This used to be a very busy Marstons house with regular live music.

The irony is that the Mardyke across the road was always the less appealing of the two and yet that now flourishes!
