Bradley McAnulty left this review about Barking Cat Alehouse

Probably one of my favourite pubs that I've ever been to.

Fantastic selection of ales/craft beers along with real ciders and spirits that aren't mainstream and found in most pubs.

Have never had any trouble in the pub in the years that I have been going (back to the original smugglers run) and have found it one of the few pubs where you can have a pleasant conversation with anyone at the pub.

Backroom with darts and pool table (50p a game on the pool table!) and a jukebox.

Please disregard any reviews of the previous pub (Smugglers Run). We are a new pub (The Barking Cat Alehouse) with 8 ales on hand pull, 6 ciders on hand pull and 10 craft keg.
Still a function room for meetings (also a pool table/dart boards)
I'm not going to rate my own pub - that's down to you guys n girls :)

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Smuggler's Run

Too big to be called a micro-pub, this elongated shop conversion has a narrow rectangular bar with a rear games room of almost equal size. Limited amount of furniture and basic decor. As a Bournemouth Brewing house, there were two of its beers on plus four guests in a variety of styles (e.g. Moonshine Night Watch Porter, £3.60) from six of eight handpumps.
