2nd GBG Tick and pub of the evening.

Location isn't much to shout about - surrounded by 1960's council flat properties, but the pub is charming inside.

Standout attraction was the landlady who came out an engaged in a lengthy chat with three strangers to make them feel welcome.

Beer was in good nick, from Summerskills.

Close to marina & estuary but also just inside a housing estate area making it a strange location, an end of street local. On a number of split levels due to the hill it a bizarre, dark atmosphere, with part using dimmed lighting and French boudoir furniture.

3 real ales but slightly warm

A traditional looking pub at the end of a dead end residential street, it’s not likely to get much in the way of passing trade, but is nonetheless only a couple of minutes walk from the popular harbour front area and is well worth taking the trouble to track down.

Internally it’s an L-shaped pub split over a couple of levels, with the long leg of the “L” to the right perhaps being a more recent extension which looked to be primarily used for dining. Décor wise it’s fairly traditional with a wood strip floor in the main bar and carpet elsewhere. Walling is a mixture of exposed stone as well as painted plasterwork in various shades including deep blue and deep red. A cosy old snug was up a couple of steps to the left, although first impressions were that it was quite dark, with little lighting other than the candles on the tables. This had an old fire-place stacked full of logs, a shelf running around the top of the wall with a collection of miniature whisky bottles and a few beer mats tacked to the wall, although not the quantity that you see in many pubs. Other signs of a proper pub included a selection of board games on a shelf, as well as a darts board and small TV.

The menu offered a decent selection of pub grub dishes such as burger, fish & chips, chicken curry and chilli con carne, and these were mostly priced at around £9 - £10. A chicken, bacon and leek puff pastry pie was really very good indeed, a generous portion, very tasty and excellent value at £9. Less successful was a prawn Thai green curry from the specials menu, which although tasty enough had very few prawns in relation to asparagus and green beans, and some of the asparagus was quite tough. They redeemed themselves with a crème brûlée and salted caramel ice cream, which was again very good. There was also a small section in the corner of the menu for any visiting canines!

Beers on tap were Summerskill’s Famous Mr Jones (named after the pub dog) and Hanlon’s Yellow Hammer. A third pump appeared to have run out. Ciders meanwhile were Cornish Rattler and the excellent Otter Wildsider which was a new one on me, very good and tremendous value at £3.20 per pint. We had planned to go on and explore a few more local pubs after eating, but with such a cosy spot, friendly staff and great cider, we ended up staying the whole night.
