Bournemouth’s only true nationally-known pub, so a pilgrimage here was clearly the highlight of the crawl as listed. However it was a bit of a let-down in all honesty. The interior is fair enough, a V-shaped pub with a raised level off to the left (presumably reflecting the fact that this is two obviously separate properties - both were pubs - knocked together). Hefty amounts of wood panelling in the right hand bar and a pool table in the raised area. Ten pumps at the bar carrying six Wadworth ales (the usual stagers plus a brewers creation). Not being a fan of Waddies (all that sulphur gives one the heebie-geebies next day), I needed a guest. However there were only two on (despite the beer board claiming four…) and one of those was Greene Twatting King…so I went for the only palatable option which was York Terrier which drank well enough. In addition there was Westons cider. Is it a good pub? Yes. Is it a nationally-significant pub? In 2004 it may have been but in 2014, I’d suggest not. Perhaps they’re resting on their laurels…or Wadworth are charging a ludicrous amount to supply decent guests. With the Four Horsemen down the road now open, it’s got some proper competition.

This iconic GBG regular is already well described by JB below. I would add only that also has free wifi and offers food which is reasonably priced. There is currently a drive to appeal to the Office Party Set, but I put this down to a seasonal whim rather than a fundamental disadvantage, and it does appear to have gained a gaming machine or two. On this visit I found the staff charming, pleasant and helpful, the other customers civilised and amicable and the food good. There were 8 ales on, while the remaining two pumps had their labels turned round. The 8 included 4 from Wadworth and two from GK. I plumped for a guest, York Brewery's Yorkshire Terrier which was an outstanding pint, perfect in every respect. This is in many ways an excellent town pub and one to which I shall certainly return

Very disappointing first visit, aged 56 and asked to leave as I had my 17 year old, coke drinking, son with me. Whilst I respect the publican's decision on whom he serves, to be asked to leave, after being served, hurts. I will not be returning even when my son is 18! Message to publican – You should clearly advertise that adults under 18 are not welcome, even if with aged parents.
