Not a bad pub but an obvious tourist trap by means of location. Hall & Woodhouse , so nothing to get the pulse racing, Tanglefoot, Badger Best and Old Harrys Sail Pale. There was Live music on a Sunday afternoon, if that was too loud there is a small courtyard garden too the rear. The beer was served in poly carbonate glassware, not so good.

A characterful Hall & Woodhouse outlet on the quayside. The interior wraps round a central bar. Flagstone floor, duelling pistols above the bar, wood burning stove, comfy banquettes, inevitable maritime paraphernalia. Seems big on live music and there’s a pool table and darts to the rear. Plenty of seating out front for a nice prom view on a sunny day. Three Badger beers on and an interesting selection of First Call, Twilight Tawny (drank well) and Tanglefoot as well as Westons Rosie's Pig. As it’s an H&W place expect to be stung for prices. Sarcy but ostensibly friendly ROCK barman. I rather liked it in here, shame it was so quiet - seems more of an evening/weekend pub.

A fine Georgian sea-front pub on a busy promenade location. There is a seating area at the front with a limited view of the boats in the Town Quay, from which you enter a single long, L-shaped bar. The staff were quite pleasant, even though it was busy. Apparently there is often karaoke, but we were spared that torment during this visit. The food looked a bit ordinary but was fine for a convenient snack. The majority of the customers were mature motor cyclists, the atmosphere was convivial and the beer was decent – two ales on, both Hall and Woodhouse. My First Call was a good pint, although not the best I've had. Worth including on a crawl or stopping for refreshments while visiting the Quay.
