Largely opened up inside and modernised to some extent, this pub retains the atmosphere of a real pub. The bar area on the right is furnished with normal tables and chairs, but through an archway on the left is another room, extending back beyond the servery, with a few tall tables/tall stools and more standard furnishings. This room also contains a rarely seen bar billiards table. Decor is inevitably, and appropriately, nautically themed, with ships’ wheels, ships’ lamps and seafaring based prints on the walls. Three or four real ales usually available plus a cider on the 6 handpumps. Food is available Wednesday to Sundays, with children under 8 eating for free with each paying adult meal, although children are more than welcome they have to vacate the premises by 8pm. Live music on every other Friday. Also has accommodation suites sleeping 9-12 people on the upper floors.
