Clean, tidy and friendly. Lots of love music. Feels like its the hub of the town. Think we'll be visiting more often!

If you visit Swanage in Dorset you must visit this club. Elmo, staff and customers make you feel so welcome. You can play snooker, pool, cards and the entertainment is brilliant. There is also bingo and quizzes on certain nights. We will definitely return.

Fleetwood Mac tribute act, after the football, lovely friendly legion club very popular, Good selection of drinks, cheap too, food served, A very pleasant Sunday afternoon and evening. As it's a British Legion, you have to be signed in, and pay a pound.

Friends bar staff, great atmosphere. Sunday roast well worth trying. Meat that actually tastes the way you remember it should. Ideal venue for the Blues Weekends, comfortable seating, good sound, reasonably priced beer and you don't need earplugs for the bands!

Reasonably priced bar with a good range of beverages, lots of seating available mostly with tables. Good place to watch a live band. Very limited parking in the area, best to walk to the venue or get dropped off in a cab.

Really good layout with large well stocked inexpensive bar at one end and elevated stage at other. Clean loos and big floor space. Hot food after five is simple but nicely priced and well cooked. Staff are great bunch. Check it out for live music.

Stopped by here a few times in the last few weeks and was always greeted with a smile and a warm welcome from the bar staff and regulars. The beer is excellent and well priced, even cheaper if there is a match on BT Sports....More
