Is what it is. Local pub in small town. Nothing spectacular. More cons than pros regarding what I look for in a pub.

I called in to the Marine Bar, on a photo safari. This place dates back to 1890, so I was curious to see inside a genuinely Victorian building. Back then it was the Marine Hotel, built by William Larmour, who put "founder of Whitehead" on...More

I sat at the bar for an evening, discussing stuff with someone. I had a couple of half pints of Strongbow cider, then some soda water and lime, and crisps. Swift service, Clare (Claire?) the manager was there. Spacious place. I liked my stool. They...More
