“It's a seaside student pub so don't expect the Ritz.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Cheap a reasonably cheerful. Arrived in this place at about 6:30pm on a Saturday eve, so quite quiet. Fed myself and the wife for under £20.. Choice of real ales , reasonably priced. Second pint was served in a chipped glass. I told the barmaid and she just tipped it into another glass.. Though that was a bit poor. Should have poured a fresh one, in my opinion but couldn't be bothered to argue.

Managed to sit in front a large screen TV to eat our food, which arrived quickly, watching rugby match... Just like home.. Decided to move on when it started to fill up with evening trade. Couple of large groups of guys turned up and took over the bar area so noise and language levels went up.

“Crap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

We visited this place last year and thought it was lovely so went again this year, very, very disappointing did not enjoy meal one bit, and there were people on other tables round us who thought the same and there was one member of staff there who kept overcharging people and denying it, The corridor leading to the toilet absolutely wreaked of wee!! and was quite run down will never go again.

“A dump of the highest order .”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

Dirty ,tatty and dull . Needs an urgent refirb before someone gets food poisoning . Only came in because Wetherspoons were packed .Tables sticky service tedious slow .
All in all one to avoid especially if youve got clean clothes on.

“Busiest pub in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Formally the White Horse, this pub has undergone a transformation into a welcoming and comfortable public house. Seating upstairs and down and a good choice of beers, ales, bar snacks and meals.

“Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

The food was pretty nice and the drink selection good, but overall quite expensive. Great location, though - nice and close to the sea front.
