Smells bad !If you can put up with that then a great pub to visit is cheaper than some . Great for watching sports and live music.

Old fashioned pub, friendly staff, dog friendly, can't beat a pint in there and having fish and chips from the Royal Plaice opposite at your table! A firm favourite for years!

Excellent service as ever in the pub. A proper pub in the heart of Appledore. Bar staff always friendly especially Alice who goes above and beyond. Yes sometimes you have to wait , but that is always when it's busy as is expected. Always got a varied selection of live music to suit all. Keep up the good work .

the pub side of it is terrible, if your a tourist avoid at all at all cost they make it clear that your not welcome and it’s a pub for locals and locals only. me and my family party of 14 came here on our first night to have a few drinks one women that worked there was very rude and making nasty comments towards us, even though we put plenty of money behind the bar and keeping ourselves to ourselves. we won’t be going back there again as we was made to feel out of place and uncomfortable.
