Get fish and chips from the excellent chippy 2 doors down and eat them in this fantastic pub. Especially good when there's live music. We were only in Appledore for 3 nights and visited this place every single night!
If you are in town, this is a place you must visit if you enjoy music and drinks. Sweetheart place. I’m in love with this place. Great vibes. Awesome performance by the musicians. The beer is great. I bought my own pizza and initially thought that I would spend an hour but ended up staying for around 2.5 hours till the place got closed for the night. Photos and memories of princess Diana were seen in the pub, who I was a fan of in my school days and admired her work.

Best pub in appledore for atmosphere, place is small so buggies and big dogs probably not a good idea. Great range of beers and ciders.

The heart of Appledore … staff were so friendly when we first arrived and went over and above to make us welcome, we have an 8 year old so pubs can easily become boring, but he was made especially welcome by staff and he really enjoyed it…. We visited regularly through our stay and enjoyed the music and great atmosphere! We were able to take local food in to the pub. The pizzas were amazing :)))))) We absolutely adore this little gem and hope to visit again soon! Friendships made and we left a little piece of our hearts here ! Thankyou so much Josh, Sam, Izzy, Adrian, and Ben … see you again ;))
