Have spent some great evenings at this lovely pub in Christchurch, in fact becoming a bit of a regular! Good quiz night on Thursdays with Al the quizmaster. Lovely food and the freshly cooked pizzas smell amazing. Jazz night on a Tuesday also very good. Drinks reasonably priced. Friendly, attentive staff, especially Nick.

Hadn't been since the revamp, so disappointed, the old menu has gone and in its place is a really bland get anywhere one. I had the fish and chips, supposedly "cod" but was all batter, and the fish was still raw in the middle, my Husbands steak was better but nothing special. When we arrived the girl behind the bar...

Only ended up in Ye Olde as our original choice was full, but fate worked in our favour as we had a wonderful meal. We had 3 snack plates to start with and all of them were fantastic, followed this with a delicious chicken, bacon and guacamole burger and then rounded it off with the salted caramel chocolate fudge cake....

What a blast of the 90's! 90's music and a totally 90's wine bar feel to the place. Friendly staff clean and tidy pub with a few choices of beer. It felt like the place was trying to be a bar it was never going to be in my opinion. It would be great to strip back to a quality... More

An impromptu lunch stop whilst shopping in Christchurch. The first time we'd eaten here but we were impressed with our choices from the set price lunch menu. Excellent tomato and basil soup with warm ciabatta, followed by a pizza for my partner and a chicken wrap for me. The pizza was of the proper hand-stretched type. My wrap came with... More

"Great Pub Great Staff Great Quiz Nights" Had a great night here. Drinks very reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. We popped in on the Thursday quiz night as we love a good pub quiz. The quiz master was friendly and welcoming and explained everything we needed to know. The quiz itself was diverse and challenging... More

Right in the centre of Christchurch (you'll need to use the central car park) next to the ducking stool. There's a few seats out the front and more in the large inner courtyard. We were in the bar at the front - as the barn-like room at the rear had a private party of 24. Think it's changed hands recently... More

Happened on this pub while exploring Christchurch. Very atmospheric with quite a small bar and an outside courtyard. Unfortunately quite a simple order of fish and chips for two took half an hour to appear! According to a local resident the pub has recently changed hands- if so the catering side needs sorting out! When you have paid over the... More
