Nice room for our two night stay with all the things you'd expect for that type of break, although I missed not being able to have breakfast in the pub. However to counter that we ate breakfast in Tudor Rose Tea Rooms and The Glassblowing House nearby, which were both really good. Only downside was the parking! We didn't need... More

Popped in here for a couple of drinks after diner on the Barbican. Fair enough it was early evening on a Saturday so the revellers were out but we were greated by the barmen bent down behind the bar offering an inuendo towards his co-worker! Whilst i'm not a prude it wasn't quite the greeting I was expecting. The pub... More

A pub with a reputation for being quiet and lowkey seems to have sealed and become more fun. Recently we have dropped in after walks around the sea front. More suitable for older folk like my mother than say the Dolphin. But the AMcB with its carpet and warmer fresher decor also seems to be attracting youngsters. Generally more relaxed... More

Stayed in one of the upstairs rooms very reasonably priced compared to hotels just up the road. Friendly manageress and amazing view out of the window. Clearly been recently refurbished, my only fault would be no TV in my room! I like the background noise although the window view was more than enough

A great pub with an excellent atmosphere, good music and fantastic crab sandwiches. Friendly and helpful staff. It's rare to find good all round pubs like this nowadays. Definitely worth a visit when your on the barbican.
