Last year, on our first visit to Bournemouth, we were looking for a decent pub and had almost given up when we asked a passing traffic warden if he could recommend anywhere. He was very helpful and told us how to take the ten minute walk away from the sea front to the Goat and Tricycle. It was so good that we came back again today, a year later, as we were in the area. The staff are friendly and welcoming and they clearly want to give their customers a positive experience. There were 10 real ales on and we had the IPA which was perfect. For a Tuesday lunchtime the place was comfortably busy with a mix of locals and 'out of towners' like ourselves. The food was excellent. So if you are looking for a proper pub it is definitely worth the effort of seeking it out.
