After sampling the fare at a restaurant with claims to quality in the same street a few evenings prior to the Stanley Hotel - and which may have disappeared as I don't see it anywhere on this site - and being floored at the average quality of the food and the risibly pretentious staff, we held our breaths entering when we ate dinner here. Had to duck my head too as one of the doors was pretty low! This place is a winner. Big room with lots of memorabilia of the nautical kind, jam-packed with families, great pub food, and a happy buzzing atmosphere. My wife had a meat dish and the other two of us had fish. Nicely prepared, cooked, and presented and with plenty of sides. Drinks roster was a bit light on so stuck with a Cascade. Staff were really nice and friendly and seemed to enjoy working there as much as we enjoyed having a pub meal and a beer. We even saw our waiter from a few nights previous meal at a lovely hotel in Stanley having dinner there on his night off! He just smiled when he saw us... Great pub food, happy and competent staff, buzzing pub near the bay; what more could you ask for?
