GUESS THE PUB GOES TO THE BEACH

It’s back !

After what seems like decades Guess the Pub returns, and to mark this weeks impending heatwave we’ve rolled up our trouser legs and we’re off to the seaside.

Our mystery pub, which may well be (really) shut, is in a one street suburb of this great University seaside town, and greets you with TWO micropubs, one of which will delight one of our North American readers. For the connoisseur, there’s also a Spoons.

Whereabouts ?

Ooh, obscure clue.

And once you’re they’re, you’ll find our pub near this;

I’ve scoured the interior views for giveaway clues, no doubt one of you has some whizzy software to identify it.

Interesting outside wall.

Rather plain sports bar.

Hurrah ! ANOTHER turned round hand pump, more proof of CAMRA’s success story.

Three reviews on Trip Advisor, ALL 1 star. Amazingly, NOT the worst place in town. Here’s the highlights;

Run by cowboy students and the only food served in there seems to be cocaine

I leaned on the dado rail and was covered in wet paint the landlady was an idiot

 “Childish”, “Immature”, “Pathetic”, “Unprofessional” 

And it’s NOT Blackpool, if that helps.

But redemption, as ever, lies outside;

A 330ml bottle of WKD to the winner, I guess (while stocks last).

  1. “It’s back !”

    Curses. My (almost) daily nemesis.

    “and to mark this weeks impending heatwave we’ve rolled up our trouser legs and we’re off to the seaside.”

    That’s an LNG terminal with a tanker about to become stuck a la Evergreen. Thus driving not only oil prices up, but gas as well!

    “and greets you with TWO micropubs, one of which will delight one of our North American readers. ”

    That’s either Dave, cause it’s steeped in history, or me, cause it has a name that can be misinterpreted. 😉

    “Ooh, obscure clue.”

    Like any of your clues aren’t obscure?

    “Interesting outside wall.”

    Aha! It starts with ‘The’. That narrows it down. 🙂

    “Three reviews on Trip Advisor, ALL 1 star. Amazingly, NOT the worst place in town.”

    Blimey.

    “But redemption, as ever, lies outside;”

    Indeed!
    (slow golf clap)

    Cheers

    1. If it’s any consolation, Russ, I haven’t been to any of these recent pubs and I wouldn’t have guessed them either. I suspect some readers have posh computer software.

      1. You gave this one away, Martin to be fair, didn’t you?

        I only realised that after I’d had fun comparing all the aerial shots of the piers on the South Coast, and then checking out the town’s Wetherspoons, mind.

  2. The answers are;

    The Talbot, Winton (Dale of Pets Win Prizes fame), Bournemouth. I’d no idea a Talbot was a dog ! Wise Guys Barber Shop is up the road.

    It looks TERRIBLE. But I bet it’s great.

    1. The Talbot, nearest pub to stone railway station, was known for many years as the Vanishing Dog as more permanent paints had evidently been used for the rural background on the pubs sign than for the dog meant to be prominent in the foreground.
