“ Address: 118 High Street / Weston Super Mare BS23 1HP / Dorset „
When it comes to pubs and bars in Weston Super Mare we have no shortage of them being a seaside town of course and we have very many different types and styles to choose from. This isn't in the main of the town centre as such although on the high street, its actually classed as Grove Park near where I live but it is only a very short walk away from other pubs and bars that are open later and more busy though this is a little bit more of a grown up place than the teens that the other pubs tend to cater for so it suits my age of 37 lol!
So the place is on bus routes, has a prime location for grabbing a taxi and is local to other bars and resteraunts. However if you want to park a car in the town centre its like looking for a diamond amongst crystals...hard work! There is a small area to park free of charge locally and a carpark which is rather expensive but both are usually full unless you have a disabled badge, other than that try a side street!

Well there is a garden to the front of it which has lots of seating and some parasols, great for us smokers. Inside the bar it is large and airy and contempory with brown, white and a burgundy colourscheme, its very nice, not what I'd call mega posh but nicely done and a very clean and tidy place.
Staff are nice enough, not overly friendly being a town centre sort of bar but helpful enough and so on.
Drinks here are vast and your looking at about £4.00 a pint of cider or beer, couple quid for coke. No guest ales are appearing here at the moment (I asked) but there is a vast array of spirits to choose from though no deals on alcohol as far as I know.
Food is served and your looking at about roughly £8.00 a head. Its mainly burgers and things that are grilled with chips and there are vegetarian meals available at around the same price. However I cant comment on the food, I have never eaten here and add to that I've never seen them serve food either but I know a friend of mine ate here the other day and enjoyed their burger and chips very much!
There is no real dress code here and theres a mix of ages. It isn't a stuck up kinda place, does attract alot of couples and has a nice enough atmosphere though at weekends the place does get packed and if your sat outside you get music from the 3 other local bars (there are more by the way in the vicinity) that are very loud and do pull in the youngsters that get drunk very quickly!
The music in here is sort of indie and never too loud however bands do appear here live and again I've never been to see them but I can hear them in my flat lol. They actually sound rather good and again its sort of indie and soft rock music and that does get very loud indeed but this tends to be only at weekends.
All in all I like this place for a drink. It isn't my favourite place but its nice enough. The place is smart, the toilets clean (and there is a disabled one) and its stones throw away from where I live and not full of children!
