This beautiful ancient building, just behind the harbour area is an amazing place, dating from 1380. They have a regular 'house beer' brewed by Summerskills - Cherub Bitter, and at least 2 differing guest ales on hand pull each month, from various brewers, so something different to try most months. In the summer and busy season they have 4 beers on hand-pull, in quieter season 3 hand pulls, plus lager and cider. At my last visit the Guest beers were from Sharps. The downstairs bar is very tiny but cosy and full of character, and the restaurant area is upstairs. Being a small place and popular with both locals and tourists alike, it can be very crowded and difficult to get served at busy times, and you may even have to stand outside. This can be a drawback, but still worth the effort to go, and an essential visit for anyone interested in real ale in Dartmouth and just to see the building itself. Off season (October - March) there are not so many tourists, so it will be quieter and you more likely to get a seat. The downstairs bar area has seats for about 40, and not much room for standing.

I am told the food is good, but have no experience of it myself. Dartmouth being a justifiably popular place with visitors, prices tend to be a bit more than the average bar, but still worth it.
