Bessie a legend in her lifetime. Nothing but praise for the best pint of Bass in Uk. A must visit for anyone who likes nostalgia. We go back every time we are in Pembroke. It was nice to see Bessie at 88 still the landlady and supported by her granddaughter

Called in after along and interesting walk got a lovely pint of Bass served through a hatch by a jug by her granddaughter if you wanted another drink you had to ring a bell it was like going back sixtey years Bessi was in a wheelchair in the corner of the bar as sharp as ever.

Not sure what some reviewers are expecting, this is a traditional old country pub, basically a few seats, a fire and a serving hatch. Beer is from the barrel into a jug. It is not palatial (although it is frequented by royals), it is not a gastro pub (I did see peanuts) and it is not spotless (I also spotted a dead fly....perhaps I'll die).
Go there while it is still like it is....splendid.
