Poole Quay Pubs

Poole Harbour Guide is a free independent guide to Poole, Sandbanks, Studland, Swanage, Corfe Castle & Purbeck

 

The pubs shown below can be found along Poole Quay and have been listed in order starting from the east of the Quay and working west towards the lifting bridge. As you can imagine the Quay can get pretty popular on Friday and Saturday nights and during the summer months. By 10pm the atmosphere can get pretty "lively" with frequent pub crawls taking place. Every Tuesday evening from April to September is "Motorbike Night" or Cole Miller Dream Machines Night as it is officially called. Parking on the Quay is prohibited after 2pm and the Quay is closed to traffic at 6pm. The show kicks-off shortly after 6pm with as many as 1500 bikes on display depending on the weather.

Brewery: Beers served are from the Ringwood Brewery (Ringwood Best, Old Thumper, Boondoggle, Fortyniner etc)

Facilities: Good selection of food with an obvious leaning towards locally caught seafood. Excellent quality simple dishes such as fish soup, fish pie, seafood casserole. Fish cooked either pan-fried, poached or oven baked served with new potatoes and peas. No chips in sight! Check out the board outside for daily specials and catch-of-the-day.

No children allowed in the bar.

The King Charles Pub, Poole Quay Pubs, Poole Quay, Poole Dorset

The King Charles Pub, Poole Quay Pubs, Poole Quay, Poole Dorset

 

The main section of the pub was built in Tudor times, hence the timber-framed walls and oriel windows. Inside, the old roof beams, panelling and an original fireplace remain. The pub, which is reputed to be haunted, was named after King Charles X of France, who landed here on his way to exile in 1830.
