The Pilot Boat Hotel is situated near the beachfront and promenade, making it popular among both tourists and locals in a residential area. Comfy seating can be found in the snug next to a small bookcase and period nautical features which hark back to the days when the regulars were soldiers and sailors. Wooden booths opposite the bar with built in carriage clocks are a quirky feature that add the pub’s appeal. The chalk boards displaying daily specials are a nice touch, illustrating the week’s live entertainment line-up which is well received by the locals. The pub boasts a trade kitchen with equipment that can easily provide for the current food offer, plus any new menus that the new publican wishes to implement. The patio is in very good decorative order following a full refit. This fenced area houses eight wooden benches that can seat 40 covers in comfort with additional standing room and no tall buildings overlook the rear which means that the sun shines on the patio for most of the day.
