Cold beer in Poole

I have been to poole a few times on the rib but had not come across this place until the weekend - It is just inside the harbour on the left.

Amazing place for a cold one/snack on a sunny afternoon.

The fantastic thing is you can just beach the rib or put the anchor in and stroll straight up the beach for a cold beer and keep your eye on the boat.

I am not normally one to plug restaurants and am not linked in anyway to the place -I would even say the food is overpriced but what a superb location!

Only thing to watch out for is a hidden rock just to the inshore side of a red pole opposite the place - saw two people hit it last weekend.

Any other similar places out there?

Sunk the anchor there a few times along with the odd beer, but there are a few nasty little rocks and a shingle bottom to be wary of, plus the tide can be a ripper there if you anchor a fraction to far out, as this is next to the ferry entrance, and if you remember your physics you know what happens to something big, going small!!!

Yeah been in there a few times myself too. It dries out rather quick to a long way out if you anchor inside the harbour-be careful if the tide is dropping.

I can heartily recommend Joe's caff on Studland Beach too-and she's open weekends all year round unless it's too shitty for anyone to be out.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

Yep - echo the sentiments completely. Its worth noting that anywhere along Shell Bay (the beach immediately to the left just before the Harbour entrance) is shallow enough that you can get the rib right upto the beach.

Also if you've got the kids with you there is an Ice Cream boat (honest !! - I'm not kidding ) that comes by a couple of times a day and you can get your lollys and cornetto's without having to leave the comfort of the beach
