Poole is one of the largest natural harbours in the world and the port itself has a long trading history dating back to Roman times. It is still a working port, particularly on the southern side, where many half-constructed Sunseeker yachts can be seen. This side also includes a ferry terminal and container port. On the northern side a fishermen’s dock nestles incongruously adjacent to a yachting marina, which houses many luxurious vessels, most of which would have been built across the water. The Quay and Old Town contain numerous cobbled streets and alleyways with historic buildings, some dating back to the fifteenth century. Many of the town’s pubs are situated in these areas and their chequered maritime history, including pirates and smugglers, is reflected in these pubs.

In Poole Pubs author Andrew Jackson takes the reader on a fascinating journey through Poole’s watering holes. Many of the pubs have retained features and traditions of previous ages, and he reveals the variety of Poole’s pubs today including the characters that have frequented or run the public houses over the years. Brimming with quirky tales and intriguing facts, this carefully crafted guide initiates readers into the history of Poole’s pubs.
