Itís such a shame this traditional town pub, popular with young and old alike, doesnít offer real ale. Plenty of friendly banter and loud music from the juke-box. Interesting building Ė it once stood at the head of Temperance Terrace, a renowned Cowes alleyway with its own community, which was sadly demolished many years ago to make room for a car park. To give you a flavour of what it was like, walk down the road to Cross Street, and then through an almost identical alleyway called Middleton Terrace.
