About the Pub

Dating from 1936, the Admiral Drake now stands isolated - dwarfed by the Rudmore flyover. The U-shaped bar room is bare boarded and furnished with a mix of traditional tables and chairs as well as high tables and bar stools. There is a performance area for live bands to the right as you enter. A pool table and jukebox can be found here - and there is a dart board at the rear of the pub. Various sporting events are shown on television. In winter a real log fire is a welcome sight opposite the bar counter throughout the colder months. The pub sells three or four well-kept cask ales, sourced from breweries both large and small, with guest beers, always at least one Locale, including offerings that are unusual for the local area. Traditional Cider is sometimes served on handpump. Food, including sandwiches, paninis, burgers and main meals, with prices being very reasonable indeed. The pub is a popular destination for motorcycle enthusiasts and live music fans. Outside events are held during the summer in the pub's large car park. A patio area is provided year-round. Only 2 minutes from the International ferryport.
