If you’re looking for a proper pub, then call off the search - the Pulteney Arms is here to save the day.
Situated a short walk from Sydney Park, the Pulteney Arms is a family run pub run by husband and wife duo, Dean and Sasha. And quite frankly, it has everything you want from a good pub; a great selection of beers, a stellar atmosphere, and that all important outdoor space for the summer / log burners inside for the winter.
At its very core, this is a real ale pub which means you’ll find plenty of mighty fine casks beers on at any one time. In the past, we’ve indulged in a couple of pints of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord (brewed in West Yorkshire) and Skinner’s Lushingtons (hailing from Cornwall), as well as more local brews such as Dawkins’ Bristol Blonde (made in Bristol, of course). It’s dedication to ales has even landed itself in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide year on year, so you know it’s doing something right.
But don’t get us wrong - this isn’t just a traditional watering hole. They’re also meeting the demands of taste trends with a growing choice of gins (including Seedlip non-alcoholic gin), freshly prepared Pimms and (our personal favourite) a timeless Aperol Spritz. All of these pair perfectly with their sun-soaked garden area.
They do food too, with ingredients sourced locally. They do some mean pub classics - you know, fish and chunky chips to hearty pies with plenty of gravy - alongside some seasonal gems - we’re talking mussels, cornished dressed crab and salads packed with fresh heritage tomatoes.
This is an old-school style pub with tonnes of charm and the promise of a good time. We’ll drink to that.
