The Royalty Inn, 60 Bargates,Christchurch, Dorset BH23 1QL 

Royalty Pub

Unfortunately the Royalty Inn has now closed down and is being redeveloped for housing. All the photographs that adorned the wall have ben saved along with the original pub sign and, in due course, will once again go back on display at another location.

This was the closest pub to the Royalty and was actually named after the fishery, having been a favourite watering hole for both local and visiting anglers for many years. Originally known as the Red Lion its name was changed to the Royalty Inn back in the 1980's in recognition of this close link to both fishing and fishermen. It is located opposite Davis Tackle and evidence of its links to fishing can be found all over the pub with the walls plastered with photographs of anglers and their prized catches and the odd vintage rod and reel hanging from the ceiling.


The Railway, 2 Stour Road, Christchurch, Dorset, BH23 1PS


Situated on the corner of Bargates and Stour Road, the Railway is about five minutes from the entrance to the Royalty Fishery. It is a traditional local pub offering well kept real ales, largers and the wonderful Old Rosie cider. Since the Royalty Inn has closed down, the Railway has taken up much of the angling trade with anglers tending to use the rear bar and the garden area. The landlord Jim has now introduced a small, excellent value menu which has been well received by both anglers and locals alike.

 The Thomas Tripp, 10 Wick Lane, Christchurch, Dorset, BH23 1HX

Thomas Tripp Pub

The Thomas Tripp is situated at the other end of Christchurch High Street but is worth a visit if you fancy a livelier evening in Town. It offers all day food in the Summer with a variety of 'specials' such as locally caught sea bass along with a comprehensive menu. Amongst the beers on offer is the local Ringwood 49'er which should be treated with a bit of respect. The pub has a good outdoor area which is particularly popular in the Summer. There is also regular live music.

 Ye Olde George Inn, 2A Castle Street, Christchurch, Dorset, BH23 1DT

Ye Olde George Inn

Ye Olde George Inn is situated on the corner  of the High Street and Castle Street at the far end of town.In Summer this is very much a food orientated pub although the owners have recently set up a micro brewery called Piddle Brewery and they now offer this range of ales along with the local Ringwood bitters. They also have the widest range of ciders in town. The two bars are quite small but there is a great courtyard area where you can sit and eat and drink which makes it very popular, particularly with families, during the Summer months.
