Fresh Start For The Sloop

New Sloop landlord and Landlady Andy and Caroline

The Sloop, Poole is now under new management. Andy and Caroline jumped at the opportunity to take over this friendly local pub and can't wait to put in a fantastic new menu. 

Dorset based family brewers Hall & Woodhouse are delighted to welcome a new landlord and landlady to the Sloop, Poole. Andy and Caroline are new to the area having moved from Kent to run the Sloop.


With community being top of the agenda for Andy and Caroline they are looking forward to creating a relaxed and family friendly atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. There are already events in the calendar and the pair is excited to meet the local community.

They kicked things off with an opening party on the 5th September which featured live music from The Rise and canapés based on the pub’s new menu. The night was a great success, locals were invited to a private pre-opening party where they enjoyed a complimentary glass of wine and had the opportunity to meet Andy and Caroline.

Ben Holden Area Manager comments “This evening the Sloop had a new lease of life, guests new and old came together to welcome Andy and Caroline to the area. With its friendly and relaxing atmosphere, delicious food and quality drink the Sloop will no doubt go from strength to strength.”

 Andy and Caroline  are also planning a Macmillan coffee morning on the 26th September where guests can enjoy delicious home-made cakes all in aid of Macmillan-just one of the charities they will be supporting over the coming months.
