Recognition of committment

Voted Pub of the Season by East Dorset CAMRA for Spring 2019 – and in the running for Pub of the Year in East Dorset, The Barking Cat Alehouse is the No.1 destination Pub in the Parkstone Area of Poole. Managed by Mark Ambrose , you’d be hard pushed to be disappointed with the choice of Ale/Cider/Craft Beer! With a total of 24 different products on tap at all times – and with all cask on ever changing selections and 5 out of the 10 keg lines changing all the time and with every style you could possible ask for… why would you go anywhere else?!


Managed by Mark Ambrose, a well known Licensee in the area, the other staff are mainly Family and business partners…. Manager: Mark Ambrose (Director/Manager), Michael Ambrose (Director), Steven Hall, Thomas Ambrose, Serena Hall… Together we make one hell of a team! 🙂
