We called here for a cool drink (or two!) on a hot day. A very atmospheric, old English pub, with real ales, good service and set in a lovely typical English location. Definitely worth checking out if you are in Dorset.

We stayed for two nights in this lovely little village pub. Chocolate box villages with all the thatched cottages up the main street. The pub was small but had great food. Very high quality local produce. We stayed on the Chambers room which I think was the smaller room in the place. Adequate but a larger one would have been... More

We stopped off here for a pub lip inch, what a find idyllic location. The food was really good and the pub decor was lovely. Can't wait to return and book a room at this great retreat. The village is gorgeous so quaint, a street full of beautiful thatched cottages. There was a wedding taking place while we were there,... More

My husband and I booked a four day break to the hambro arms last year. I was a little apprehensive as I had seen some bad comments and wasn't sure what to expect. But we couldn't have had a better time! The staff are so lovely, Mark the manager goes above and beyond for his guests, the room was very... More

This was a fantastic stay. The food was great quality, a reasonable price and really well portioned. I stayed in the Capability room which was full of character, extremely comfortable, had a TV with free view and tea facilities. I slept brilliantly. The building is beautiful. The setting is picturesque and the staff are superb. They could not have been... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for 4 days and I can honestly say we didn't want to leave. The location is stunning a proper chocolate box village, all thatched cottages and neat little gardens. The pub is a lovely old building, the floors creek, the doors don't fit properly but it a couple of hundred years old and adds... More

We were send by our B&B to this place. The food is as excellent as the service. Even though a pub the food is well above the usual standard. The menu is a mixture of English tradition and Mediterranean influences. A nice wine list completes the picture. We were so impressed that we came back the next night. Well worth... More

We visited here after renting accommodation in the village of Milton Abbas. Our host warned us it was a bit pricey, but we didn't worry too much as we were on holiday. I wish we'd listened - this turned out to be a pub with ideas above its station I think. My partner had fish and chips which, although she... More

We were visiting the village on a day out, and decided to have a pub lunch. Sufficient parking. The staff were very polite and the food very good, served promptly. We sat outside as it was a pleasant day, and enjoyed the view of the village. We had our dog with us, dogs are not a problem at all, and... More

We had the Kings room which was a really characterful room with a window seat which would have been nicer if the view hadnt been a couple of wheelbarrows and a building project. Everything you need including a decent sized bathroom.with a tub and shower and well furnished. We had a great nights sleep even though our room was above... More
