We went as a party of 17, adults and children. Good food and good service. The garden was perfect for a nice sunny day. Area for the children to play was a welcome bonus. The pub menu was ideal with a good choice. Much enjoyed.

Went with a party of six of us, my cousin and family who live near and are regular visitors, and how you can see why. Very nice local country pub, with great food and mist admit ample portions. Really enjoyable

We booked in for 2 nights but enjoyed the Inn and area that we stayed an extra night. We had a warm welcome from Tim. Nice room overlooking the beer garden. The food was great we ate there on the three nights.Enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar with the locals. Will love to go back

We popped in having been up to Eggardon Hill, and thought we'd have a look. Very pleasant atmosphere, food looked good, and drinks were great. Landlord was very friendly and hospitable. Will definitely go again.

I have been here many times in the last few months and it has been consistently excellent! Big hearty portions of excellent pub food, with excellent service from a very friendly team. We recently booked a big group for a birthday and everyone enjoyed the food and again the service was brilliant especially considering how many of us there were.... More

I stayed at The Spyway with a French friend last week. I thought it would be an ideal stopover after a day of walking and we were not disappointed. Perfect example of an English country inn. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival, the food was excellent and the room very comfortable. I will return and recommend to... More

There is no pretence here; it's simply a small, straight forward country pub in a lovely rural setting. There is a small bar and two larger rooms which are both set out for dining. Lovely garden with a children's play area. Staff were welcoming and helpful. Lunchtime food included starters: duck spring rolls, smoked haddock chowder, mozzarella fritters, pan fried... More

Eaten a few times and each time the food and staff are fantastic I would recommend the steak and otter ale pie, some very nice ciders on tap as well. Well worth the journey to west Dorset for this hidden gem .

We have just returned from a two night break at the Spyway. This is a special place where you can have a comfy night stay and some seriously good food. The owners pride themselves on sourcing local produce and it's a winner. The whole family are so friendly and made us feel very welcome. For a cosy stay in the... More
