We visited with local friends. The staff gave us a warm welcome and the food was of a high pub standard, not cheap, but overall very fair value for money. Service was prompt given it was quite busy. The only qualification was the puddings which we found out are bought in. The srtawberry pavlova had virtually no strawberries in it.... More

We stopped here by chance as we were staying nearby on holiday and wanted to grab some lunch somewhere. A charming country pub which is well done up in the bar. The food was good pub grub and a good choice for children's meals. The portions for the children were huge and our 5 year old struggled to finish her... More

What a charming place with genuinely nice staff. It's a little rough for if you're traveling through on business (spotty internet and rustic accommodations) but I hope to bring my wife back on holiday. ps: the 9 hole executive golf course is quite challenging.

Booked through Booking.com, price good for B&B one overnight. Room 'tatty' needs update, bathroom poor, shower difficult to use, light over mirror something from 1930's! Bed comfortable, good tea making facilities in the room, good TV with all Sky channels. Restaurant very good, excellent selection of food available , fairly quick service from very nice and friendly staff. Drinks pricey.... More

We spent two nights here in August and used it for Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal. The staff's customer service was great and the food and variety was very good. As the weather was good we spent a lot of time in the beer garden, which is spacious, well maintained and has things to keep the kids happy. The bedroom... More

We stayed at the Countryman Inn for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding at Lulworth castle. Great location, in easy reach of the Castle, Cove and Durdle door.Very spacious and clean rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Would stay again if visiting the area.

Our first visit to this attractive country pub was for a morning coffee. We are fussy about our coffee but were not disappointed - excellent quality, freshly ground and priced well at £2 for an Americano or £2.20 for a cappuccino, with free refills. While we were in the area, we did consider having dinner here (other guests at our... More

Met family there who live in Dorset. Was so impressed with the pub. Whoever owns it has thought of everything!! Our party of 11 people ranged in age from 6 to 80 and we all had a lovely time. Great food, great service.
