Booked at this well known pub to which we had been before. What a disappointment it was. We arrived just after 2 for the 2nd sitting for Sunday lunch the leftovers were ok. The carvery looked tired and poor choice of vegetables, no cauliflower. The service was slow and our table was small and in a very packed area I... More

We stayed as a family of one adult and two teenagers staying for one night. If you're looking for that really personal touch from a B&B, then seek out a smaller place. As a good, functional B&B with on site evening meals and nice breakfast, then the Countryman will be ideal. Standard of our room was good and functional. Large... More

This has become our new local pub. It's great, family feel. Good food. Prompt and friendly service and they're dog friendly. Even giving our dog a bowl of water and treats. There's also free pub games.

Took my family and a toddler here for an evening meal. Booked on same day. Excellent play area and mini golf for the kids. In the restaurant there was clearly a problem that night with delivering food within a reasonable time. However, the table service staff were friendly and apologetic and we were given free drinks whilst waiting. If you're... More

We booked for just one night, but wished it could have been longer. Being in Devon, we had booked as we purposely stayed away from the chains/big players as we wanted to support the local traders - I am so glad we did. The place is lovely, the kids were very pleased to see the play area at the back,... More

What a find! I only booked as it was colsest to where I needed to be for business, but I can honestly say this is one of the best places I've stayed for ages. I have a lovely, warm, well appointed room. The menu is vast & both meals I've had have been excellent as was breakfast. The staff are... More

A well run pub in a lovely part of Dorset. Rooms are well appointed and everything worked. I was delighted to find my room had SKY but unfortunately the box, which was just left on the floor, only provided the main BBC and ITV channels plus a few other odd ones. Irritatingly many came up on the guide but couldn't... More

Stayed here quite a few times now and my opinion hasn't changed absolutely fantastic!! Mark and Karen and the rest of the team offer a fantastic service. This time we went to celebrate my mums birthday and they couldn't have done more to help me with organising something special for her. Will be returning again me next year.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here. But it could have been so much better. Rooms were nice and spacious but not a chair in sight hence not very comfortable. Bathrooms were lovely but there was virtually no pressure in our shower. The meals were either great or not very good. The pub had a nice atmosphere but there's hardly a... More
