We chose the Brace as a central point for exploring the Piddle Valley. Well what a find. Accommodation was 5* and the food, atmosphere and general ambience were truly wonderful. Full of history and nestling in a lovely location well off the beaten track the Brace is a perfect location to get away from it and indulge yourself.

Found at last minute as let down by another hotel. Tucked away in a side valley of the river Piddle lies Plush, the hamlet that hosts the Brace of Pheasants. A thatched pub/hotel full of history, character and charm and coupled with great hospitality. Lovely rooms above the bar (others available in the former skittle alley overlooking the garden retreat).... More

We had three nights here, which we enjoyed very much. The area is very quiet and relaxing with a lovely wak from the hotel, on which we saw a badger in a field in the afternoon sunshine, it made our day. Our room was in the old skittle alley, it was very nicely furnished, but it was dark with only... More

We made a last minute booking for a night away and stumbled across the Brace of Pheasants at Plush - what a find! This place is so full of character and charm. The restaurant retains all its original feel but serves delicious locally sourced food and the staff are all friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is a combination of quaint... More

Just had two nights at this tucked away country pub. The bedrooms in the annexe where great . Meals i would recommend the piri piri chicken but if the curry was on the menu I would drive back tonight for it.

Located in an elderly building, we were not expecting much and were suprised at the quality of the food. The selection was a little reduced due to some of the expected produce not being delivered. The starters were pretty good and so were the mains. The place was virtually empty, not suprising since this is the back of beyond. The... More

Just stayed at this pub just for one night to enable us to visit Dorset Badger Watch with some friends, that is just up the road. A nice friendly welcome, great room (shame we didn't have time to try out the HUGE bath ), great food, nice atmosphere. But it is remote.

One of the attractions is that the Brace is so secluded and therefore almost guarantees peace and quiet. Last time we visited, we walked for miles in the surrounding countryside but this time, at 6 months pregnant, we opted for food and blissful sleep. The food was excellent again - rabbit starter with venison to follow as a main ticked... More

We took our Mums here for a birthday lunch and weren't disappointed. Although they don't cater specifically for kids, we had an area in the restaurant all to ourselves set up with a high chair, which was very comfortable apparently! The cod & chips main was adapted to feed the little ones, and the wild boar sausages and venison burger... More

We stayed here for 1 night in April 15. The staff were friendly welcoming and attentive. The room was pleasant and clean, huge bath! We had evening meal and breakfast the next morning, both we're great. We are vegetarians and they did their best to accommodate for us. The only downfall was there are no central heating, only portable radiators,... More
