If you are after traditional and good pub food then this is not the place for you, if you are ok for microwave like & out of the packet food then it might be alright. Service is good though and staff are friendly and the pub is right in the middle of town two minutes from the beach front. As... More

Wouldn't stay there again if you paid us. Food is ok, but room was in need if a spring clean. Beds comfortable and clean though. Bathroom clean but extractor fan not working - can of air spray left on top of toilet instead. We stayed three nights and our beds were not made once in that time, nor was our... More

we went for lunch here and were extremely disappointed. We ordered a lemonade and a coke and couldn't drink them- how can you ruin a soft drink?? We also ordered 2 main meals . The sausages were hard and nasty and both meals were in a bowl which was just as well as they were swimming in gravy. There are... More

We had limited choice due to our late booking and it being a bank holiday weekend, so we chose this pub for a couple of nights away in Swanage. We knew it may be noisy being a pub, which t was, but that was not an issue really. We had requested a room with a king sized bed, but it... More

We were booked here for 2 nights by Contours Walking Holidays and were thoroughly disappointed following our previous experience of their choice of accommodation. Our first room ( 3) was small and located above the kitchen so we could hear the chefs talking. It overlooked the beer garden so we had to close the blind. There was also a huge... More

Spent two long nights here. Room was dirty, bathroom dirty, toilet seat broken, shower trickled out, noisy till four in the morning.. We asked to move rooms but they said they were fully booked but still advertised rooms available. Had to buy ear plugs so we could sleep. Breakfast was ok, dirty floors, tables. A good clean throughout needed. I... More

There were a few unfortunate events. Room very basic & very small. Booked in for 3 nights, but checked out after two - that was enough. Thunder storms tripped some of the electric ie sockets in some rooms - so hot, so couldn't use the fan that they very kindly supplied, so staff moved us to another room. Apparently the... More

We have stayed 3 times now and would stay again. We always seem to have the same room which overlooks the garden and car park which is quiet. We wouldn't stay at the weekend as we are ' getting on a bit ' and not sure if we could cope with the live music but we like the friendly staff,... More

This place is in such a lovely location yet I was slightly disappointed when I stayed here. Perhaps it was because we stayed between Christmas and New Year and everywhere seems a little deflated. To enter the property there are 3 doors, 2 at the front and 1 at the side - the 2 at the front were blocked by... More

Not in this pub. A mid afternoon visit for a Dorset cider and disappointed to see all the usual bottled fare of Magners and Koppaberg. Opted for a local ale instead. A pint of Piddle was a good brew. Had to run the gauntlet of the smoking clients to gain entry to the pub too
