Welcoming, refreshing place to stay. Great food and excellent pints of cider, that trickled comfortably don't my throat after a day by the sea at Lulworth Cove. The Anvil is in a very quiet location, when laying in bed not a sound could be heard as for the night sky it was so clear and bright due to the lack... More

Second time I have stayed here and would recommend it to any one who needs a good friendly place to stay very good for the Poole and surrounding area. The food is great and home cooked, and the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

The Anvil at Pimperne in Dorset is a really comfortable and friendly pub which has accommodation. Simply furnished with really clean en-suite facility. The outstanding features were the freshly cooked to order food, which was really tasty and creatively presented without being pretentious. Most apparent was the politeness and good humour of all the staff. Will definitely return.

Travelling home after a holiday and decided to pop in here for lunch. The pub was completely empty and had no atmosphere. The decor is boring, dark and dingy with no character. The seating area is very uncomfortable with only benches and bar stools to sit on. We explained we wanted to eat and were shown a pile of menus... More

I had haddock with beer batter and I have never tasted batter like it, I highly recommend the haddock and also... More

We were passing The Anvil Inn whilst travelling through the area and had no previous knowledge of it. We were so pleased we had stopped. We were warmly welcomed and the service and ambience was good. The food was lovely - chicken in a peppercorn sauce and sea bass. Both dishes well cooked - with great sauté potatoes! The prices... More

This is my 4th night at this hotel and I have to say it's quite possibly the worst I've endured. I arrived on Sunday evening at 9.45pm and after a long 6 hour journey, thought I'd just love a thirst quenching pint. I was served and at the same time was told that whatever I hadn't drunk by 10pm would... More

Dear Sir, We welcome constructive criticism though we fail to see how this low rated review is relevant to our property or staff in anyway. it appears your real issue is with the fact that another guest was being loud and disruptive, nothing at all to do with the cleanliness of our building or our customer service. We like to... More
