Needing to eat we were on our way to wimborne minster when we saw this place and thought it would do. It was empty except for a few locals at the bar and we put this down to being a Monday night. The food appears to be the normal 'ping' meal offerings and nothing to get overly exited about. However... More

I hadn't eaten at the Horton Inn for many years. The last meal I had there was so bad I decided never to bother going back, but a friend invited me to dinner and I thought it was worth giving it another go. We arrived and the place was empty. I was about 7pm on a Thursday night. There was... More

Well I too have passed this pub many times over the years and it does look impressive. Ideal location you would think. Alas it was dank and gloomy in side, I understand there is new management and if so please hurry up and do some thing. We had a carvery which was limited to frozen deep fried roasties, cauliflower, deep... More

For the first time ever we decided to eat out for xmas day, as we left it so late there wasnt many places left not booked out. So we went to the Horton Inn, i guess that was our first mistake ! We were a party of 6 adults and 1 toddler. There were another 9 tables eating as well.... More

We went here whilst travelling back from a Christmas break. It looked nice from the outside apart from the huge potholes in the stony car park which needed attention. We went in hoping to have a drink and perhaps food. The inside is like something out of the 50's! So disappointing as it looked good from the outside. There was... More

Went a long way out of our way to have a meal here having eaten here before. Will not be visiting again. The outside was being renovated and it is a shame that the inside wasn't being attended to first. The décor is very dated and shabby. Our meal was ok, but for the price was disappointing, also didn't appreciate... More

I have just come back from eating at the Horton inn after meeting some friends for a dinner, firstly the resturant was empty, completely empty so we ate in the bar area, although the room was warm with the log fire that was the only atmosphere, the actual bar had 6 men sat at it leaving no room to place...

What a dump, might look nice on the outside now it's been painted, but that is the only redeeming feature of this place...still grotty looking inside! Rude, unfriendly & unhelpful staff...too busy keeping the locals happy to even bother with anyone else's custom. No food available as the kitchen was 'closed' on a Sunday afternoon...oh come on, plenty of food... More

This hotel is under new management, the third this year, and I feel the new team will do well. Charlotte has the personality, charisma and drive to make it a sucess and her staff are attentive and welcoming. In fact, nothing is too much trouble and I've enjoyed some excellent evening meals. I and my colleagues are working on a... More
