Did an off the cuff trip to Dorset last weekend, no hotel booked in advance but found a little gem in a place called Swyre, the Bull Inn. Friendly staff, good atmosphere & excellent value for money considering it is the high season. Good honest pub food & well presented clean rooms. Will definitely go back there, says it all... More

Warm and friendly owners, made us feel welcome and at home. Food excellent and reasonably priced. We enjoyed a few nice pints of doombar.Our room was lovely everything was very clean and up to date. The shower was amazing I felt like I had enjoyed a massage! Would recommend and stay again.

We moved to the area just over two years ago and The Bull Inn has become one of our favourite haunts! Lovely staff - always a friendly welcome in a beautiful part of Dorset. If you are looking for a place to eat your Sunday roast then go no further than here as they provide a gorgious carvery!

The carvery was a joke. A chef without whites, who didn't carve the meat, just scrapped at... More

We stopped on the off chance on a Sunday lunch time that they were still serving. It was relatively busy but still plenty of tables left. We were pleased there was a carvery and were told there were three different meats on that day. There were different sized portions, small, medium and large, which is great when you have children...
