I went with my aged Uncle who eats there quite often on Sunday evenings. He had raved about the carvery, so I was expecting big things; and I wasn't disappointed. I had some beautiful roast beef with a good selection of vegetables, all cooked to perfection. The 'haggis stuffing' was a sublime touch.I look forward to eating there again soon.

We ate here twice during our holiday in Dorset last week. On Sundays they serve a carvery which looked great and a range of other pub food. During the week there is a longer menu to choose from. The food was lovely - large portions and very tasty. The puddings are huge! On both occasions it was busy and there... More

Heard lots of good things came out of this place, so thought it would be great place to eat on Monday night, a kind of spontaneous romantic dinner. Initial impressions, kind over egged the Scottish theme, I am not anti Scottish, but rural north dorset isn't Scotland and although it isn't advertised as a Scottish pub, you can tell who... More

Eaten here many times now. The menu has a Scottish twist - haggis keeps popping up here and there. Extensive choice and all freshly cooked on premises. As well as the main menu there's a list of smaller plates for £6 and a chef's £7 board that's always worth a look. A daily specials board is also on show with... More

Whether you have a Sunday carvery or a normal lunch time / evening meal you will find the food is excellent ( especially the Haggis ) very good service and always a friendly greeting. There is a large garden to the rear of the Pub, so ideal to take your dog, however, should the weather be against you, your pet... More

Do not stay here! A total rip off. I had the unfortunate experience of staying there last night with my husband and two young children. They tried to charge us £35 each to stay in the same room and £10 each for the breakfast. So for 4 of us to stay for one night in one rather dirty room with... More

We were staying in a local B & B but had arranged to meet a friend locally when we found an eaterie. We phoned and booked a table and good job too as it was very busy. Swift service, excellent food but a bit limited and unimaginitive on the specials board. Lovely large portions of well seasoned food but thought... More

It was always going to be a busy affair but the service and food were excellent and even though we were the 4pm reservation the enthusiasm and diligence were top drawer. Beer good. Well go back when it is a little less hectic but suspect we will still go back on a Sunday for the roast!

The restaurant was adequate, However, was disappointed as the previous reviews were so complimentary, Overall, the service seemed a little tired and not focussed. It reminded me of an old works canteen type service, The beer I was served had bubbles stuck on the side of the glass. I find this very off putting. I apologise if the review is... More
