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

Well cooked variety of vegetables and traditional sides with a chice of four meats, good choice of homemade desserts, and excellent value. Very busy between noon and 1.30pm, but thins out considerably after that for those who prefer a late lunch. Service good. Only complaint is that it's hard to park as it's so busy!

Excellent food and superior service. They even packed us a cheese board to take home for later!. Would recommend to anyone. Enough variety on the menu to keep most people happy and tasty Vegetarian options.The Eton Mess was particularly lovely too.

We travel here from Sherborne as the Sunday carvery is excellent. You need to book as it is so busy and popular. The service and quality of food is superb and there is a good choice of food even on a Sunday. The carvery is lovely with a choice of at least 4 meats and you can have a slice... More

We have driven past this pub many times but never ventured in before. The decoration inside was not what I was expecting, it was very light and contemporary. The staff were very freindly and showed us to a table and took our drink order while we looked at the menu. There was a very wide choice of food and prices... More
