Visited yesterday. What a lovely place, cosy but uptodate. Lovely staff and locals. No Royston Vasey feeling here. Live music on Great. Viewed the rooms and they were up to par with the some much more expensive rooms that we have used. Great pub

The Fiddleford Inn Has had several owners and differing business emphasis over the last twenty years or so which has reflected the changes in society and the economy. Senior management and myself had a joint birthday dinner there last night, our first culinary visit since the pub was given an extensive re-vamp. I know some who know it say that... More

Fantastic Sunday lunch, the beef was cooked to perfection, great roast potatoes and very tasty vegetables served with a lovely Yorkshire pudding. One of the best Sunday roasts we've eaten. A lovely pub that's been refurbished and it looks great, several different ales and beers and peroni too.

We used to love walking from Sturminster to The Fidfleford inn with the children as they had a play area, for the children and we would sit in the garden and the children could enjoy themselves. It gradually got worse and then was taken over. We thought we would try it again although there are no facilities to attract families... More

Our first visit to this recently reorganised pub was impressive. The new landlords and their daughter and staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was beautifully cooked and presented with a really interesting menu. Everyone is settling in but we found the service exemplary. There is good car parking space and a large garden. I understand that there... More

Dropped into this quiet inn for lunch. Because no booking was made we were allowed to stay if we were quick. Sat alone outside and our order was promptly taken to speed us on our way. Coffee served in a unique manner... in the saucer rather than the cup! Food would have been delicious when served to our outside table... More

Landlord and lady are welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay a pleasure. Those looking for 5 star glitz stay away!!! This is a treasure of a place that is warm and friendly without all the horrible trappings of a seen-to-be-doing place. Food is good pub food and they will accommodate special diets. The staff are friendly,... More

The Fiddleford has had it's ups and downs over the years but I would encourage people to visit. As someone who regularly eats out sampling many of the public houses in and around the Blandford area, I would probably rate the food served here as the best. Well cooked, fresh and very large portions are not the only surprise. The... More
