Went for a farewell posh dinner with 5 friends on a Wednesday on recommendation from 2 of the friends that had been before. Arrived and met everyone in the bar for drinks and nibbles. We chose a three course menu at 36 pounds which had plenty of choice. Went for Scallops followed by Beef Wellington - both attracted surcharges. Attentive... More

We are very lucky to have Plumber manor on our door step, the food is excellent, and the price very reasonable, for the quality of food we get served every time we eat there. The wine list is vast, as is the bar, which is plentiful with your favourite tipple!! The Atmosphere is great with family members looking after you,... More

After reading some awful reviews of the place I was concerned about the place for my fathers 80th Birthday but after arriving and walking through the doors we were all greeted with a warm welcome. Owners and staff can't do enough to make your stay a memorable one . It is obviously an old house with loads of history and... More

We took a large party of golfers for three nights to Dorset and Plumber Manor was an ideal venue. The welcome was greatly appreciated and we were looked after with enthusiasm and professional care. Ok, the bedrooms are "faded glory" but importantly our whole stay was relaxed and easy going in a delightful setting. Breakfasts and Dinners were just what... More

We stayed here as our friends were getting married close by. Plumber Manor is a beautiful old house and fits in perfectly with the local area. Unfortunately the rooms are a little tired and could do with a makeover. The breakfast was lovely, although you do have to be up early to make it (8.30 - 9.30) which isn't easy... More

Plumber Manor is a large 16/17 century Dorset gentleman's house that has been in the same family for all this time. It's location and the building are lovely. The branding of the Manor is a restaurant with rooms and the style is a very country house with visitors treated as family guests. This may not be to everyone's taste including... More

The exterior of the hotel and the reception rooms are lovely. Our room was spacious but very tired. The bathroom was very small with terrible plumbing. The toilet took 15 minutes to refill and the shower made a noise like a vacuum cleaner. The wallpaper in the bathroom was stained. It is a nice place to go for a special... More

The location,the setting, the staff and the management were all excellent. (even the resident dogs could not be better behaved). The gardens are unbelievably beautiful. The restaurant more than lived up to its reputation Thank you for having us.
