The piddle Inn is set in an idyllic village in the heart of Dorset and the welcome we received from the NEW owners Aileen and Clive on arrival was as warm and wonderful as the setting....And a special thank you must be said to their daughter who has the hosting skills of somebody far more mature for her years (...

In foodie Dorset it is easy to find places to eat restaurant fancy food but sometimes you just want good honest pub grub, a decent glass of wine and a friendly face behind the bar. The Piddle Inn is just that place, we visited on a damp February Friday night and found a warm welcome, good honest food including the... More

Had lunch there today. The bub must have reopened - the last time I went it was closed. Food good if a little slow. Coffee good. Table not clean though - always a bit disappointing. Staff not very experienced?

We stayed the night in this village but the pub we were in had very expensive food so we went to the Piddle Inn. We received a warm welcome and, although it was quiet, felt very comfortable there. The food was served piping hot, good quality and in huge portions. Overall we had a great night and would thoroughly recommend... More

Never before have I uttered a work on Tripadvisor, but now is the time. We visited this pub in February 2014. I joked with my husband when pulling intot he car park how empty the place was, seems I should have taken heed at my own joke. It was Friday night and it was the pub's 'Steak Night' so surely...

Myself and my husband went here today for lunch, we arrived about 1pm and there was 1 other customer (in retrospect this was a big clue) all the other pubs in the area were very busy! The 3 teenage members of staff were complaining about working! We had to ask for a menu and was informed that the roast was... More

My family received a very warm welcome in this delightful gem of a pub that I discovered by chance 6 months ago, Mario and Jojo pulled out all the stops for Christmas lunch, and we were treated Royally! It made for a very successful day with good vibes all round. I wholeheartedly would recommend a visit when in this part... More
