When we were planning a short holiday in the South of England we wanted a suitable base from which to explore some of the riches of the vast historical and cultural heritage of Dorset, Devon and Wiltshire as well as the spectacular and varied scenery to be found in these counties. By chance we discovered The Piddle Inn in the... More

The Piddle Inn is a sociable, local pub / restaurant that is completely worth the distance from Weymouth or nearby Dorchester to dine in. They serve locally sourced food that is cooked to perfection, there are a number of choices on the menu and the ambiance adds to an all round unmissable experience.

After a long walk around the area we decided to find a pub that served food and stopped at the Piddle Inn. The beer was good and the service very friendly. We shared the pate starter which was good enough for 2 and then had the chicken and apple casserole which was really nice. Definitely worth a visit and we... More

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...
