We used our red letter day voucher that was a Christmas present and what a wonderful treat! We had room 21 that was big, we had a sofa that was very comfortable to lounge on whilst we watched Hull v Manchester Utd on the iPad, whilst drinking a stunning bottle of Macon village....great wifi! Our evening meal was absolutely delicious... More

We stayed for 2 nights. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was very comfortable and clean, a good bed and nice fluffy towels. Breakfast was very good as was Dinner and at a good price. Room access was good and plenty of free parking.

We stayed last weekend, located not far out of Dorchester, but a world away! Very reasonably priced B&B, rooms clean & comfy, bathroom had lots of hot water, great dinner menu, food reasonably priced too & excellent quality, breakfast great. Staff friendly, plenty of sights nearby so would make a good base to explore from. Would definitely recommend.

I booked this restaurant / pub to celebrate my husbands 65th birthday. As we come from Surrey, and were renting a farmhouse for his birthday weekend, I had to take a chance on booking a venue. Luckily we had reason to be in the area the week before, so popped in and was not disappointed. We were greeted like long... More

Lovely pub, rooms nice and clean with a great powerful shower and deep bath for relaxing after walking all day. The food is really good and at resonable prices. Very friendly staff. Some really lovely walks in this area. Will certainly be returning some time soon.

Stayed here one night as a single person travelling with dog. We received a warm welcome & my room was very clean & comfortable. Dinner & breakfast (which was kindly served in the bar so that my dog could keep me company) was tasty & made with good quality ingredients. My only minor gripe would be that wifi is only... More

We booked a couple of nights at short notice. This is still a country pub with quite a lot of rooms - ours was a standard room on the first floor of the rear extension. Yes, it was a bit frayed at the edges in some respects (and it seems that the concept of duvets hasn't yet reached rural Dorset)... More

We were greeted by the Landlady who didn't seem too pleased about us booking a deal via Red letter days! We were not informed of breakfast times or where the restaurant was situated on arrival. The breakfast is an one hour window between 8.30 and 9.30 which is not very flexible for a Sunday on weekend break. Good breakfast but... More

Our room was unclean, dated & cramped, accessed up metal fire escape stairs. Checked in around 2pm & was very disappointed with the room. We had no internet access/Wifi in the room. We were woken at 11.45pm, by the people below us who you could hear as clear as day, as they argued and talked to each other, all the... More
