We spent 2 nights at the Poachers Inn and found it an ideal base for exploring the area. The room was clean and well appointed. Proprietor and staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Full choice of breakfast. Restaurant and bar very pleasant and menu choices good. Never a problem if asked to 'modify' a meal, e.g. new potatoes and salad... More

We stayed in a standard double room and had a good nights sleep. The bedding was nice and fresh and the bed was very comfy. The bathroom was clean and functional but the... More

Just had a lovely stay here . Room was very comfortable ( rm 4 ) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had an evening meal which was great as was the breakfast.

Rooms are really clean and comfy, we stayed in the winter but imagine in the summer it is even nicer with the little swimming pool. There is also a very pretty little stream that runs between the hotel and the car park. The staff can't... More

Stayed here for one night, with my dog! Room and bed were clean and comfortable, and a very good breakfast. The bathroom could have done with updating but was perfectly fine . Obviously dog friendly. And beer was good too. Was very reasonably priced

This was our second visit to this delightful pub and we were not disappointed. Really cosy pub. Great food. Rooms are really clean and comfy. The staff can't to enough for you and nothing is too much trouble. Sarah is a great hostess and we were made very welcome. Thank you The Poachers Inn.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Poachers for a night after a visit to Dorset to see family and friends. This is the best value accommodation I have ever stayed in. Sarah, the owner, worked very hard serving in the bar in the evening and then up early to serve breakfast!

went to the poachers for an evening meal and was not disappointed. Menu was varied and an excellent specials board left you spoilt for choice. Meal was fine quality and well presented. Staff were attentive and friendly. A very pleasant evening was enjoyed and I would recommend it to anyone.

Spent an enjoyable 3 days here with friends. the food was amazing , more like an upmarket restaurant rather than a pub. We stayed in a little chalet like accomodation which was adequate. Extra heating was provided which was very useful. The staff were friendly. We would use this on again.
