Very disappointed with food . I had the slow cooked lamb with vegetables which was a special on the board. The meat was tough and greasy . The vegetables comprised of a few watery carrot slices and one wet broccoli head . Very tasteless .Avoid

The new landlord had only taken over less than a week ago, so it was so impressive to have a varied menu to choose from. Lovely pub food and very well priced, big portions too and kids menu.

A cosy and welcoming pub but sadly lacking in customers which is a shame....with more support it could be the heart of the village but sadly it seems somewhat forgotten about. Use it or lose it...no good moaning when it's gone!

We were staying at The Old George B&B opposite the pub and eating in the pub meant not needing a driver. Really good pub food at very reasonable prices. It was busy with local customers on the Monday and Tuesday nights we were there, so seems to be popular. We understand that it's about to change tenants and that they... More

Average menu, no parking, poorly kept beer. Pretty average welcome and no atmosphere but maybe it's better when it's further into the summer season

I just wanted to say that I went to the community pub as part of a group from Broadwindsor Care Home. We had a night out for the first time in years and it was a wonderful evening. Good food and a wonderful atmosphere. We will now use the pub regularly. I would recommend it.

We didn't eat here as we were staying locally but the owners, staff and locals are very friendly. They have an amazing dog called Rebel and welcomed our two dogs as well. By the end of the week, we were reacted like part oft eh community. A great local pub.
