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.

Friend and I went for evening meal as it is central to both of us. Had heard mixed reviews, but think there have been a few different people running this pub over the last few years. I had the ham egg and chips, the ham was thick cut and plenty of it. My friend had the cajun salmon which she... More

The new people in the pub have settled in and are very popular with the village. The food is very good. Don't expect a gastro pub menu but do expect a plate full of wholesome fare. The food is served promptly and politely. The prices are very reasonable. Please go and try it out. I am sure you won't be... More

We were staying in a cottage in the village and decided to have a an evening in the local pub. The food was ok and the service was reasonable. The people in the pub were welcoming to visitors and the ambiance was satisfactory. All in all the food was good for a small village pub but nothing out of the... More
