Excellent food

We have eaten at this restaurant many times but on our visit in July we had an amazing meal, there were 14 of us and everyone remarked on the excellent food, service and very helpful staff. Great pub, beer and food. One of the best in the area

Welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Great food, excellent beer, what's not to like? If I had to make a complaint, it would be that I had to walk around stooped nearly double, but as I'm 6'8" the problem is entirely my own!

Lovely atmosphere, good selection of local real ales, good, friendly service for excellent food. As a bonus, a great live band, "The Dinner Ladies" - well worth a listen if you see them around the Dorset area.

Luckily there was a cancellation when we arrived and we was pleasantly surprised at the welcome. We needed a hearty meal for four as we had been camping and three got what they needed however one poor sole ! Chose the place and got enough food to fill a Ramakin jar ! Added to that the chef had put the... More

A last minute trip to Tyneham village, thanks to the weather forecast of rain being completely incorrect, required a lunch stop. A quick phone call produced an offer of a table at 12.30 or 15.00 meant we gratefully accepted the former. Bear in mind this was Bank Holiday Sunday and there was every opportunity for the staff to be stressed... More

We popped in last night for a swift drink whilst waiting to pick up some people from the open-air cinema at the castle. All the lights were on, doors were open, it was 22:20, walked into the bar, and out popped the underling behind the bar who stated 'WE'RE SHUT'. No polite apology, no sorry, no kiss my ar$e, nothing.... More

Walked in from the rain to find a lovely pub with a comfy bar and more formal restaurant rooms. Our dog was very welcome, bowl of water arrived at the table for her without asking! Free Wifi is available. Food was quite quick to arrive and very good. Good sized portions, slightly smaller than normal which meant we could all... More

Very impressed with the quality of the food here. They offered 3 vegan options for my partner and I had probably the best hanger steak I've ever eaten. Kids burger and chips was home made and great quality too. Thoroughly recommend stopping here!

We had one night stopover in the suite which had 2 double bedrooms and a lounge area and a large bathroom. We booked a table in the restaurant and the food was beautiful. Would definitely go back!
