the giant inn has been my local for 12 years, but this great pub has lost leadership, the bar staff are great but the locals have given up on the pub, because the landlord is never seen behind the bar, it needs direction, that said the food has improved and is more varied, shame the locals have moved on

We have eaten at the Giant Inn 3 or 4 times recently,mainly lunches, when on a walk and it is always a welcoming, friendly place to stop. The food is excellent and very good value for money especially compared to most other pubs in the area, some of which charge ridiculous prices. Proper pub food at its best and good... More

We liked everything about this family oriented pub. There was a lot of activity, laughing, and conversation but it was not noisy or overbearing. The food was delicious and plentiful and both staff and other patrons were friendly and helpful. A great place to enjoy an evening meal.

Proper local pub with a mix of friendly locals and traditional pub fare. We had the Game Casserole from the specials board and the Gammon Steak from the menu. Both were excellent and good value for money. Not a restaurant pretending to be a pub but a real pub. Brilliant

Situated on the main street of Cerne, on the right, the Giant has been a pub for nearly 120 years, Serving good, honest English pub fare (pies, mash, fish etc) it is well worth a visit if you are looking for a good wholesome meal, and well kept beer.
