Warm welcome, very clean and lovely decor. The food was excellent and good value for money, and I took my two dogs in after eating (2 and 11wks).

A warm welcome for us and the dogs, a well cooked and very tasty Sunday lunch, accompanied by good beer. Cerne Abbas is a delightful village.

We arrived to a friendly welcome albeit quiet due to time of year - great lunchtime food in peaceful surroundings. In actual fact stayed longer than we'd anticipated due to the hospitality.

We were staying in a cottage in Cerne Abbas, with out 8 month old puppy. We are here a couple of times and were very impressed. Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere and staff were friendly and also happy to have well behaved puppy. Food was of good high quality and delicious. Good selection of wines and local beers also.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here. Liked the fact the more popular dishes are offered in two sizes! The staff were very pleasant and helpful - as they even charged up my husband's phone whilst we had lunch.

Hadn't planned on this visit, but really enjoyable restaurant/pub, good food, good atmosphere and lovely owners. There was a dog there, but he was totally friendly and no bother whatsoever!

We have just enjoyed a lovely fish & chip meal, fresh fish cooked in beer batter was lovely and you had a choice of a small meal too. The homemade Bailey's cheesecake was glorious as well as the strawberry cheesecake. A great meal competively priced too with excellent service.

We hadn't visited this pub since its refurbishment and decided to do so for an evening pub meal. The place looks much brighter and cleaner since its refurbishment and the staff are welcoming and friendly when you can reach them; this is still a drinker's pub and because so many of them sit around the bar, you feel awkward trying...

We pre-booked lunch for sixteen of us as our lunch stop on our annual friends' walking weekend. We were made really welcome and despite the large party, the food came out really quickly. A great selection of local ales, local knowledge and the ability to provide cashback when paying by card. Lovely welcoming staff and super clean sparkly toilets too.... More

We came across the Giant Inn by chance as we were visiting the area and decided to visit somewhere traditional and not part of a chain for lunch. After quickly walking in and out of another pub in the street we came across the Giant Inn. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. The food choice was extensive... More
