Pleasantly surprised

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

This Inn, recently refurbished, with a much needed lick of paint and carpet retains an old world charm, wide choice of food - sadly I hankered after the huge pork ribs friends had ordered even though my dish was adequate. The food is very good value with a wide variety on offer. Glad to see that this pub in its... More

We visited The Giant twice whilst holidaying in Cerne Abbas. The first time we had a drink with the intention of checking it out for food later in the week. We were told the Inn was newly refurbished and it did look very fresh and smart if a little soulless. The lady behind the bar was very chatty but there... More

I love this pub so was delighted when the refurbishment gave it a fresh look whilst retaining its charm and character. Still a proper pub atmosphere but the food has definitely gone up a level - great quality but still really good value. We've eaten there twice in the last couple of weeks and every dish we've had was lovely.... More

We were passing through Cerne Abbas - mid walk - and stopped in another pub in the village. Disappointed by the ales on draft there we thought we'd try The Giant Inn. Greeted by the effervescent barmaid - Alice - she happily gave us more than generous tastings of the local brews which allowed us to choose the pints we... More

10 of us descended on The Giant Inn for a family meal. A long table had been reserved away from the bar and we had plenty of room to feel at home. The staff were very helpful and explained what was on the menu. The menu wasn't the most extensive I've ever seen but it did us fine. I had... More
