Found the pub by chance when taking a detour to learn about the famous 'Martyrs'. The lunch we had was excellent. Great menu, great food, great service and great value. We selected the roasted vegetable tart, steak and potato pie, and the cheese platter, with local cheeses.

We chose the pub for a family rendezvous point (we came from Cornwall and Sussex). The staff were very accommodating as we stayed in the resteraunt area for most of the afternoon. The pub was moderately busy and staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The food and atmosphere was very adequate. Although not likely to be a regular, we would... More

The inn is in great location for learning about the start of the trade union movement. The food is of great quality, with a varied menu. I visited as a small group on tour. They are friendly towards all on the group and happy to help and accommodate a group with a minimum of fuss. I will be visiting again.... More

After visiting the Tolpuddle Martyr Museum we decided to pop in to the nearby pub for a beer and bite to eat. The Badger ales being served at the bar were as expected and while busy, the service was prompt, polite and cheerful. My wife initially selected a smoked salmon & prawn salad and I went for the chicken, prawn... More

We came back after 4 weeks to have lunch with friends and to celebrate my friends birthday. The Martys Inn were fantastic, warm welcome, happy and friendly staff. The bar went to great effort to provide us a with a fresh home made birthday cake, despite the chef prepping for a wedding! I can not believe they went the extra... More

We stopped here on our way back from Cornwall as we were en route to Bournemouth. It is about 12 miles from Poole and off the main drag, I prefer to map read and not use a sat nav and I decided that Tolpuddle was a good name and must have at leat one pub. On the way in to... More

We visited the Inn for the Monday Curry night where there are a range of curries served for £9.95 a head on an as much as you can eat basis. We hadn't booked and a table of 16 had just been admitted. Our extremely friendly and accommodating waitress suggested that we should take a table immediately and to get startled... More

We were staying in Tolpuddle and decided to visit on Curry night! An excellent choice, great value and a good variety of dishes. One member of our party needed gluten free, and this was not a problem. She was able to eat most dishe after our waitress checked with the chef. Good service and pleasant surroundings.
