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.

My family and I visited the Martyrs Inn on Sunday as we live so close to the village. The carvery looked too good to miss so we all dug in! The choice was beef and gammon and it was delicious. I was later told by one of the friendly staff that all their meat is locally sourced and that with... More

We had decided to meet here (halfway between Exeter and Portsmouth) with some friends we met 3 years ago.....what a good choice it turned out to be. The food was really delicious (and a bonus was that we got a large camembert each instead of a small one because they had run out of small ones ..... oops diet here... More

The Tolpuddle Martyrs were the farm workers around 1830 that went on strike because of bad working conditions and pay. The whole town is well known for this piece of history and so the pub is worth a visit. Food was very good and price was good. Clean and service was good. Google The Tolpuddle Martyres, then enjoy your beer

My mum and I enjoyed a very nice lunch here. The manager and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The inn is in the historic village of Tolpuddle, on a quiet road. There is plenty of outdoor seating, which we took advantage of on a sunny day. The food was of a high standard and reasonably priced. Overall, a positive... More

Wow! I am not usually one to write reviews but I was compelled to following my curry night experience at the Martyrs inn. The new menu they have on offer is both fantastic in flavour and my purse is still happy at the end of it! As a family of 6, eating out can be expensive, stressful and somewhat comparable... More
