We stayed very close to this beautiful inn so couldn't wait to try there. When we arrived one evening without booking we asked for a table of three. It was clearly very busy so didn't really expect to get a seat. We didn't but the welcome wasn't great so left feeling a bit funny. We vowed to go back and... More

We booked a table for 6pm, arrived on time, to be told there was a 30 minute wait on food - not a problem or unusual. At 7pm we had not received our order. Following some polite chasing, we finally received our dinner at 7.20pm, long after my children's patience had evaporated.OK, so it was very busy, but the prices... More

Such a shame that the Meeter greeter lady was so rude. We turned up on bank holiday Saturday ( so understand it was busy and she was stressed ) but she was so rude to me and one of our party. She was clearly not coping we sat on the bar waiting for a table and were sat near to... More

We reserved a table for 8pm, but the staff couldn't get the previous diners to vacate the table till 8.20pm, not a good start, but the menu is good with great choices, good selection of beers and wines. Food is well prepared and presented, lovely atmosphere in an olde worlde setting - recommended.

Although this is off the beaten track, this stunning country pub is humming with activity...and all of it's good. No, great, the service was polite, smooth and effortless, the food was well portioned and well priced and best in the area. The pub itself, (although spacious) felt cosy and seriously inviting. So, good we're off there again for dinner tonight.

Had a lovely meal here on our last night of our holiday to Dorset. Very friendly staff, the mini pies and mags was delicious! It is always busy so keep that in mind - we booked a table via telephone! Only draw back was the kids area - one big swing maybe there could be more!

This is a bit a of pain to get too - down a narrow road that everyone seems to be travelling down........we soon found out why. The pub is a Hall & Woodhouse chain, which we soon discovered are one of the best in the local, far ahead of the norm for a regional pub chain. Given the location, how... More

So my sister in law tried to book on a Friday evening, for 7 of us, explaining that they had 2 young children, and asked for 7.30. She was told it would be better to book for 8pm so we did. Upon arrival, we were surprised to find we needed £5 for the car park (you get it back if... More
