Work's Party

With a background in Catering I know how difficult large party food can be , so it was with some trepidation that I went out for my work's Christmas dinner.

This pub has recently been refurbished but what they really need to do is change manager,so come on marstons surely you can do better than this man who is a liability to your... More

As a near neighbour of this venue, we are always surprised by the amount of cars in its car park. Many cars usually mean popular venue for food and drink. Whilst they have done a good job with the redecoration of this Marstons pub once again the food has let it down. Purely for its convenience we popped in for... More

I took my parents here whilst they were down in Dorset for a holiday. The last time we ate here the food and service were much better. It is in need of an update, which I have been told is happening. The food was not great but ok, the ham with eggs was very fatty and my parents hardly touched... More

Its over a year since I last visited the Spa,when I found it very good. Since then my daughter reported that it had declined and was no where as good as it had been. Since The Beefeater was full we decided to try The Spa again. First indications were not so good. Plenty of spaces in the car park where... More
