Exactly what we were looking for. Quiet , quirky and good unconplicated cooking. Seabass was moist and pie was rich. Definatly worth a look.

An excellent meal in a pleasant pub. We ate in the bar but there is also a restaurant. Very relaxed with helpful and polite serving staff. We arrived lateish but were still served. Meals are not over the top but are very tasty and well cooked, good vegetables a and salad, portion size is very adequate and very reasonably priced... More

Having eaten at "The Horse" several times in the last few months, we have had a quick lunch, a Sunday Roast and a meal from the recent Christmas menu. Each one was excellent, delicious, quality, home cooked food served by friendly smiling staff. My partner is a chef so our expectations are always high and " The Horse" meets these... More

Had Sunday lunch at this pub whilst staying in sturminster Newton for long weekend. Definitely the best pub in the area. We had a table in the bar as the restaurant side was fully booked. All four of us had the roast beef and it was all excellent, all the veg was cooked perfect and roast beef nice and tender.... More

After a long walk along the River Stour, it was a welcoming pub to grab a light lunch. They serve roast on Sundays but are happy to serve you with a starter if you only want a small meal. A real traditional pub with hops hanging from the rafters.

We arrived at the car park before the pub was open, the landlady very kindly opened a few minutes early so that we could go inside. This was our first time to this pub but it felt like we were regulars as the staff were so friendly. The meal we had was cooked to perfection, We also tried their own... More

Varied menu with good sized portions, always a cage option which is a huge bonus. The home brewed ales are a must! Service is always friendly and welcoming, well worth the visit!
