What a contrast from the previous day brilliant food and service

We could not fault the food nor the service they were very helpful and delightful. The location was really good overlooking the ducks feeding and children playing by the water.

Large portions of fish and chips for visitors (although the chips are so thickly cut, they might be saute potatoes). The ribeye steak is not a good option. Lots of gristle and chine. Presumably to hit the 10oz weight stated on the menu.

We were lucky that we got a really sunny day so we sat outside overlooking the river. The superfood roll and cheese and onion rolls were excellent and came with fries. Reasonably priced too. Would recommend.

You could not ask for a more beautiful location than the Old granary . Situated on the old market quay right by the rivers banks this old granary commands a view of the lovely Dorset country side . The staff are very friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is reasonable and the outside seating is on two levels... More

I stayed in this place some years ago when it did rooms and was a lovely old hotel offering fine dining and character accommodation. This time we went for dinner and found that it had been taken over by a chain and 'tarted up' for a more modern market. Disappointing.

Very good, prompt and friendly service. Comfortable surroundings and location by the river. Several dishes already taken off the menu and it was only 12am. However, VERY expensive menu!!! I had eggs Florentine which for £7 consisted of 2 eggs and 1 muffin and such a small amount of spinach it was barely noticeable. The sauce was delicious and the... More

Had pre-booked lunch on Sunday for four. Three out of four happy with food, chicken pie disappointing. Slow service. Noticed a lot of uncleared empty tables - a sign of poorly managed staff. Lovely building and quite interesting menu.

Perfectly nice setting by the river, and pleasant enough inside. We asked for the menu when we arrived and ordered three fish and chips and one chicken and chips, we really only wanted a baguette or something but nothing like that was available on the menu. The food was fairly nice even if the wait was a bit long. As... More

Managed to get a nice table next to the open patio doors overlooking the river. Several items not on the menu, but at least we were told about them before ordering. We were delighted with our food, the fish and chips was fabulous as usual, as were the pea fritters. The service was very good, attentive without being intrusive and... More

Stopped here for dinner on a sunny Wednesday evening, hadn't booked beforehand but had no problem finding a table for two. Staff were attentive and helpful, and I must say the food matched the service. The falafel and haloumi burger was a particular highlight - something I had not tried previously but would happily order again. The restaurant itself is... More
