Went for lunch at this pub and really enjoyed it. Staff were attentive and friendly; the menu and specials board offered a wide range to choose from. The food arrived quickly, was hot, well presented and tasty. Surprised at some of the poorer reviews. Mine was a good experience.

Great family run pub off the A351, Awesome food. Highly recommend the fish and chips. Very large portions. We stopped here on our way back from Swanage and had a great meal. Perfect stop for anyone headed from the coast back into town. Very friendly and social staff, great people! Check it out!

Lovely well run pub. Staff very accommodating and welcoming. It was a beautiful sunny day, so that made the short visit even more so.

Booked for Sunday lunch. Food took an hour to appear. Just plain awful. Service poor, food rubbish. To add insult to injury we were overcharged by 25%. Took two attempts to get the right amount and still no apology. (They had charged someone else's drinks to our bill). Would we go back? Well, would you?

We are sorry that you were disappointed in your recent visit to our pub last Sunday. We were very busy on that day and served well over 100 roast dinners. we received many compliments on our freshly carved roasts and many customers were repeat visitors. We always prioritise tables that have booked over customers that walk in. Whilst at busy... More
