The pork with five beans was excellent, but we did not like the fact that a member of staff played with a dog and also served food. This does not seem hygienic

Excellent quality food. We spied the place en route to The Springfield Country Hotel prior to our trip to Monkey World and decided it was really convenient as we wouldn't have to worry about parking. Lovely picturesque building. I had Steak & Tanglefoot Pie which was very satisfying and filling and my other half had the vegetarian lasagne which was... More

Went in for a early meal on the way home as we hadn't eaten in here for some years. Bar staff seemed friendly & we were able to choose from available tables. My husband had a starter of breaded mushrooms which were served promptly and was nicely presented. I chose a main course from the specials menu (pan fried lamb... More

Food - just about acceptable. Service - good. Goat's cheese lasagne, thin and shriveled. Fish - a bit soggy. Expensive given the quality of the food.

A friend and I ordered the chicken pie, which cost £11.95. This price is scandalous for what eventually arrived; a pie that was so dry and solid that my knife would not cut through it. I went no further and returned it to the kitchen. When asked if I'd like a replacement, I replied: "not really. If this is what... More

We do take all comments very seriously and very personally so we will be making every effort to prevent such mistakes being made again. We have sold... More

Been coming here for years on annual stays in Dorset, and have reviewed it before. Visited on 3 occasions this time: Sun 3 Aug : A total shambles. Table for 4 reserved was in wrong place, service was almost non-existent and food, when it eventually arrived after over an hour, was ironically overcooked (though edible). Manager did apologise as I... More
