Arrived at 5.15 as we had tickets for show at Tivoli Wimborne. Though chef didn't start until 5.30 we were welcomed and asked to sit and choose from menu that has a good variety of choices. My pork belly was excellent and friend enjoyed her red meat burger. All staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely come again and recommend... More

Very disappointed. The tea came with the milk in a huge jug (1 pint size!), the crockery did not match, the sandwiches were huge and placed on a large platter. The cakes and scones claggy and tasteless. Where was the 3 tier stand?? Would I recommend, definitely not even if it was free.

What a horrible review. Our afternoon tea china is a mixture of teasets from the 40's and 50's and we think its great that all the china is a mix match. Our cakes and scones are homemade and our sandwiches are made to order. We move the crusts and cut them into three. How small do you want them !!!.... More

Looking for a decent country Pub to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Arrived and found booking not in diary, glazed looks from staff left me wondering whether we had become invisible. However found us a table, so all sorted. Cant really moan, food of reasonable standard for the price, just wasnt exceptional - hence average scoring. Would go again, but probably... More

I am surprised you think our food and service is average, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Unfortunately the review is not constructive as it does not highlight how we can improve so we can meet your expectations. However I am pleased you will return. I look forward to meeting you on your next visit. More

Went on cycling trip with wife and passed this pub on way. Decided to stop and have some lunch. Ordered two liver and bacon dishes and they were great. All ingredients were very good and the mash was to die for. Liver lovely also bacon which was nice and thick. Will definitely be back. Also outside areas were superb. All... More

Interesting menu, particularly the smoked cod steak and the delicious steam and kidney pie. Dogs welcome in part of the restaurant, a bowl of water and boneo provided soon after we arrived! Attentive friendly staff.

Having moved to the area six months ago, we visited this pub for the first time this week. It has a lovely rural location with ample parking while, inside it is welcoming with a pleasant décor and well spaced tables. My wife had the sea bass for her main course which she described as excellent. I had chicken with creamy... More

A good location. Three of us had the good old pub standby of ham egg and chips. We have all had far better. There was no garnish whatsoever and the ham was pretty mediocre and the portion size certainly not overgenerous. The fourth meal, grilled salmon with side salad and sauté potatoes was very good. All in all, just good... More

Absolutely amazing afternoon tea. Best we've ever had anywhere - and we've certainly had a few!! Beautifully fresh choice of sandwiches and cakes + scones, jam and cream - heavenly.
