“Great pub food, give it a try.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Have visited this pub before. Had starters - rarebit with smoked cheddar and vegetable spring rolls. Mains - gorgeous, stacked steak burger with fresh salad and beef and red wine stew with buttery mash. Nice selection of desserts and friendly service.

“Better than we thought”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Have visited Swanage on many occasions but have NEVER called in here.Maybe it was the under inspiring look of the outside but we were mistaken not to have looked before.A pleasant dining room attached to the pub bar with a varied menu.Everything from Belly Pork to traditional and Fresh Fish.Landlady was lovely and could not do enough to please.Well worth a visit.We did not reserve a table but it would probably be advisable to do so.
