Visited early evening and the pub was quite busy. Nice atmosphere. Good choice of real ale and a selection of bottled beers. Not a great choice of cider, only two available and the wine was very expensive.

Stumbled across this little hidden gem in the centre of Dorcester. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and there was a great relaxed atmosphere. They offered a great range of real ales.
