Lovely Sunday lunch
Nov 2021 • Family
Enjoyed a lovely late Sunday lunch. Food was great and arrived in good time. All the serving staff really friendly. The toilets were super clean and the whole environment was lovely for a family meal.

Terrific Teatime Treat!
Aug 2021
The best afternoon tea for miles around, both for quality and value. I never knew they provided this service until I happened to see another party enjoying tucking into the sandwiches, cakes and cream scones early one afternoon!
Friendly obliging staff, especially when one of us spilt a jugful of mllk during the first 2 minutes!
I will be back with other friends and members of the family.
Comfortable surroundings, quiet and spacious - a real treat as we all live in tiny homes!

Mum's Night Out
Dec 2019 • Friends
What a fabulous evening we had last night, we planned a couple of Christmas drinks so reserved an area as knew there would be 15-20 of us - after we had booked found out it was 80's night so thought great we can have a dance as well! We arrived earlier than planned to have nibbles & take advantage of the 2 4 1 offer, the staff we all so accommodating - they were very attentive & nothing was too much trouble. The DJ started his 80's set & wow did we dance, he was all great playing any song we requested - we will definitely be coming back here.

Amazing staff
Dec 2019 • Family
Popped in for a swift drink after a rather stressful trip to the hospital with our 16 month old daughter. All staff were amazing. I was a little shaken up and they were more than happy to lend an ear and with their input I relaxed somewhat. Years in the industry myself, I could tell these guys were genuinely good people and were masters of interaction with their clientele. Fast forward almost a month later to our last appointment and finally being discharged I popped in again to pass the time before catching the bus home. The landlady not only remembered me but what I had to drink too. A great sign of a professional. If I lived closer I would frequent as often as I could. A great atmosphere and truly wonderful service. Can't speak for the food but if ever in the area and I'm peckish this is where I'd head.

disappointing visit
Oct 2019
my partner amd i visited the Dorset Arms on the 13th October for a sunday lunch. we had to wait 35 minutes for our meals , which was the roast beef,when the food arrived the portions were quite small. We had two slices of roast beef each. the beef was very dry and curling up at the ends, the roast potatoes were dry and hard, as if they had been left in the oven too long to warm up. dogs are allowed on a lead, children are allowed to run about like its a creche, the onlhy good thing i can say about our visit is that the staff were polite and friendly, we wont b e makin g a second visit . 4/10

Meet up with friends
Oct 2019 • Family
We met friends here on Saturday afternoon and it’s the first time we have ever been. Thankfully our friend had reserved a table as it was fully booked.

We all enjoyed our food, me, my husband and our 3 year old all had mains, my husband had a starter also, along with a beer with the meal. It came to £33 which I think was reasonable, the food was really tasty, the starter was a bit small.

Our friends enjoyed their food, however a side dish was missed and we asked for it to be brought out, but by the time it had been cooked, they had finished their meal. The waitress was very apologetic and took it off their bill.

I think the only problem I would say was the service. It was a Saturday afternoon, they were busy, yet they only had 2 ladies working out front, who were in charge of serving at the bar, taking food orders and serving food, they seemed to be rushing about trying to do too much. But they were both lovely and friendly, so couldn’t fault that, they just seemed they were being stretched. I’m not sure if it’s always like that, having minimal staff or someone had called in sick, it wouldn’t effect me returning as we really enjoyed the food and would recommend this place to others.

There is parking on site, it’s a pay and display, however you are issued a voucher with your ticket to get a refund at the bar.

Great to hear you enjoyed your visit. I will pass on your comments to the team. We were 1 staff member down on Saturday so usually there would be 3, Hopefully see you soon.
