Nice village pub. Food good but rather expensive. Very much a gastro-pub and not pub prices. My disabled air found it easy to get into but the timesheets not to easy to access. Staff very friendly and a small choice of ales.

The hotel is very old with a thatched roof together with small windows it made the bedroom small.

The hotel is very old and has a thatched roof with small windows which makes the rooms quite dark.

This is, as their website say, a 'chocolate box pub' in the lovely setting of Milton Abbas village. Decor is excellent and pub has a proper atmosphere and friendly 'feel' - our American friends loved it. Service was friendly and efficient and we very much enjoyed the food which, though a little on the pricey side, had both the usual... More

We stayed at this lovely country pub in delightful surroundings at short notice mid way between destinations. The accommodation was small but very quaint. The food was excellent and since then have returned to eat on several occasions. Mark - the manager is the perfect host as were the ladies working in the bar and restaurant. I would highly recommend... More

We had a meal here whilst on holiday. It rather bills itself as a gastro pub and certainly the prices and the ambiance lead you to believe you're in for a treat. Unfortunately, the food is average to poor. The service was excellent and it is a lovely setting. I can't help but think that they should either go for... More
