We visited the Black Dog for Sunday lunch. Nice big place with lots of outside seating and a lovely play area for kids. The inside decor was a bit bland but everywhere including the Ladies was bright and clean. I had the roast pork and it was a delicious plate of home cooked food. Other half had scampi and chips...

Stayed one night with two rooms. Good bedding and kindly staff. Super breakfast and accommodating landlady with our small children. Only negative slight smoke smell in bedroom. If you are looking for peaceful setting this is not for you as on main road. Goodish value and no deposit required only card held in advance.

A really welcoming village pub with good quality food, friendly service and exceptional value for money. The sandwiches at lunch time are substantial, served on excellent bread with a nice salad and crisp accompaniment. A great place to stop just outside Dorchester.

There is a really nice beer garden and an excellent play frame for the kids to play on, it has been really well designed and you can keep an eye on them very easily. The food was disappointing, my lasagne was swimming in grease and no one in our group really enjoyed their meal.

Lovely room, very clean and comfortable. Evening Dinner and breakfast were very good. The Specials board was extensive and we really enjoyed our evening meal. Lovely draught cider! The cooked English breakfast also very nice. We will come back.

We stayed at the Black Dog for two nights whilst touring the jurassic coast. The room we were allocated was huge and very well presented. The huge comfortable bed was complemented by quality solid oak furniture ( no veneer in here ). The shower in the well appointed bathroom was also large with good water pressure. The cooked breakfast was... More

Great information provided over the phone and reserved table On arrival weather had turned out nice and so we asked to sit outside. No problem at all. Lovely garden with well laid out children's play area. Between us we had two kids meals (lovely homemade... More

Not too sure I should tell you just how good this is for I want to become a regular and do not want to be told they are fully booked! We have a holiday home nearby and popped in for a meal and suddenly found we went three times in just 10 days. It is really excellent. The car park... More
