This is a pub with a difference. The owners have built up a business founded on giving customers an excellent menu totally unhurried. You are not rushed to make way for more people. They will only take in as many people as they can cope comfortably with. The staff are calm and very pleasant, the food above average reasonably priced.

This is our favourite place to eat when we come and stay at Charmouth. It is always a place that is welcoming. The food is always a excellent standard. The menu caters for everyone. The puddings are to die for. It is always a hard decision on which one to choose. If you are in the area don't bother going... More

We stayed just around the corner from this 'pub', it is so beautiful and the people running it are fantastic. We had great service along with great food and their chocolate fudge is to die for! :) x

Very well patronised venue, and not surprising as the quality and quantity of food is exceptional Service was prompt and friendly My partner chose a mushroom omelette, and I chose The Ploghman's platter. The omelette was very good, and the ploughman's platter would have fed the horses as well as the ploughman! Everything was fresh, and the pickled onions crisp,... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday night. Good pub food and decent portion sizes. They even did us a carry out of pud, because we were too full at the time to eat it, but it looked so good. Top job.
