Nice dog friendly pub, large car park, friendly staff and good food, well worth a visit. We had steaks and both agreed that they, along with the pepper sauce, were excellent. We got there at 6pm on a Friday (opening time) and were very lucky to get a table, so do try to book in advance.

My boyfriend and I were staying in the area and googled 'Best Restaurants in Axminster'. This restaurant appeared and we chose it based on location and menu choice. The restaurant did not disappoint, the staff were so welcoming and had put out some birthday decorations for my Boyfriends birthday which was lovely and very thoughtful. The food was delicious and...

Wife had Rib eye and gave it 10/10, daughter Sweet & Sour Chicken (8/10) and I had the Pork in breadcrumbs which in truth was probably the weakest of the three meals and was quite bland. Good starters, overall menu very good and... More

Another tasty meal at this very reliable pub. I tried a new option this time, and wasn't disappointed by the beetroot and goats cheese risotto. Other diners had a generous scampi dinner and an appealing chicken in barbecue sauce. My only suggestion would be a bit more originality and diversity in the puddings, although the cheesecake and tiramisu were both... More

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we dropped into Hunter's Lodge for an impromptu lunch today. Luckily we made this decision early as it soon filled up. It is an unassuming pub situated on the busy Charmouth Road. It has a jolly interior and most accommodating staff. The steaks that we ordered were full of flavour with delicious sauce... More

Stopped her twice for lunch while we were on holiday, Staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. if you are looking for a good value for money then you will get this, the size of the meals are on the large size and are all freshly cooked so there is normally a wait for them but the staff tell you how...
