Don't be deceived - this pub punches above its weight. The standard of food, - portion size, taste and price is excellent. The menu is varied. Visited with an Australian friend, his French partner and the Australian friends ageing parents. Foods ordered varied from rack of baby ribs ( they could hardly fit on the plate), to hake, to dressed... More

Called in here after climbing the hill to see the Cerne Giant. As early evening said did not normally serve sandwiches but as we didn't want big meal, they very kindly did make us some sandwiches, which were freshly made, nicely presented and much appreciated.
