Local to my sister, went in there for lunch. Two had beef roast, one turkey and the fourth pork. Very good portions and they hadn't skimped on the meat. Nice bowl of additional vegetables. Three of us had deserts and again well presented. Superb old...More

The Sunday lunch roast was excellent, 3 choices, beef, turkey or pork. All were really good, with all the trimmings. Vegetarian option and reduced a la carte menu also available. Not the cheapest but well worth it.

Read down to the spoiler for the 3* review reason! Pre-booked a table her for a Sunday roast as we had been recommended by good friends of ours. We chose the two course meal which is under £20 each plus a desert. We had one...More

We paid £31.50 for four drinks, in a place with a lacklustre barmaid and even worse atmosphere. Just don’t bother. Unless you have more money than sense. The 1 star is optimistic if I could it would get a -10.

All I can say about this is it was just awful. Very expensive (£68 a head) and almost inedible. We had booked and told them I was a vegetarian, I was given a lettuce and beetroot starter, I hate beetroot. The rest was just as...More

Called in for a drink mid-afternoon on Christmas Eve. The fire was unlit. We sat in a room next to the bar - badly furnished, drab, uncomfortable, unwelcoming. Won’t go back.

Miserable barmaid who argue when I asked for the beer glasses to be topped up. There was at least a cm empty at the top of each glass. The beer prices were extortionate.

Met friends at this pub as it was near Poole and on the main road. Good car park as had our camper van. We ordered a lunch. The food was poor. The chips tasted like they had been cooked earlier gone cold and heated up....More

Booked a table for myself, wife and two friends last Friday evening. Throughout the process the service we received was excellent and the menu choices delicious. As well as being a country pub, it has a very fine restaurant where the quality of cuisine is...More

Lunchtime meal with family. Excellent service and interesting menu. The deconstructed vegetarian burger was huge but pleasant to eat even though a lot of it was cold by the time I'd figured out how to eat it. Being presented with a plate of field mushrooms,...More

Located on the busy A31 near Corfe Mullen, you could be forgiven for driving by thinking The Coventry Arms is just another local pub. However this 15th Century Inn, has so much more to offer. Inside there is a lovely bar offering local real ales, and a great wine and spirits selection. The restaurant seats 50 people with more comfortable seats available outside on the rear (heated) patio. Our large gardens have ample seating for over 100 people, and we have 3 large dining tents that can seat up t0 10 people each. Our River Lounge, right on the edge of the River Stour with comfy lounge seating and heaters is the perfect spot to sit and unwind at end of a hard days work or sightseeing.
