Walked with a group of friends to this pub for a Sunday roast from Corfe Castle. The service was excellent and lunch arrived really quickly. I did find that the prices were a little on the steep side compared to other Sunday lunches I have...More

Excellent dinner there the other night, extremely well priced, with good food (veggies were absolutely perfect, sauce was gorgeous). This Inn sits very close to the main road from Corfe Castle to Wareham (shame) - as it would do, as an old coaching inn stop,...More
