We both had the curry and a drink deal that the Red Lion does on a Wednesday night. Excellent value for money.

This pub is just great. Relaxed atmosphere, good food, helpful and friendly staff. Only downside is the slightly sticky carpet!

This has got to be the best real ale in Swanage town centre with regular guest ales, great food, a lovely authentic atmosphere, welcoming and not false or over friendly bar staff. Lovely real log fire. This little jewel in the crown is a must either before, after or even during a stroll round the town.

This is an old fashioned English pub. The emphasis is on the beer (Doombar - which was excellent, and Landlord were on when I was there), and they have a blackboard with a huge list of ciders. It's not plush or fancy, but if that's what you're after you're in the wrong place.

Service was efficient and friendly, the food was good (and very reasonably priced).

Worth a visit.
