We have been passing this pub for years and saying we must try it - so last Sunday we did. It has always looked great from the outside and is amazingly large on the inside, with a large bar, beer garden and restaurant area which includes a converted patio sundeck. We both had the £10.50 Sunday carvery (£5.95 rest of the time) which was very good. That said the rest of the menu (encapsulated paper) looked like standard pub fayre (ie not gastro) and quite pricey. Staff were friendly and attentive but pub looked a bit frayed at the edges and in need of some TLC. Good news is this is not a chain pub - it is owned by Enterprise Inns as a Beer-tie but is leased by locals Brightie Limited. So in summary good for Sunday carvery but otherwise average. I suggest a better alternative in this area is the Hall & Woodhouse Smugglers Inn in Osmington Mills - better menu in a great location overlooking the sea.
