“A proper English pub”
Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

We popped into the Walter de Cantelupe on our way to Dorset after reading several favourable reviews.

Our hosts made us instantly welcome and the food was top notch. The award winning sausages were superb and the pastry on my husbands pie was melt in the mouth. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't sample the interesting beers as we still had the majority of our journey remaining.

I would definitely recommend for a lunchtime pit stop if you are in the area.

“Great welcome, food and drink”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

A free house with real character. The food is excellent, unfussy, deep flavoured. Excellent range of beers and whiskies. Open log fire. Great host. We had another superb lunch again. Looking forward to going back. This place is really worth supporting in an age of corporate sameness.

“Excellent food, drink and service”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Gorgeous steak and ale pie; sumptuous gravy, fresh, well cooked veg. Decent whisky selection and great beers. Sandra was attentive, friendly and remembered us, though we hadn't visited for a couple of months. One of the best pubs we have ever been to.

“Friendly with really good food”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

Not sure why this is listed as in the US as it's in England! Great pub with restaurant-quaiity food. 9 of us came in late-ish for lunch and the owner turned to and cooked for us single-handed. Big portions, good choice and nice flavours. Good range of real ales too.
