Thank you for your review, I am very pleased you enjoyed your meal and I am sorry you were a little disappointed with your dessert. Our deseserts are all homemade and normally go down a storm. I will speak to my wife (quality control) who insists on trying them all before we put them on the menu!!!. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

We've been eating at the pub for years now on and off whenever we go to Wareham area. It offers a warm welcome, great hosts, wonderful food and all in all really good value for money. We love it and commend them for doing such a great job. We eat out a lot and rarely find such consistent all round great results.

Went here with some friends and as we have the dog we usually sit in the bar.
We had the bar menu - at £5 a total bargain! all homemade local food.
I also had a pudding - lemon meringue pie - this was cooked to order and was lovely.

The staff are nice and friendly and would reccomend dinner or lunch here as its cheap and very good! Nice atmosphere. Even the specials board is great - more expensive but the same prices you would get around the area. venison wellington, pork belly.

We had dinner at the Cock and Bottle whilst staying at Hilltop Barn in Winterborne Zelston. The restaurant was packed, the food was excellent (we had the sea bass) and the service was very good. Be sure to book.

Went here for a family birthday, as this place is a firm favourite. We were not disappointed. I had the whitebait & then fish pie and it was lovely as usual.

The staff are very attentive & make a real effort to ensure you are enjoying yourself & have everything you need. There is building works going on, but the area it was in was sealed off, so did not cause any issue.

A great pub, expanding now - let's hope it keeps its fine quality service.
