Been here several times, but will call it a day after today's visit. Location is good and the building is nice, but don't come here if you want to feel welcome or receive good customer service. Service is usually extremely slow, but staff are surly and rude. No welcome again today, and young waiter seemed pained at being asked what cakes they had on offer. Ordered coffee and cake for three people today and when the waiter brought the tray to our table, I politely said that there were 2 more cakes to come (I thought I would remind just in case, as on our previous visit, the waitress forgot to bring our order all together ). The waiter replied, "I'll bring it now, I've only got one pair of hands." Won't go again, nor will we recommend this place to our friends. What a waste of a beautiful location!

I go to The Old Granary at least once a month and they never let me down. They are brilliant with kids, have a lovely changing area and you can easily feed a baby without feeling frowned upon. Having said that it's still a place for grown-ups and you can have a nice quiet relaxed meal here with lovely views out over the river and the Purbeck hills.

we vist each time we go down to our holiday home. Its a bit expensive but always lovely. Staff are always pleasant and the actual place has a nice ambiance, and atmostphere. Can sit outside in the summer and watch the boats come in and moor at the quay. Brunch with a coffee sat morning was nice too as a one off and Sunday lunch good too!

Super location by the river, with lovely food and nice atmosphere. We visited on a Tuesday evening in November and yet this restaurant was still quite busy. The food was not cheap but it was very good value. Really nice decor and atmosphere. There are several small rooms to eat in so you don't feel overwhelmed by lots of people. I can recommend the fish and chips and the Purbeck ice cream!
