“Wonderful take away experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

I popped in on the off chance I could get a take away pizza for my daughter who was ill (we were staying at Longthorn farm so no oven!)

The man who created her lovely pizza couldn't have been more obliging and friendly. It was a pizza 'made with love' - he went the extra mile and made it as quickly as possible due to the fact we were waiting in the car (market day so hard to park). Chef is clearly a perfectionist. The young women working there and in the vicinity, were also cheerful and attentive.

I was very appreciative that chef was willing to do us a speedy pizza and it was just a shame we couldn't go back again but we were leaving the next morning.

“One of the best resaurants we've visited!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

The Purbeck Pizzeria is set in a fantastic location. The interior is well-designed and attractively fitted out. They offer a wide ranging menu and the food, though not cheap, is first-rate. We were particularly impressed by the quality and nature of the service. We were looked after by staff who were thoughtful, attentive and very welcoming.
We'd recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. It's worth booking in advance - they seem very popular.
It's difficult for us to understand why some of the reviews written here are less than complimentary.

“Overpriced & mediocre.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

The pizzeria is situated by the river and, though small, is very pretty. Staff were friendly, although servers seemed somewhat distracted. They were confused but helpful when asked for Parmesan.

The pizza bases were nice enough, but the toppings not particularly tasty (not awful, just not great) and the pasta looked & tasted like something my children could have knocked up at home.

Desserts were great, (particularly the cheesecake!) however overall the dining experience we had here was not worth £15 a head.

Can't think of an occasion when I've had a better pizza! A busy evening, but friendly and attentive service. Good value and we will return.

“Great Pizzeria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Went on the last day of term with our son. Had not made a reservation but the staff were very accommodating and said there would be a table in 15 minutes. We returned and were met by the friendly manageress and led to our table. Certainly cannot fault the friendly and efficient service that followed. Good menu selection, great food and a fun evening at a family run restaurant. Thank you
