We stayed locally for a short walking break and this was one of the closest pubs. It is an eclectic mix of many things, an eccentric delight we thought. First, it is a proper country pub. It serves proper beer and although there were only a few locals around, there isn't a high number of houses nearby. We arrived with...

Booked a double room and dinner on Late Rooms at 18:30 for the same day so its fair to say they had little time to prepare for our arrival 19:30. Given the description as "The Shave Cross House Hotel" on Late Rooms, the five star rating and the high prices we expected good things. The accommodation is in a newly...

I have been here several times over several years. It's a firm favourite when we are visiting Dorset. The food is excellent made from local produce and is always fresh and well prepared. I had the Caribean Chicken curry and my husband had the fish and chips. He said the fish was very very fresh. As always we had a...

This is a lovely rural pub well off the beaten track. We visited this pub twice as we were staying at a nearby holiday cottage. The first visit was for a lunchtime drink on a Sunday. We wanted to have a look at their skittle alley. Our grandchildren were fascinated by something so old fashioned so we arranged to come...

Expensive but not open until 6pm. Nice room but too small for furniture. Food ok but again expensive. This is an old country pub with a separate modern accommodation block. You have to leave the building to get to breakfast. It's not far but may not suit some. We went on a festival weekend which may explain the price but...

Some friends were staying at the campsite nearby and had chosen to eat here and I joined them. On arrival I saw the AA 5 star Inn sign. Inside I saw the Tripadvisor accolade. I thought I was in for something special. We decided to eat in the bar, and I looked at the menu. Not very much choice I...

A proper old english country inn. We stopped here for a quick drink and ended up playing skittles in the long alley at the rear. Beautiful garden and a good selection of beers and great cider. Host very friendly and got service with a smile from him and the locals. Drop in, it will be well worth your while seeking...

We had a great stay in one of their luxury rooms with a lovely four poster bed. The food in the quaint pub was delicious. The owners are charming and helpful. It all has a great personal touch. The location is remote and countryfied. Great for relaxing walks but still near enough to get to Lyme Regis and Bridport quickly.
