Our daughter was getting married locally so we booked the entire hotel for the weekend. We hit the staff with everything - disabled child in a wheelchair; no dairy; vegetarian; celiac dining and a nonogenarian. The staff were excellent. Very friendly and accommodating. They devised...More

Cold, dismissive greeting (not welcome) by the single staff member, who appeared not to give a single fig about guests or good service. Weird “welcome” from the owner/host. The bar was not at all stocked - hardly any soft drinks, no snacks, nothing on draft...More

This place has a great location but lacks atmosphere and quality. The biggest complaint was the cold. You walk into the restaurant through the main door, and it is not really a restaurant but a large hall with tables in, so blasts of cold air...More

We ate here today as a family of 4. To start with the positives - the food was lovely, the atmosphere of the venue was relaxing and the food was also reasonably priced. We ordered 3 roasts and 1 fish and chips. Unfortunately, our experience...More

We booked at Bishops as we had never been in there before on our many trips to Dorset. When booking, the restaurant looked very nice and the signs outside stated they were Michelin rated in 2014, 2015 & 2016. We were expecting a lovely Sunday...More
