Just decided to take a drive to the country, and passed the pub and popped in for a drink and this led to us having a superb evening meal, Would recommend the Sunday Roast anytime, the team of staff and management make you more than welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely visit again soon.

Fantastic jewel of a restraint. Service over and beyond, took time with us to make our meal a very enjoyable experience. Recommended wines. I choose roast lamb with rosemary and garlic and my husband chose roast beef which just melted in your mouth, both came served with cabbage, swede, carrots, parsnip, roast potatoes, a large crispy homemade Yorkshire and pipping...

Staying locally so decided to try Sunday Lunch here, we booked the day before as I was told it's always busy. I had roast beef, my wife had the roast pork, everything cooked how we like it Service was great, good value. Recommended.

Visited with a large family group for a New Year's Day roast dinner. As ever the atmosphere and friendly staff were great. A fabulous traditional roast dinner.

Have visited this pub a few times, summer and winter. The food is excellent with a great range. Their homemade soup is always first class. The staff are very friendly and the service efficient and welcoming. Dogs allowed which is a great bonus and indoors and outdoors, it's a lovely place to stop - and ample free parking.

At last a venue that doesn't make veggies,vegans or those with other dietary requirements feel like an afterthought. Visited this pub yesterday (14th Feb) for the second time this year after a bad experience 3 years ago. Now new management has brought fresh ethos to this place. Fab fresh ingredients, great service and home cooked food without the usual frozen,... More

You will not be disappointed with the food here and the service is excellent too. They also allow dogs which is a big bonus with us as we have a dog. We stopped off here before we went to Corfe Castle National Trust place and had a lovely walk with our dog.

We've been here several times, with family. Sometimes for special occasions & sometimes just because we wanted to!! As its not that far from where we live, it's one of the places we can go to knowing we'll get excellent service & excellent food. The menu is varied, the portions fantastic & the price affordable. You won't be disappointed, that's... More

We booked for lunch as we were visiting Margaret Green Animal Rescue and wanted to have a nice meal. One vegetarian, one vegan and one meat eater. It was lovely, no room for desserts unfortunately. Also it was so nice to find a dog friendly pub. We don't have a dog but so good to see them. Lovely staff and... More

Popped here on the way back from Lulworth at lunchtime, on a Sunday, not expecting to be able to get a table for 4 but we were in luck. We all had the roasts, 2 lamb and 2 beef. Absolutely gorgeous, cooked to perfection, beef not over cooked, plenty of crispy roast potatoes, thick tasty gravy and fluffy Yorkshire pudding.... More
