It is our local pub and restaurant and we love going there. All the staff are so friendly and the food is great. The landlady Mel, is an excellent host and good fun. Mel and her helpers always make the pub look amazing on holiday events such as Valentines, Easter, Halloween, Christmas etc. Genuine village pub - fab.

A smallish pub in a smallish village but we are so pleased we stopped there for a meal. It was delicious. Really good value for money, served by friendly, obliging staff. We will definitely stop by again next summer on our Dorset tour.

Thank cwb16

The food was very, very good and our young waitress was excellent......even stretched to accommodating us when they were actually fully booked.

We visited this pub with our 12 year old granddaughter on 2 occasions whilst staying in the area. Mel, the landlady, and her happy and helpful team made us very welcome. Excellent local beer and homemade food on both visits. Our 2nd visit was to join in the Haloween fancy dress party which was excellent.
