Visited for the first time on an overnight stay, based on good reviews. It was a birthday treat away. The room was quaint, well equipped and spotlessly clean, with a nice array of toiletries in the bathroom. The evening meal was superb, the best steak we have tasted for a long time, beautifully cooked and served. Nice little touch of... More

Nice very clean pub serving good food. We found The Marquis of Lorne by accident, we were going to another local pub but was closed that day, so rather pleased as we had a nice lunch here and is dog friendly.

On a recent overnight stay we were delighted to find such a quality inn in this hidden and remote setting. The welcome was warm, the staff professional at all times and both the food and the room good value and of a high standard

We live locally and have eaten at The Marquis of Lorne 4 times this year and the food has been very good. We love the pub's atmosphere and location. However, on this occasion we were disappointed with our Roast Beef Sunday Lunch and Puddings. The Beef itself was over cooked and tough and although it was accompanied by an excellent... More

We had come across this pub in Dorset Arts Week in May and stopped for an excellent coffee before the pub had fully opened, and watched a deliriously happy spaniel watching a herd of semi-cooperative cows being guided past the pub. We were so impressed we resolved to negotiate the narrow lanes again and come back for a lunch. This... More

We discovered the Marquis whilst on holiday in nearby West Milton. Its in a beautiful setting in the West Dorset countryside - quiet and deeply rural. The beer was excellent. Palmers bitter, well kept and tasty. The food too was excellent, lots of choice on the menu, well cooked, generous portions and good value. All in all, main course, pudding... More

Let's start with the restaurant. If this was just a restaurant review, it would be 5 stars. The menu is inventive and very well executed. One night we had lamb cutlets and shoulder of lamb, the next lobster. The starters were very good, particularly the avocado, salmon and crayfish dish. Kudos to the chef. This is an attractive country inn... More
