Just popped in after great disappointment with other local pub. What a contrast. Beautifully served food, lovely staff & gorgeously decorated for Christmas.

When I last came to Chideock I said that this establishment was nothing to write home about. Unfortunately my latest visit does nothing to make me change my mind. Lockdown has made me ask myself why I visit such places. I found the place dark,...dismal and uninviting. It could have been uplifted by the food and drink but alas no. The best part of the experience was that the ladies who were serving were very pleasant. The hospitality industry is undergoing fundamental changes and in my opinion places like this need to adapt or they will disappear.More

Really nice atmosphere with fire being lit on a November evening after a long walk on south Coast Way. We wanted to treat ourselves for a birthday. The staff were lovely and service very good. Sadly we were disappointed. We chose the Vegan and Veggie...options on the menu but they were really very poor. Stodgy, bland, no flavour and we couldn't finish it. I hope that the chef can explore tastier options and try things to suit people who don't eat meat or dairy, otherwise you're neglecting a client group entirely.More

My friend and I have eaten here a couple of times. It is dog friendly and my boy was given a few dog biscuits which delighted him. We find the owner and the staff are delightful and very friendly. There is no rush but food...is served in a timely manner. Car parking at the rear is very handy. The food is lovely especially the desserts!More

Pretty poor quality food. I had the fish on a bed of noodles. The noodles tasted dreadful… too salty. My wife had a burger which was unimaginative and dry. Friendly staff tho.

We visited this pub when we previously visited the area, and again we weren’t disappointed. The present landlord has obviously made sure that everything runs smoothly and the staff couldn’t be more pleasant and helpful. We had a lovely dinner one evening and Sunday roast....The food was amazing so was quality and presentation. Would highly recommend a visit for the delicious food and friendly atmosphereMore
