We tried this pub on a recommendation, there was a lovely atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome.
All of the locals were very friendly and happy to engage in conversation with you.

Due to the normal damp, dismal and depressing weather of early April.
We decided to eat out local one Wednesday night.
Arrived to the customary roaring fire and pleasant jovial host !
I went for Steak pie in suet pastry and Wendy had the Ham Egg and chips.
Washed down with Palmers Copper.
not a long stay this time, but it did take our minds off the weather.

We were staying at the old George B&b over the road and popped in for dinner one evening.

Friendly welcome from the new owners. Food basic but ok and very convenient. Owners and staff very helpful in answering questions from our party.
Good luck with your new pub.

We rented a holiday cottage in Broadwindsor for a Christmas family reunion only 25 yards from the pub, so we spent many a happy hour there over the festive period and really enjoyed the festive atmosphere created by Spike and Vikki. The meals we had were excellent (can highly recommend any of Vikki's home made pies) and she makes damned good chips too. The Trivial Pursuit cards on the tables are a nice touch! Thanks to Spike, Vikki, Gill-i-an and David for helping to make it a really enjoyable and memorable Christmas!
