What a find!!!! an absolute gem in the heart of dorset, the pub itself looks fantastic and really well kept. went with my girlfriend for a night, got upgraded to an amazing room with a huge bath. the room was clean and really modern. was like staying at a 5* hotel!
We had supper there both nights and the food was amazing, we had the pig's head balls for starter and the beetroot, both were fantastic, for main we had pork and bream, the portions were huge and really good value, I dont know who the chef is but they did an amazing job, best food in dorset!
the staff were friendly and kind, the barman was very funny, and went out his way to light the fire for us during a busy friday night.
book well in advance, and eat in the restaurant area, the atmosphere is really great.
cant wait to go back.
