“you will not be disappointed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We visited the Frampton arms when we had friends staying with us from Australia it is a pub we often frequent especially if we have visitors, the food never disappoints and there is always a very varied menu and specials board, our friends had a scallop and bacon salad and declared it the best meal the had eaten while here.The staff are always very pleasant and helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble . One word of advice book a table especially at weekends .

“Traditional English Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

I have previously attended a wedding reception, an anniversary party and normal pub lunches at the Frampton Arms and have always had a very enjoyable time.
Just returned again to sample their restaurant menu and must congratulate them for yet another great experience.
In my opinion, you could not wish for a nicer traditional English Pub that also has the space and facilities to cater for weddings, etc.
Keep up the good work because I will be coming back!!

“Good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

I visited here with my wife and two daughters whilst on Easter holiday.
The food and service is good and the setting in a conservatory nice.
We visited twice during our week's stay.

“Excellent service,equally excellent food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

A last minute decision to eat out whilst on holiday,so just called in on the off chance, my daughter and I were made most welcome,we were seated in the conservatory,and were not disappointed with our huge Dorset ham salad and fresh chunky chips! Very good value for money and lovely staff. We have called in for a drink on a previous holiday but never eaten before,we will definately return.
