My Mother and I cycled to the Horton Inn on a very hot day and stopped in the garden for a drink, which I brought from the bar and took out to the garden (this is important), my Father came to meet us to collect our bikes as we had just cycled 15 miles in 30 degrees and were rather hot... I went back to the bar to buy my Father a lemonade, came back out into the garden where I heard raised voices and the Landlord standing there accusing my Mother of picnicking as there were two bottles of lucozade (from our bicycles) on our table and an old beer bottle (which I had picked up out of the sun on the ground to avoid fire!) , he was less observant about the two gin and tonics I had just purchased! I came out to find my Mother incredibly upset and the landlord going on at her like a 'Fisherwoman'. For the disgusting way he jumped to conclusions and did not even ask if we had brought a drink I would never ever recommend this pub to anyone... we did eventually receive a refund and a very half hearted apology..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The new management team took over the running of this beautiful Inn on the 14th October with the intention of turning it back to it's former glory.Built in the eighteenth Century and surrounded by the beautiful forests and woods of Wimborne, the Horton Inn is the chance to take a step back in history and revel in the majestic traditional English surroundings. The inn is described as 'the rendezvous of many a daring poacher for operations in the adjoining forest' by Thomas Hardy, and we have an open fire and cosy bar with excellent quality pub food. If you’re too tired to travel on then you can make the most of our great hotel accommodation with several en-suite rooms, making the Horton Inn perfect for that well deserved rest. ... more less
