“Exceptionally good food!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We went for an evening meal early January and we were lucky to get a table! We had a wonderful meal, including quail scotch eggs, muscles and venison. Everything was cooked very well and I have the best ice cream I've had for a long time - evaporated milk flavour!
I would highly recommend this place for somewhere to eat.

We had a lovely modern room in the annexe, very large, clean, warm and quiet, we couldn't fault it. We'd stayed before, in the room above the pub. That was full of character, being an old building, but still clean, warm and comfortable. You could just faintly here the church bells chime on the hour and half hour, which was beautiful. Not enough to wake you up, I'd add.

The pub prides itself on its food and is well-renowned in the county (!), justifiably so. Very rich but wonderful flavours. I think the full English breakfast was as good as I've had anywhere...ever!

The staff were friendly and attentive. I guess it's quiet this time of year but still. The location is only about 4 miles from Bridport but is accessible only by country lanes, so you'll probably need a satnav. This is a gem, which is why we returned.

Stayed 1 night on business. I stayed in the room over the pub which was a bit basic and in need of updating, but it was enormous and warm and clean. (and VERY good value)
The dinner was very good and not expensive and the breakfast was fine. Take a walk round the village if you can, it's beautiful.

Stayed for 2 nights in October. As the other reviews have said, the food is very good. An excellent menu with a good mix of the usual and the not so usual. The Pork belly and the profiteroles stuffed with caramel ice cream were both delicious. Portions are generous and good value for money. From reading other reviews we expected the food would be good, but hadn't realised how nice the accommodation would be. A well furnished, spotlessly clean spacious room, with a beautiful view of the rural rolling hills. The bed was very comfortable. Black out curtains and a peaceful setting led to a good couple of nights sleep. Would highly recommend this pub for a lunch, dinner, overnight stay or long weekend away.

If you want to visit Dorset, if you want a comfortable room and amazing food, this is the place to be. Only 15 minutes from Bridport and yet in the middle of nowhere, Karl & Susie make you very welcome, it is so peaceful and the view from the rooms is breathtakingly beautiful. Our room (No. 2) was large, airy, modern, had a comfortable bed and wonderful shower. The food (cooked by Karl) was some of the best I've ever tasted, beautifully cooked and all locally sourced. The chips are to die for, the steak & kidney pie outstanding!!! Dorset is so gorgeous and our days out were fantastic but knowing we were coming home to the 'Shoes' was lovely. We will definitely be returning to Powerstock in the future and we would not think of staying anywhere else. Thanks Susie & Karl - it was a joy.

Room Tip: We stayed in room No. 2. - large, airy, fantastic view.

We stayed at "The Shoes" recently , Susi and Her Husband were great hosts , the food was so good we ate in every evening of our 3 day stay.

The Village location is excellent for walking and exploring the beautiful countryside and coastal footpaths . We will certainly return

Good to see a chef who doesn't confuse size of the menu with quality. Unlike some reviewers, we don't consider a shorter menu a bad thing, but a good thing - especially in a smaller establishment. It means it's more likely to be fresh produce, freshly cooked - and this is definitely the case here. I had the scallops with chorizo, my wife had smoked salmon with beetroot, wild mushroom and horseradish sauce with warm soda bread. Both these were perfect. We shared the fantastic chips.

We received a warm welcome, space was found for our dogs - and the homemade fudge with our bill was a real bonus !! We hope to be back for an evening meal before we go home.
