“By the river”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We discovered this as we walked over the bridge. Sat outside in the sun by the river, had a couple of drinks, watching the ducks swimming up & down.
The pub was very quiet, which was a surprise as it was a gorgeous day & it is in a beautiful location.

“Awful Food”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

After a very pleasant cycle ride to Wimborne I saw this pub situated by the river and on a nice evening decided to stop, I order some Nachos and was very dissapointed with what arrived. When the waitress came and asked me if a wanted cheese I was a little suprised. As per the photo I was glad I said yes although wise it would have just been a plant of over Salty cheap tortilla chips. When asked if there was sour cream, salsa or Guacamole the answer was 'we dont stock it' but that was after she went to the kitchen to check. Lovely setting but horrible food.

“Unfortunately cannot mark it lower than 1...”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Otherwise I would...

Terrible pub - food, service, atmosphere is all severely lacking. Attitude of management is appalling and integration onto the local community is abysmal.

Either this pub should be closed or the management should be reviewed.

“BAD ATTITUDE”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The management seem to have a bad attitude and are not willing to listen to complaints. Use of aggressive door staff if you complain. It was a lovely friendly pub in the past and was used by locals regularly. It was one of the best pubs in wimborne,but now it seems to be the worst. I personally will not entertain it until the management sort it out. The food is not worth the price. The veg is frozen,not fresh. The atmosphere has died. It is a great shame that the old traditional pub has lost it, way. Unfriendly,uninviting. Some staff are lovely I may add. I think the brewery should take a closer look at the management.
