We were en route to Portsmouth having been in, rather near Bridport in Dorset. It was lunchtime and were motoring along the A35 and getting hungry. Our first attempt to find a nice pub took us off route to Briantspuddle, a beautiful village,thatched roofs ...but no pub? How can that be? A kindly and sympathetic villager directed us to Bere Regis some 4 or 5 miles away where we found the Drax Arms. However, at 2.05pm we were told sorry the kitchen is closed. Our quest was not to be denied, we drove a further 2-300 yards to the Royal Oak and was delighted to find they serve food to 4pm on a Sunday.
I was further delighted to find they also serve Cornwall's Doombar beer amongst several others
The food was good, OK it was good enough but not great, not good enough to go out of the way to find the place solely for the food. We enjoyed our lunch, filled our stomachs and were on our way againMore
