Avoid on a busy sunday as feels a bit like a factory..... Pack you in like a cattle truck. Still a decent pub however.

Old stone pub in village with beer garden and large car park. Jurassic beer and Old Speckled Hen well kept as was wine in wine shack. Served beer to large group of walkers very efficiently. Two bars. Children allowed in one. Family with children came in. Landlady told them that although there was a notice saying no children in this bar they were welcome to stay there. Why does she think the other customers were in the bar where children were not allowed? The food served for the main course was good but expensive. Our group thought that 5 was excessive for a sweet course that we could get in the supermarket for 50p. One lady in our group complained and the landlady has not spoken to her since.

Over the years this has been one of our favourite pubs in summer because the views over the Purbecks are wonderful and we can take our dogs in the garden, and it's right next door to the delightful Margaret Green Animal Sanctuary. As it was a birthday celebration we went again today. I can't comment on the beer, cos I didn't have any. I enjoyed the calamaries and salad, and Keith's crab salad was also pronounced excellent. It was our desserts that proved disappointing. Keith's custard was watery thin with his lemon pud, and I was amazed to receive my dish of HOT CHERRIES with brandy and ice-cream with the STALKS STILL ON THE CHERRIES!! - these proved very messy to pull out, and smacked of sheer laziness on the part of the kitchen staff. Keith also thought we were over-charged by 60p, but felt it wasn't worth making a fuss about. Our young waiter, just starting his gap year, was delightful though and very helpful. So like the curate's egg - good and bad in parts.

Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime. Two other couples and some friends of the landlords were the only people in. Service was mediocre - landlord seemed more interested in chatting to his friends - bizarrely they were more welcoming than the landlord.
Food was expensive but very average. Poor choice of beer.
Positives are it is a nicve building in a very pleasant setting - but is that enough to make it worth a trip out of your way?
