Dreadful dreadful to make yourself a man over 50, go into this pub and try to get served. The bar staff are more interested in chatting amongst themselves, but when they do deign to serve customers, anyone over 35 is completely ignored. My money is just as good as a younger person's money but apparently this pub doesn't think so. I used to think that this pub was OK but will never bother with it again. If you're a grumpy old git like me, try the Bear and Staff in Charing Cross Road instead!

Great views as everyone says but the management don't seem to be able to make up their minds whether it's a 'pub' pub or a 'gastro' pub. They have a good menu, numbered tables and a waiting service but the restaurant side of the business is a shambles. No-one came to take our order, we got the cutlery, serviettes and parmesan in dribs and drabs, no-one offered us any starters, desserts, wine or coffee. If it's meant to be a pub that's fine but stop pretending to be a restaurant - it doesn't work! Food was OK but not great, beer was excellent with a good selection, and the pub itself is a wonderful buidling that's full of character. Would definitely go again, but not to eat.

Bankes Arms Hotel and Country Inn, Studland

What a disappointment! This is supposed to be the brewery pub for Purbeck and they advertise the fact that they sell the 9 beers that Purbeck brew, but I came here twice and there were only two Purbeck beers on tap each time, plus one or two guest ales (and the cider was off too). Having said that, the beer was good - but we had ploughmans which were unremarkable with not very tasty bread and little packets of Branston. Garden has great views to the sea but never seems to be tidied up or the glasses cleared. We went on Thursday and the same litter was there that had been there on Monday.
