Gastropub for people who don't really do pubs. However, the building has been done out nicely and there are plenty of rooms to sit in (and just drink). Spotted the Badger on tap but I chose something else (and noted it down seemingly incorrectly as C & C). Whatever it was, it was fine.

its waaay to restauranty inside. a nice restaurant yes, but dissapointing when you want a pub.

however, and this is a big however, the Badger beers on tap are excellent, really nice, and the location is perfect on a sunny day. so sitting outside on the river with a nice pint of Badger ale is just perfect.

plus worth mentioning the service was excellent. well poured pint with a smile.

More of a restaurant than a pub but it had two real ales on, tried the Ringwood best, it was a nice pint but at £3.80 a bit expensive.

Lovely location on the river and has outside seating and a upstairs terrace with good views over the Purbeck area.

Very polite and cheerful bar and serving staff.

We went to the Old Granary a few weeks back when on holiday in the area. Was actually my second visit as had visited once before whilst on business and knew it was a "safe" bet to take the family.

Nice location right on the river, the food was good (maybe a little pricey - but good quality) and the staff were friendly. The beer - Badger - was well kept.

I can understand how thi splace may suffer a bit because of its location at times, and to be truthful it's probably only just about a "pub" - couldn't really imagine standing at the bar having a cuff - but it's decent enough warrants a good rating.

As with the last reviewer we had a fantastic time the first night we went - Food was lovely, staff were friendly and the service was great - We were staying nearby and decided it was so good we'd go back the next night.... Big Mistake unfortunately....
On the second visit the service was dreadful - We had to wait an age for drinks and food, tables around us remained uncleared (as did our starters once finished), and we saw one of the waitresses seat a group of people who then asked her to leave the leftovers of the previous occupants (or maybe she just didn't clear them - Not sure), and they the proceeded to start picking at the cold food left on the table - Not very nice.
I ordered the (expensive) burger (having had the stargazy pie the night before which was lovely), and asked for it to be cooked medium. When it arrived it was very well done and when I complained it took a good 5 minutes of it being taken away and eventually a manager coming back and telling me that it was against their health and safety policy for them to do burgers medium rare...... But he could 'try' and get the chef to do me another one but he couldn't guarantee that it would be medium - It might be well done..... I gave up and told him I'd eat it as it was - Regardless of how the burger was cooked it was pretty horrible.... We skipped desert and when we complained while paying we were basically given a shrugged shoulder and told 'well don't come back then'....

In short, given the 2 completely different experiences we had I really couldn't recommend it - Also as has been pointed out it is NOT a pub, there are no seats available just for drinking it is purely a restaurant
