Not so much a pub,more an eaterie and an expensive one at that.We stopped by for lunch recently and generally were not impressed.Food was average,but expensive.Beer was okay but again expensive - £3.40 for a pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord.Service was very good.Toilets were clean,but the Ladies and Gents are next to each other and share the same washroom so not very private.Wouldn't visit again as none of us felt the food warranted the price they charge and it's not the sort of place you'd just stop at just for a drink.

This pub is set in a lovely small Dorset village. It was a bit too gastropub for our liking, with most tables set out for diners and a small group of drinkers at the bar. Getting served took quite a while, with the focus being on serving diners. Once finally served, the staff did turn out to be quite friendly. Beers available were Dorset Jurassic, Sharps Doom Bar & Ringwood Best. Orchard Pig Medium Cider was also available. I find the toilets to be fairly strange, with one door marked 'lavatory' followed by 4 further doors - 1 marked 'ladies', 1 marked 'ladies/disabled' and 2 unmarked, all served by a communal bathroom. I assumed the unmarked cubicles were the gents, but I'm still not sure! A nice enough pub. But a shame that the focus is on food.

Lovely Food, friendly, fun and efficient staff. A perfect place for lunch or dinner after a walk in the lovely Dorset countryside or a visit to the National Trust' s Kingston Lacy Hoouse and Estate a mile or so away.
