I went to the Dorset Soldier today as a volunteer driver for a group of 12, also taking my wife. The front and rear car parks were spacious, and both had direct access to the building.

The restaurant was to the rear of the pub and felt open and airy, with authentic oak beams. It was pleasantly decorated with Devon and Dorset Regimental memorabilia. Tables were well spaced, so that even when busy, it did not feel cramped. Toilets were clean. There were high chairs and a baby changing mat readily available. The festive decor was tasteful and the background music enjoyable.

A previously emailed enquiry was answered swiftly and helpfully. ALL the staff were pleasant, friendly and exceptionally helpful. The menu was varied and I feel offered very good value for money. I had a prawn cocktail starter, which was very generous in quantity, and the prawns were meaty and flavoursome, not the washed out excuse for a prawn I’ve experienced elsewhere. My main course was an individual steak pie (pie of the week) with peas and chips which were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I could do no more than simply look at my food in anticipation for the first ten minutes after it arrived, as both plate and food were piping hot. Service was prompt, and the staff were attentive but not intrusive throughout the meal.

After my meal, I chose to go and sit in the bar, which had a mix of traditional tables and chairs, and comfy chairs in front of the fire. I was driving, so unfortunately unable to explore the range of beers behind the bar. I intend to return to address this.

I couldn’t find fault with any aspect of my visit, and I would heartily recommend it to anyone who asks.

Divided into a restaurant, serving a good selection of undemanding "pub fayre"; a loung bar, with a variety of seatings (tables, lounge type chairs etc); and the public bar.

The public bar is very, very cliquey, and worth avoiding as it can get quite rowdy - but never violent - especially on "pay days".

The lounge is much more welcomming to newcommers.

Beer is OK. Tanglefoot is good and they have the lovely Stowfords cider.

One interesing feature is that Geoff never employs males in any "public facing" roles: it is all women, including the pleasantly breasted Tanya and Jackie.

Good sports coverage from overseas satllite suppliers, and the list of matches is well advertised.

Big car park, but beware, the rozzers often drive around it taking down registration numbers for later "processing". Best park in one of the streets off the main road if you want to have a skinful and drive later.

TMYNS has started to frequent this establishment as the public bar has a rather good line is sports broadcasting. On one TV they have Sky football, and on the other either an alternative soccer offering or the rugby.

The public bar is a bit cliquey, but the locals are friendly enough and not the normal cackers you would associate with this area nicknamed "Broadstone Lite".

The restarant does need some better food. As it goes, it is basic "pub Fayre", but reasonably cooked.

The Tanglefoot is very good. Public bar is spoilt by quizzers and a golf machine.

Not a bad boozer
