Current name is "Goldies" named after the wine, spirit, ale & porter merchants that used to be here over 100 years ago. In some ways, it still feels like a small shop with a bar rather than a pub. The room to the left has a modern stone floor whereas the room to the right is bare-boarded and more like a working man's club. My Ringwood Best was average; Hobgoblin Gold, Youngs London Special and Courage Directors made up the range of national beers. Landlord was constantly busy, collecting glasses, tidying up etc. which I thought was a good sign.

Friendly place with a good selection of beers. It was fairly crowded when we visited at around 6.30 on a Friday. Turns out that this is 'happy hour' and they hold a free meat draw at 7!

A lot quieter after 7 as many people seemed to be there just for the draw and then went home.

A nice pub and good beer - our favourite in Dorchester, from the few we visited.

Nipped in for a quick pint on the way past. Much improved since my last visit. Excellent range of beers. My pint of hobgoblin was first rate. Keep it up!

Decent, in a slightly rundown kind of way. Housed in a vast and beautiful building which stretches out far with some kind of former barn contraption out back. The (Marston's) beer was pretty clean.

Could do with turning its music down but ok. No idea why the waste loads of sittinmg space with a indoor skittles pitch?
