Doesn't have that 'local' feel. Amazing thatched building, but seems full of the prawn sandwich brigade, rather than drinkers. I think if I drank in here for a lot of years no one would throw a plate of mushy peas at me... (William Mcgonagall). Also agree with JonRambo, 3 or 4 average Butcombe ales on offer (can only remember Rare breed and Original). The pub also had a few hikers an ramblers, but all rather ordinary...

Recently purchased and modernised/ruined by Butcomb. Used to be a characterful English pub with lots of nooks & crannies, but now feels soulless and corporate and all the guest beers have gone to be replaced by 3 dull Butcomb beers. Have been coming here for decades but will not be returning. Reminds me of what Hall & Woodhouse did to the Smugglers at O.Mills. I am so depressed - my visits to Dorset will never be the same.

Maybe this place has had a recent change in management? There were 3 or 4 ales from Butcombes on...all pale ales and all around 4%. No guest ales. The only draught cider was Butcombe's own. So quite a boring collection of drinks, even though the quality of each pint was reasonable.
Lots of shiny tiles behind the bar, staff wearing smart aprons and white shirts. Felt a bit corporate and soul-less. Didn't feel like a cozy rural pub. Still, it's OK if you're in the area and need a drink.

Mixed feelings about this pub.
On the plus side, it''s a lovely old bar inside. The beer and cider is cheap at roughly £4.20 per pint.

It has a cracking elevated grassy beer garden out the back with a nice view of the hills.

What lets it down is the rip off tourist prices for very average food.
9 quid for a jacket potato with cheese and beans is just not on.
I paid 13 quid for an ultra bland chicken curry, containing very little chicken.

My advice would be, drink plenty here, but eat elsewhere.
