Stayed in this pub on a recent visit to Corfe Castle and would recommend it. It has a pleasant sun trap garden that sides on to the steam railway - a nice spot to sit and relax.

Inside, it has a reasonable size bar area with four ales on hand-pull. I had something called 'Local' but can't for the life of me remember the name of the brewery, it was was something like Tisbury but I think that they are defunct. Anyway, a very good pint indeed - a view supported by a couple of friends. Bar seemed very popular with both locals and visitors and the staff were very welcoming and friendly.

Food was good - not exceptional but very tasty and good sized portions (including the breakfasts!)

Bedrooms, clean and comfy but like many old old pubs no air con so can get stuffy (but that's part and parcel of staying in old pubs) and those at the front can be a bit noisy but there is very little road traffic at night.

Enjoyed it - give it a try if you are in the area. Oh, and the village is charming.

much better view of the castle than from the Greyhound. Superb pint of Wadworth 6X

A hot Sunday lunchtime, with the Swanage Railway extension open. Just got in ahead of the rush. Palmers Dorset Gold in very good condition. Two other Palmers beers and Marstons (Wychwood) Hobgoblin on.
Will come back in the winter when it's a bit more peaceful.

Nice Pint of Ringwood Best

I didn't find the beer garden to be a patch on the one at the Fox even with its view of the castle (and Station Road). Nor was my pint of Tribute as good as offerings elsewhere although, to be fair, there was nothing wrong with it. Ringwood Best (the cheapest at £3.20) and Adnams Broadside completed the line-up of ales with Stowford Press as the cider. Didn't really have a proper look at the inside of the pub although there is a nice-looking wood-panelled room on the way out to the garden.
