user reviews of the Tippling Philosopher, Milborne Port

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Correct, it is the TIPPLING Philosopher. Was previously the King's Arms/Head (?) in living memory but was apparently the Tippling Philosopher a long time back.

Don't go often as the Gainsborough is much better.

The main problem with the Tip is no fault of its staff/landlord of the moment: something about the layout/acoustics sucks the noise out of you. You can go in there all hale and hearty and end up whispering.

Also, to be fair, there's usually a handful of sullen regulars at the bar - which is in a little recess - meaning you don't feel particularly encouraged to buy drinks.
