user reviews of Coach and Horses, Dorchester

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

Has definitely reopened as The Coach House Inn
Situated by the very busy A35 between Bridport and Dorchester but you’ll be pleasantly surprised how quiet it is wether sitting in the garden or inside having a drink or meal
Another pub run by people who respect customers and know what they are doing

I believe that this roadside inn has now been closed for a couple of years.
With little or no sign of ever reopening again.
Quite surprising really as I'm sure it would make a fine roadside inn again for food or drink.

We previously visited this pub when staying locally in 2005, enjoying three evening visits then. This time we stopped by for a late lunch en-route to Cornwall and were pleased to see the same high standards of hospitality with staff friendliness, drink quality and food quality. A consistently excellent pub!

Went in and had a couple of pints, one of Butcombe and one of Palmers Dorset Gold.
Very efficient young enthusiastic barmaid said "Cheers" a lot.
Thought it would be a good idea to take on board some solids, so decided on a steak with new potatoes, onion rings, fried mushroom, grilled tomato and peas. Peas were the usual bullets, as used by so many like JD Wetherspoons, the mushrooms were fine and the onion rings were real onion rings, not like the usual reconstituted garbage as served in lots of pubs/restaurants. The grilled tomato was absolutely wonderful. I thought "At last I've found a place with someone who can grill a tomato." but the new potatoes were dry as the Kalahari, and worst of all, the steak (Cooked to your liking), which I had requested "Rare", was very well done.
I overheard customers being told "You may find there's only beef left on the carvery, as we've been very busy". Oh no you haven't! I was in at 1200, and there was no evidence of anyone else having eaten.
Back to the drawing board.
4/10 for the beer, which was rather warm.
