A very large and beautiful beer garden and a very big car park as the place was heaving. Delicious food and a fine selection of ales and ciders
There was a massive queue at the bar because the scooterists paid their annual visit but the queue was quickly dealt with by the two barmen whilst the waitresses efficiently served the food
Another gem in Dorset proving properly run establishments survive

Large, partly thatched early 19th century village pub on the River Piddle. We visited on Jubilee Sunday for a massive roast lunch but the pub is big enough to welcome diners and drinkers alike (and a party of cyclists). For some reason, I chose to have a pint of Palmers Tally Ho! which didn't seem right for June but I'd never tried it before.

I got the opposite impression of this place from the previous reviewer, in that the Thimble appears to focus more on food than drink. The location is idyllic with a stream running through the garden. But the interior feels fairly modern. There is a bar area at the front, with plenty more seating for diners to the rear. Toilets and the pub's well are located around the back of the bar. It's a Palmers establishment that was serving their Best Bitter, Copper Ale, Dorset Gold & Tally Ho! The cider was Dorset Orchards First Press. I believe this is a cider exclusive to Palmers' pubs, as I found it later on in a second pub. I gave it a go, as I'd never tried it before and it was reasonable. Dogs are welcomed here.

Decent pub in a beautiful Dorset village. Nice choice of ales from the local Palmers brewery, with a local draught cider too.
Food is good, freshly cooked and interesting menu at reasonable prices. Good mix of locals and tourists: definitely felt like a pub and not a restaurant (a big plus in my book).

Very nice friendly landlady who gave a friendly welcome to the 20 of us "Mods" who made a suprise visit to her establishment and startled the locals.Sorry we shot off before you got your camera out.We didn't eat but found the beer and soft drinks reasonably priced and enjoyed our evening.
