Slightly above average Wetherspoons. The interior is more compact than most. But that means you still have to go on a trek to find the toilets. Ales were the usual Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best & Sharps Doom Bar. But they also had 4 guests (none from Dorset) - Saltaire Cascade, Goodards Ducks Folly, Wychwood Hobgoblin Gold & Cotleigh Seahawk. Two ciders were also in the fridge and at least one of these was from the county - Purbeck Cider Company Joe's Dry, in addition to Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. The entrance to the pub resembled a crèche, with plenty of families. But the rear was more drinkers. There is a patio outdoor at the rear.

Pretty standard 'spoons - selection of ales up to scratch and the food was to their usual standard - we had no complaints. Table service was friendly, too.

Our only gripe was that it was too cold - someone needs to turn down the air conditioning. We moved, trying to find a table which wasn't under the A/C and saw others do so too. I wore my jacket to eat and didn't linger after, whereas we might have stayed longer if it had been warmer.
