Drovers Inn, Gussage all Saints

So disappointing! Had been here for a drink about a year ago and thought the pub seemed great. Decided to go for lunch when the relatives came to visit last weekend and the whole experience was a total let down. We ordered food but waited over an hour to receive it. Not given any explanation, one of our party asked the bar staff how long we would have to wait and we were fobbed off with a weak reason. Lots of other customers were also waiting and getting restless. Finally the food came and it was OK, tasty but not spectacular. We felt the menu may be too big for the kitchen to cope with? The guy who served our food didn't give an apology which we felt was strange, considering the lengthy wait. Upon paying, a large queue had formed at the bar and the same guy was struggling to cope...more of a hinderance than a help to the poor girl behind the bar. My relative made a comment that we had waited a very long time for our food, but the guy just apology at all! In the end my partner forced an apology by suggesting, " Don't you think an apology is in order?" Reply finally came: "Well of course I'm sorry." -imagine a sarcastic tone! Nice attitude... Don't think we'll bother again. The Bull in Wimborne St.Giles looks much better if you're in the area.

The Thimble Inn, Piddlehinton

Very nice pub, didn't try the food but it looked good. Good ale and cider, we bought a bottle of Lulworth Skipper cider to take home- very nice. Will visit again.

The Brace of Pheasants, Plush

Really surprised at previous reviews. Eaten here twice recently, both times at the weekend and both times the service and food was fantastic. Great menu, all food fresh and cooked to perfection- great fish and chips. Superb selection of ales and ciders- shame you need a car to get to it. Staff very helpful, but it does get really busy- probably best to book ahead. Big beer garden and accommodation looks nice too. Give it another try- we intend to visit more often.
