A half timbered pub at the foot of the south downs. Busy last Saturday with live music. I had a fish pie for 9.95 and a pint of Harveys Sussex Bitter for 3.30 which seems reasonable compared with the prices in Swanage. No food after 15:00 on Sunday or all day on Monday. Staff and locals seemed friendly.

Great pint but marked down because if you have a sign saying food till 3pm don't tell me you have stopped serving at 2:20.

Went here with 8 friends recently one Wednesday lunch time.
Pub smells a bit damp as you go in but you soon forget that, 4 good cask ales on today including Harveys, Timothy Taylor "Landlord" AND Betty Stoggs. Our party sampled them all and all were in good condition at reasonable prices (3.20 or less)
The pub is friendly and was quite busy.
The menu is rather limited but what they do they do well, 4 of us had a very nice and very tasty Liver and Bacon with mash and fresh veg, (not cheap at 9.95 each but VERY good) 3 others had ham eggs and chips which was not on the blackboard (only menu) but was on the web site, they only had 6 eggs so we were limited to 3 portions at 8.95, very good though with thick home cooked ham. The last 2 in our party had burger and chips, again home made with hand cut chips, very nice .. sorry, can't remember the price. Puddings at 4.75 were tasty and looked good although we thought the very shallow plates that looked like dishes were a bit of a swiz!

All in all this is more a drinkers pub I think but none the worse for that. as I said, what they do they do very well.
We will be going back.
For me 7 10 and probably best in this area, certainly for beer!

This pub has no beer no heat and no food. Its staff are fed up and the customers have left in droves, it would be better of shut.
