Very friendly pub in attractive village. The beer (we tried 6X and Dorset Gold) was well kept and not too expensive etither. The food was also cheap, but sadlyit was truly awful. A good pub for a drink but most definitely not somewhere for dinner.

After visiting this pub in 2005 and being very welcomed i decided to re-visit. I was shocked to see that a once periodic main bar had been turned into a 'yobs lounge' , huge TV dominating the entire atmosphere, blasting out the simpsons and then roudy football, and in fact, only the VERY rude landlord seemed intrested in. The landlords wife was equally unfriendly and rude. Very over priced drinks and menu of greasy looking food. NOT RECOMMENDED!!! VERY DISAPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Only plus side is that its in a beautifull and quante village!

The big-screen TV doesn't do much to add to the atmosphere, but it seems to be inevitable nowadays. Not that anyone was paying attention to it, and the sound was not as loud as it often is. A real local, but welcomes outsiders too.

Excellent pub for a drink or food. Has a seperate pool room and skittles alley. Don't listen to review below it's been busy every time I've gone in and the TV is easy to ignor with the right company.

What used to be a good country pub with good pub type food has been overtaken with big flat screen TVs playing sport or the Simpsons and now has food that I wouldn't go back for.

Used to get lots of locals in here but it was dead when I went in.

Shame, used to be good.

A really good country pub! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and first rate grub (try the 'all-day breakfast' for a mighty nosh!)

Another lovely place that I discovered whilst out walking. Small and intimate and didn't get the stare that you sometimes get when a stranger walks into a country pub. Well looked after real ales. Top notch.
