Dropped in for some post-hike food. Had a delicious roast and a couple half pints of cider. Roast dinner on a Sunday started from £9.95. Half price pints of cider £2.25. Plenty of proper cider available. Good service. Very generous portions! Will be coming back for sure!

Great little pub with friendly staff. Lively public bar with locals enjoying a darts match. Quiet, cosy saloon bar with comfy seating plus tables for dining. No sport TV or noisy slot machines, which was a pleasant change! About 40 real ciders on draft, as well as bottles and real ales. Some tempting meal deals on offer, only sorry we weren't in for a meal! We will definitely return.

Had a great meal here. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good sized meals, proper pub grub with plenty of choice. Plenty of beer and cider available all at decent prices for a seaside town. Worth trying when in Swanage.
