This might be one of the best drinking pubs In Dorset! The location is great, just up the high street, inside and out there are great options to sit. It has a good beer menu and the cider selections are probably the best you’ll find in Dorset! If you want to eat a dirty burger or similar during a session then go for it, however if you are looking for more of an eatery then I suggest you look else where! Though enjoy the beer and entertainment!
