Food delicious, some waiters did not have masks on, waited over 30minutes for food, had to ask for serviette and water. Very quiet and little atmosphere until 1pm when other diners arrived for Sunday lunch.

Fabulous afternoon tea - excellent quality sandwiches, cakes and pastries. We were advised on booking that the afternoon tea was for one so we went along with that and ordered a platter and flat bread to share all between 5 of us. There was plenty of food to share (another time we would just share the beautiful tea) but the cakes we couldn’t manage were wrapped for us to take away thanks! Staff were very welcoming and attentive. We had a great time - thanks. Would highly recommend and will be back!

We visited on Thursday evening after the lift of lockdown measures. Although they were short staffed, you never would have known it from the great service and great good. The atmosphere in tbe garden is wonderful with lots of space between tables.

Got a phone call 2 days before the booking to let us know there would be a reduced menu, due to some of the chef’s isolating. Although the menu was reduced in size, it still had what we intended to get. The camembert was lovely as a starter and the steaks were cooked to perfection.

Both very good. Great service, nice ambience as we sat outside in the sunshine under some shade, as requested. Couldn’t fault it.

An interesting menu but the food was delicious and the kitchen was happy to tweak an order. Service was rather erratic but Freddy was a star and really help to make a most enjoyable evening.

Six of us ate here and not one had a good experience. Sat for an hour before we had to ask for menus. Repeatedly had to find someone for drinks and 3 out of 6 mains were inedible. We have them feedback on the night itself and they apologised but nothing offered in terms of money off the bill or anything. Definitely won’t be going back. Really disappointed.

Service was poor, wasn’t up to normal level. Basic things like no salt and pepper on table then takes 5 mins after food to catch attention for someone to bring some.
Small details like super cheap napkins, awful decor in back room. Not sure why it had to be changed, looks super cheap and tacky especially with empty champagne boxes in the window. Come on we are not in ocean beach.
Food was over priced in my opinion.
This is a shame as I have really enjoyed my time here in recent visits.
Won’t be coming back in a hurry.

Food was great and staff welcoming and friendly. The reason haven’t scored higher is the cocktails. Two of the three ordered (one being ordered twice) were awful as if the person making them didn’t know how to make cocktails. Such a shame as otherwise would have been a great afternoon.

This was such a lovely experience. Attentive, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, wonderful top quality food and we were lucky to experience live music which made the experience even more special.
Excellent recommendations from the team with drink and the menu, especially enjoyed the trout and gin jelly starter. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a special night out.

I think a few more traditional pub dishes ,like fish and chips should be kept on the menu. Scampi ,pies etc.It's got a bit of fancy foods ,I would call them. Very Nice but not suitable for a plain eater.

The best gravy in Dorset on the consistently good roast we have on a weekly basis .
Good wine and beer selection.
Cocktails are a bonus and the outside space is big with good seating arrangement

The food was very good with all six of us very pleased with all courses. The service was also very good however the service levels did drop towards the end of the evening as we were left waiting for our drinks order for 30 mins. Overall, a very good experience. Thanks 👍

Really disappointed it was such a reduced menu with very limited choices (brunch menu). We were expecting the full menu as it didn’t say anywhere that it is only the brunch menu sat 11-3 and nothing else.

Food was good. Service was really good at times but then a slow at times, like waiting for drinks to be brought over.

Loved the atmosphere and decor. Excited to go back and try normal menu choices!

I loved how accommodating the staff were but it found it very annoying when I got the bill and noticed that they had been using premium spirits in my drinks, I didn’t ask for this and I assumed it would be the house spirit. When you say “vodka and coke” I wouldn’t expect premium vodka to be used without asking me if that’s what is wanted.

I wonder if this was isolated or a natural practice to squeeze money out of customers?

Dined in rear garden booth which is very nice, because inside can be a bit soulless as experienced on other visits, service was also very good, had one of the Daily specials Chateaubriand for 2, requested cooked medium, arrived well done and quite dry and bland, shocked Chef could not just see from the look of it that it was well done and dry, nothing like medium at all, so should not have sent out like that but he did send so that says it all really, maybe if it was under done we could have sent back and requested a little more cooking but being it was already well over cooked we would have had to wait for new piece to be cooked, so did not bother sending back and just got on with chewing!!

We were also told its also 25% of champagne that night but we never got that either, and charged full price, so spent £150 on dinner for two that TBF was well below average and thats being polite! would I go again No would I recommend No, much better places to dine this being my 4th visit since this place opened cant say any have been good only very average, but with this being so poor on this visit I think its time for no more chances!

Also venue should not promote 25% off if not deducting that from the bill...........thats not ethical

Very good quality food and helpful staff with pride in what they do but 'reassuringly expensive', so not the place to go if you're on a tight budget.
