Stopped for lunch on a Friday (no booking made) on way down to Bridport. A lovely character pub, toasty warm on a very wet and cold day. I had scampi and chips and my husband game pie with mash. The game pie had rabbit, pigeon, pheasant and venison with a freshly baked pastry crust. The food arrived on really hot... More

Lovely country pub. You walk in and you receive a warm greeting. We went for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. Great choice of meats& vegetables. Great selection of dessert options to be chosen from a menu and brought back to you, tea or coffee after a must. They serve local beers and guest ciders, you are bid farewell by... More

Popped over to the Winyards for a quick lunch having heard some good reports from friends. Saturday lunchtime was quite busy but we were given a warm welcome and had no problem getting a table. There was a hard frost outside but despite a roaring wood fire it was quite chilly. There's not a huge menu (and no senior citizens... More

Stayed for one night in room 2 on December 16. We were simply amazed by the quality of the room comfortable, spacious, and with an excellent range of in room amenities. The adjoining pub is steeped in history and friendly staff greeted us and made us and our dog very welcome. We dinned there in the evening and also had... More

Pub has a good feel in the bar area lovely log burning stove, the dining room is a bit cold comfort though. The food was good, they do a great burger, the deserts are overpriced I feel, it would be nice to see a few new things on the menu.

Checking in is in the bar, and this was busy, so there was a wait. The room was ideal, well priced, and larger than I had expected. Fresh milk was offered for tea and coffee so you could avoid UHT milk in little plastic containers . The bar had a great atmosphere, we only had a chessboard with a glass... More

An extremely comprehensive menu, service cheerful (be aware obviously at some times, the bar will also be full of clients so an occasional wait for a few mins is to be expected) Food is well prepared, cooked and very tasty, and definitely well priced, a lovely setting, with fantastic views across the countryside( especially lovely to be sat in the...

Booked 10 days in advance for a table of 5 with a dog. When we arrived the large table had a reserved sign however was occupied by others. When I made myself known at the bar, the waitress was extremely dismissive of me and said they had received the booking and pointed to the main restaurant and said "plenty tables... More

We arrived late and they were very busy but staff were very friendly and obliging and found us a table. We were told that there may be a delay but the service was still prompt. We ordered sirloin steaks and they were cooked to perfection as we ordered and were very nice. The only criticism we had was the lack... More
