Popular with villagers as much as visiting fishermen, cycling clubs and ramblers, this handsome, thatched flint-stone free house is ideally situated for riverside walks. Flagstone floors, a wood-burning stove and solid oak beams create a comfortable setting for a traditional English inn that offers a friendly welcome, a range of well-kept real ales and simple, carefully cooked food. Menu choices include grilled Portobello mushroom filled with Dorset Blue Vinny and salad; duo of diver-caught Portland scallops and cod fillet with butternut squash purée and chive butter sauce; pan-fried duck breast with sweet chilli stir-fry; and lemon and lime tart with summer berry compôte. There's also a deli counter and a selection of baguettes and jackets.
