The low-beamed ceilings and wealth of nooks and crannies are a reminder that parts of this Dorset longhouse were built around 400 years ago. The simply furnished locals’ bar is comfortably rustic, with a large wooden settle on which to while away a winter’s evening beside the cosy log fire. The fine range of real ales from the nearby Hall & Woodhouse brewery is also available in the lounge bar, while a modern restaurant at the back completes the picture. The ever-changing menu ranges from light lunches and bar meals to pub favourites. The carte menu choices might include a starter of crispy duck and green onion spring roll, cucumber and sweet and sour sauce. Moving on, rabbit pie; steak and kidney pudding; and lamb shank are typical main course options, and home-made desserts like dark and white chocolate terrine make a fitting finale. There are lovely pastoral views over the surrounding farmland.
