I ordered Chicken, which came in large inedible lumps, and the Roast Potatoes were hard inside & out, They changed the food for Pork, Belly, which I have tasted better and the same hard Roast...

This was our first visit to Tarrant Monkton which proved to be one of the most beautiful villages in Dorset with around 40% of the houses having thatched rooves. The village is too small to support a pub without outside custom and there are brown signposts to the pub from at least three miles away and at one point two...

Stayed here for four days and it was just perfect. The rooms were built at the back of the pub and were very quiet. The room had a small entrance hall with bathroom off to one side and the bedroom in front. It was all spotlessly clean. We ate in the bar three nights and the food was excellent. There...

I cannot say enough nice things about this pub. We came across it by accident but they kindly found us a space. The food was out of this world tasty and all freshly prepared from the bread to the burgers. Can't wait to return.
