The four of us had an evening meal, three of us had steak which was cooked to perfection. Also the starters were excellent, all the staff were friendly and helpful and had the best evening meal for a long time.

We complained twice on the night that the rump steak was tough. No apologies were made, or any remedial action offered. The fillet steak was also tasteless. One of the puddings was very rubbery presumably due to being microwaved for too long or too many times. They did not respond to an email from me about these issues

Meal took over half an hour on a quiet sunday, when meal arrived the mince beef was cheap and full of bouncy fat, absolutely terrible. What made it worse the manager/ supervisor, was running about the bar with a bleeding nose, overall not impressed by the whole pub... not good people - wont be back.

Jim F am very sorry but I believe you have made this review at the wrong location as you have stated the manager/supervisor had a bleeding noise and this has not happened at The Quay Inn Wareham so very strange to read this , thanks More

Poor fish and chips and small portions. Puddings were very badly presented. Overwhelming smell of smoke coming from the self_cooked steaks. Not a pleasant evening out.

We were given the Family room.This might not be quite as good as it sounds as the bunk beds in the recess made it feel a bit cramped and there was only the 2 of us. The room was perfectly clean and a lovely view over the Quay and river. The ensuite small but again perfectly clean. I think that... More
