This pub with costly b&b trades solely on its location with good views of Corfe Castle although the view can only be seen from the bar and garden. Our overnight room had filthy windows, a broken curtain and no complimentary toiletries other than an aged soap dispenser. For the price charged we had expected a substantially better standard. The evening food exhibited lazy cooking with poor quality ingredients although the hake was fresh. The starters seemed to have come out of a cheap supermarket packet and the steak was appalling. They were unable to offer breakfast until 8.45am. Breakfast had no fresh fruit, they had to hunt for some yogurt and white bread. The cooked breakfast had poor quality ingredients.
The rear car park of this establishment is simply dangerous and likely to damage your vehicle

Beautiful garden with great views overlooking corfe Castle and a very relaxed vibe. I love sitting in the loft on the sofa in the evening. Good cider and ales as well as good food for all. The staff are all very friendly and always have good service

Such a lovely pub, really lovely atmosphere. The food is always very good and the wine is delicious! Staff are very friendly and always happy to help. Beautiful garden overlooking Corfe Castle...just the most amazing views!

Visited with family to celebrate my Dads 56th birthday today. Have been before during week when food, views and service was good hence choosing this location for family event.

Went on a Sunday lunch time and was extremely disappointed. Sunday menu was very limited - no chicken at all on menu. Had to wait 65 minutes for food to arrive. When it did three of the 5 meals ordered were cold. Roast beef was almost inedible - hardly cooked, very chewy and full of gristle so landed up leaving most of it. Waitress asked on seeing that beef had been uneaten if "it was ok" - we replied "no it is uncooked, very difficult to chew, and full of string". Only response was "ok I will tell the chef" - no apology, no offer of discount on meal or free drink! Very poor customer service.

Had to wait another 30 minutes after finishing first course to be asked if we wanted desert menu! Decided to avoid another long wait so just ordered coffee - should have known better - coffee took a further 25 minutes to arrive.

Staff simply could not cope with volume of customers and overall quality of food was poor not to mention coming with a hefty price tag of over £100!!

Will not be visiting again

Service chronically slow, even though loads of staff standing around. Adult food OK,, children's portions minute...2 chicken goujons & 8 chips for £6, had to stop at supermarket & buy more food because kids were still hungry....disappointing!
