We popped in for a pint while at Camp Bestival. The young girl serving was very pleasant, friendly and efficient. The beer was good and the pub very comfortable. It is in a stunning village.

The online reviews are mixed. I can only go on my experience. We visited for pre wedding drinks and sandwiches. Service was good. Atmosphere and surroundings typical rural Dorset. Sandwiches were very good. Good selection of drinks.

Very limited menu unless you wanted a roast. They will make their starters into larger portions, so as it was a really hot day decided to go with that. We really just wanted a ploughmans but nothing available. I had scallops on a bed of...More

There are certain menu options which are labelled GF gluton free. It may be an idea to check their website menu beforehand to see if these suit your requirements? Hope this helps.
