We keep returning to this most friendly and professionally run inn, as we just know we will be treated to a great evening and a first rate meal. We are astonished by the few silly negative reviews here on TripAdvisor. The welcome is always warm and engaging - the landlady is an absolute gem - and one cannot imagine otherwise... More

This was my second stop at the Black Dog, the first being for a Friday lunch on my way to a cottage (brilliant onion soup on a cold winters day). I felt compelled to write a review this time as we were so impressed. We returned to the Black Dog, complete with our black dog, and were made feel immediately... More

Called in on the off chance of getting a table, the bar was very busy with a large party. We were offered a table if prepared to wait, we were more than happy to wait. We both had the trout, one with bacon and one with black pudding, both meals were amazing. Would highly recommend.

Haven driven past many times we finally had the opportunity to pop in for a quick lunch. Good parking at the rear of the pub and a nice garden for when it's warmer. Nice atmosphere with lots of black and white photos of stars past and some present. Friendly landlady and local chap enjoying his lunch but happy to chat... More

The inn is signed on the A303. It takes 5-10 minutes to reach the inn - and it is well worth the slight detour. The inn has an extensive lunchtime menu, a friendly welcome and top quality food.

We use the Black Dog reasonably regularly now, it is always consistent, exceptionally high quality food - the only issue is deciding what to have from the extensive menu - could not recommend highly enough - Just Great

We traveled to the Black Dog from Bournemouth to meet friends for Sunday lunch. It took us 1 and 1/2 hours to get there (I blame the satnav) but it was well worth it. The pub is a 15th century inn with real fires, inglenook fireplace, snug and private dining area. The owners were away and therefore managed by a... More

Having driven past this pub at odd times of day and night for more than 40 years the opportunity finally arose to visit. To the question can we have dinner, the answer was of-course....and we really enjoyed it. Rib-eye and calves liver both excellent. Locals both real and friendly, and a welcoming and attentive landlady. Extensive blackboard menu. Cosy feel.... More

Went here for daughters birthday meal.Found it to be a very welcoming place with an amazing full menu. Certainly not a "chain pub"!We had the belly pork (think it was nearly half a pig-huge portion) and the steak with peppercorn sauce. All dishes were tasty and piping hot. The sweet courses are all made locally by people in the village... More

A disappointing 1st time meal. Have visited on a couple of occasions, being new to the village but just for a drink. We had a friend visiting and thought we would give it a try which made it worse as he was paying! We felt that the food was overpriced for the quality given out. The duck was absolutely huge...
