Terrible food, I asked for gluten free tomato soup and was served a bowl of tomato passata. With sliced gluten free cardboard bread and tiny butter portion. My daughter then had rocky road ice cream which didn't look or taste very nice. Robbery.

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat at lunchtime. Lovely quaint pub The pub was empty although it was early. It was really cold with no heating. menu choice seemed good and bar staff pleasant but the food was dreadful. Side order of macaroni cheese was no more than 3 teaspoons of macaroni in a plain floury white sauce...

The food was produced within five minutes. The vegetables were tasteless and like cardboard. The beef was wafer thin,half cooked and stringy like chewing gum. I would not want another roast there even if they it free.

I had business in Blandford early morning, so traveled down the evening before and stayed here. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The Charlton is a "proper pub", with a healthy number of locals enjoying themselves, but it also serves excellent food which would not be out of place somewhere marketing themselves as a gastro-pub. Having dropped my bag...

Arranged to meet friends here for lunch and booked a table. Food was average (burgers were well overlooked) but the service was very poor. They were busy but there was no sensible system in place so it took a long time to both order and then pay at the end. Shame as it's been done up nicely but I doubt...

Booked a one night stay in the Carlton Inn whilst on business trip. Given keys to Room 6, which was extremely disappointing. The room does not smell very pleasant, blocked drain or damp? Poor value for money for a village Inn.

We stayed for one night at this hotel with a room in the stable block. The bed was uncomfortable, the room was in a poor state, loose toilet seat, rusty toilet brush cleaner. The floors creaked when anyone moved in the room above. No shower towels supplied. Vastly overpriced for a very basic not too clean room. The restaurant meal...

Been meaning to eat here for ages,seeing as we live only a 5 minute drive away. Can't fault the staff,they were lovely and friendly,we were well looked after. We both had the pork belly which was delicious,just not a fan of veg coming out in separate bowls...felt it was rather a small portion.. Loved my huge piece of chocolate brownie...
