I recently visited here with my partner and we had a lovely evening. We were served by a nice girl called Bethany. She was very friendly and added to our experience. I will definitely be visiting again.

We recently visited the Yachtsman with 34 children and parents, whilst staying at Rockley Park and playing in a junior football tournament in Wimborne. The pub, and in particular the South African manager and the two girls serving us, were absolutely fantastic in their dealings...More

Food was okay, although thought it was fairly expensive. £2 for a children’s Capri Sun?! In all it was £50 for two adults and a children’s meal with one drink each, which i think is fairly overpriced for a standard pub lunch. Staff seemed to...More
