I couldn't fault the service, the food and the extra mile the team went to make the evening really memorable. Daniel and James helped us put together a dedicated three course menu and took care of everything... More

We enjoyed a drink and dinner here. The beer was very good (they are in the Good Beer Guide) and the food was wholesome and tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient. Very good.

We met some friends here as we were all in the area and food reviews were very good. Seemed like a nice pub, but loud music playing, which made conversation difficult. It was turned down a bit on request, but if you want a meal and a catch up with friends, this is not the best place. No complaints at... More

Amazing Sunday Lunch you can choose up to six different meats you can have as many as you want although the price goes up depending how many you have. We both had two meats and there was plenty lots of veg very tasty. Good service will definitely go back.

Never heard of this place before, found it just by a quick google search for Sunday roasts in Poole. Phoned and booked, they only had one seat left, the place it self is very small so I would Pre-Book, if you havent Pre-Booked do not assume there is room for you. The Roasts come in 6 options from 1-6 meats... More
