Found the Indian sharing platter, whilst nice, rather expensive. Had the plaice fillets which went down well. Enjoyed a couple of pints of Butcombe real ale. Extensive menu with smaller portions available. Not very disabled friendly with entrance steps.

Really like the hope and have eaten there many times. The food is good home made dishes and typical pub stuff, nothing spectacular but nothing disappointing either. The beer is very good - consistently excellent Harveys and the family who run it are very friendly.

Hi there, we are travelling by ferry next Saturday evening and would just like to double check whether you welcome dogs? We have a well behaved pug travelling with us and would like dinner somewhere he can join us given he will be stuck in the car for the duration of the ferry crossing!
