Just stayed at this pub just for one night to enable us to visit Dorset Badger Watch with some friends, that is just up the road. A nice friendly welcome, great room (shame we didn't have time to try out the HUGE bath ), great food, nice atmosphere. But it is remote.

Room Tip: Have one of the four rooms out in what is called the skittle alley

One of the attractions is that the Brace is so secluded and therefore almost guarantees peace and quiet. Last time we visited, we walked for miles in the surrounding countryside but this time, at 6 months pregnant, we opted for food and blissful sleep. The food was excellent again - rabbit starter with venison to follow as a main ticked all the boxes for great game cuisine. Tomato and roasted garlic soup, fish cakes and an angel tower desert kept the missus and wriggler happy. We slept like babies in room 2 out the back in the converted skittle alley. Possibly our favourite place in Dorset.

We took our Mums here for a birthday lunch and weren't disappointed.
Although they don't cater specifically for kids, we had an area in the restaurant all to ourselves set up with a high chair, which was very comfortable apparently!
The cod & chips main was adapted to feed the little ones, and the wild boar sausages and venison burger special were hits with the adults. Proper good quality pub grub.
A range of real ales and friendly atmosphere makes this a good old fashioned village pub.

We stayed here for 1 night in April 15. The staff were friendly welcoming and attentive.
The room was pleasant and clean, huge bath! We had evening meal and breakfast the next morning, both we're great. We are vegetarians and they did their best to accommodate for us.
The only downfall was there are no central heating, only portable radiators, so was chilly in the bar and breakfast room.
