My wife and I came down to Dorset a few weeks back to visit friends. We were staying at Rockley park and as the Yachtsman is conveniently located a 10min walk away, so we decided to haver some dinner there.

The pub is decorated well and has a warm and friendly feeling about it. We decided to eat in the bar as opposed to the restaurant, as we were given the choice. The food was great. I had the Steak and Ale pie and my wife had the fish and chips. Both meals were well cooked and highly enjoyable.

Our visit was made even more enjoyable by the young lady working behind the bar, Alice. She was incredibly cheerful, polite and helpful from the moment we arrived to the time we left. We had a great chat about rugby and she gave us some brilliant recommendations of historical/coastal places to visit during our stay. Following her advice we were not disappointed, so big thanks to her.

A great place to visit and we would highly recommend.

Nice friendly place to have a decent and reasonably priced meal. All the staff are a credit to Hall and Woodhouse and always make us welcome.
Lola our Cocker Spaniel particularly likes the attention she gets from all the team and likes that she can come along and enjoy a afternoon or evening out with her Mum and Dad.

Popped in here as early to book in - had snacks - Whitebate - really lovely not fatty - and Ploughmans - this was exceptional - MASSIVE come on a meat platter - had loads of items, salad, guerkins - eggs - and 5 thick slices of cheese - a talking point. Staff were very friendly and helpful - really nice lunch to start the holiday.
