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.
