Super pub food and atmosphere. Stopped in by chance without a booking and ordered from the specials menu. Delicious food, quick service and really friendly and welcoming (to us non-locals too!). Enjoyed sampling the local cider too! Thanks 😊

Honestly the best roast dinner I've ever had. My Mrs didn't appreciate that comment but it is what it is!! I never leave reviews but credit where credit is due. Unbelievable price to quality (and quantity) ratio. Service was 10/10 too. 👏 👏

A few years ago this was a poor pub that was not at all pleasant. A place to be avoided. Under the current management it is a vibrant and welcoming pub with friendly and helpful staff. Outside of the peak “tourist season” it is frequented by locals. At other times visitors to Wareham will find a warm welcome. There is a decent range of ales from a variety of breweries. These are well cared for. It is a great place to pop into for a pint. A few months ago I ate there for the first time. We booked a table and were seated comfortably. The menu is more than adequate. Not too extensive but offers a good choice over three courses and with “specials”. I have eaten there many times subsequently and have always found the service to be efficient and punctual and the food to be very good. The ‘Horse and Groom’ is my pub of choice in Wareham.
