Came on a Sunday, had a lovely roast lunch. Had the lamb shank and there was plenty of gravy and sauces available. The pub is cask marque certified and had plenty of beers on. Staff were very friendly and had a chilled atmosphere. There's also a beer garden.

Was looking for a decent Sunday lunch and walked by this pub on the way to another. We are so glad that we stopped here as the food was the best that we had had in a long time and the service was friendly and pleasant! The best vegetarian roast meal that I think I’ve ever had and i can be fussy 🤣 Well done for making a great impression on us and thank you. We will definitely be recommending this pub to others!

I had a truly wonderful experience here. The food was delightful (Sunday roast), it is a cask mark pub serving real ale (so I got another scan on the ale trail) and it also had a lot of prosecco - of which I drank a copious amount to get over the sadness of the women's netball loss in the World Cup final. Extra points for the fact they were showing the women's netball final and supporting women's sports. I would definitely come again if was in the Wareham area (which, with the brilliant tank museum just down the road, I may well do). Well done to the landlord and staff.
