This is a far cry from plush, modern, London fine dining - a bit of a step back in time in an endearing and quaint way. It is the antithesis of modern & fashionable. We stopped for dinner at the end of a midweek break...More

This gorgeous place was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. Unusual and quirky but amazing well cooked and presented food. A lovely change to the normal chain type restaurants. A lovely end to our Purbeck break and thoroughly recommend the experience visiting this area.

Lovely good, dog friendly and good service. They could do with a kids menu though. The ice-cream from the shop is excellent and a big hit with the kids though.

They managed to squeeze us in for a a late table for 4 and we had a lovely relaxing dinner. Lovely service and great food especially the skate wing and the kofta. Love the retro look and mix and match crockery and cutlery

You're not very likely to stumble across this place but if you are in the Purbeck area it is well worth seeking out. Menu is variable both at lunch and supper and it can get very busy (there were no garden seats available the day...More
