Consistantly good, you will love the menu and the food. In summer sit outside. Enjoy the view down Gold Hill. Local museum next door worth a visit as well. Excellent coffee, cakes and snacks. Probably need to book for lunch. Section with local tourist trinkets. Well supported by locals. Close to Park Walk with great views of Blackmore Vale.

Visited shaftesbury to walk down and back up Gold Hill, got hungry, sat outside this amazing restaurant with an amazing view down Gold Hill. Perfect setting and perfect food. Had a delicious homemade pie with salad. Other classics and specials on the menu but this really hit the spot. Staff friendly, professional and efficient. Will definitely return if in the area again.

Shaftsbury is famous for its Golden hill and if you want to see it from the top and grab a bight to eat then this the ideal spot!
The menu is good with daily specials but you have to be tempted by the the range of home made pies. The portions are good to generous and good value for money.
The clientele included what seemed to be regular locals, which is a good sign, the staff were friendly and helpful and overall the experience was good.
