Sad to report, yes and the food was truly awful (not just mine, all of ours), never has the word "chef" been abused so much.

Yes, it's certainly gone downhill with the new owners.

I ate there two weeks ago as part of a party of abt 25-30, the food was very good, apart from my pudding, which I just didn't like, everyone else who had the same enjoyed it. The service was fine. All in all a pretty good job by them.
Just shows that one persons bad experience, usually has an opposite, just a shame that people are too ready to report bad experience and hardly anyone bothers toreport a good one. I guess I will be accused of having a vested interest in The Dorset, but can assure that I don't. In fact as a "pub" I think it's pretty rank (other will surely disagree!), but the restaurant seems OK.

Blimey snow queen are they really sacking people for booking a bad lunch these days? Sounds like you've got a boss who needs to be told it's the 21st century

I haven't set foot in that pub for over 20 years having been told by the bearded man behind the bar to speak English or get out. He couldn't understand my Welsh accent when I asked for a coke.

I truly wished I taken onboard 'Nibbled' advise instead of going with gut feeling (excuse the pun!) Absolutely awful, can honestly say worst meal we've ever had! Never again! Think of school dinners cooked the day before!!! Dreadful!

I actually went there today for a works Christmas lunch.
I found the food to be very good and the portion sizes were excellent. Our food was hot, there was plenty of it and it was a reasonable price too! Our table was decorated with crackers and party poppers and we found the staff to be more than helpful and cheerful. Our whole party had a thoroughly good time!

High tides of 7m plus occur in February, March, April, September, October and November (spring and autumn). The 2000 floods were not tidal as they outlasted several tide cycles.

don't worry folks the pub changes hands in new year to somebody who can cook and serve beer.
