We tend to stick to the classics and not mess with them too much. Instead focus on quality of ingredients and attention to detail in the kitchen. Pies, Sunday roast, fish and chips and a good curry are part of our culture and what people expect to see on
Came in for pie on Thursday and we were not disappointed. All three of us had different pies and they were great. Would highly recommend

Fish and chips are served on Friday nights from 6.30. Please ring ahead to book a table on any other night. We have a delightful beer garden and a peaceful campsite to the rear. If you're looking for accommodation we have a bunkhouse which sleeps upto 10
Tapas was on the menu. We tried a selection of the food. It was fine but not as tasty as I would expect for Tapas.Having said that, we were made very welcome by the locals and the landlord and will go back another night when they have a different menu on.
I've never visited the Stalbridge Arms before, when we arrived it had only just opened but we were welcomed in and offered a drink and a food menu straight away which was good. Manager was really lovely and friendly. The food was so, so worth the money. I had the pie, the pastry was so light and crispy. The roasted veg and chorizo was a great accompaniment. My other half had a burger which he said was gorgeous. All really hot and served in good time. My daughter had a jacket potato which wasn't actually on the menu but the chef was more than happy to accommodate us. Over all, we were extremely satisfied and would definitely return!

A delightful pub, traditional and down to earth. The steak and ale pie was quite simply delicious with a flaky pastry top. The steak soft and full of flavour, with quality new potatoes and lovely veg. A large and very filling portion. Salted caramel ice cream was the best ever. Highly recommended.

Having moved to Sturminster 11 months ago we have eaten in the Swan many times and sampled most of the menu but never tried the Sunday Roast until today .. 2 courses for Â£14 saw a full plate of well cooked roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings placed before us followed by a fruity crumble desert with custard..good value and well cooked dinner..great hosts and attentive staff ..recommended.

We offer a good wholesome home cooked food from our menu and specials board which changes regularly. (Menu available on our web site) We serve food all day every day, so when ever your peckish come and see us. We try our absolute best to cater for everyon
Booked a table for 6 plus a young baby. Gentleman most helpful with booking and wife's onion allergy. Greeted warmly, served drinks and shown to table. Fairly quiet but got busy later on. Mains of Hunters chicken, fish and chips, scampi and jacket with prawns all cooked and presented well and very tasty. Puddings all delicious. Wife had cheese board which was huge, but none went to waste!! Staff were very good and made a great fuss of the baby with us. Little things like that make a big difference to the whole experience. Good food, service and value for money. Highly recommend for a good pub meal.

UNDER NEW PRIVATE OWNERSHIP! The Green Man is currently under going renovations and will be open in July! More info to come...
We had dinner here recently and were impressed by the quality of the meals and service. We ordered from the Specials menu; my wife had the confit duck leg and I had the roast hake. The duck leg was very large, full of flavour, and went well with the accompanying veg. My hake was perfectly cooked, as were the potatoes and butternut squash bisque, which was delicious. We both enjoyed our mains so much that we decided to have a dessert each, creme brulee and a chocolate brownie, both of which were very good and the decaff coffee was excellent. Service was also excellent throughout and we were encouraged to sample our drinks, an italian red and a, new to me, Ringwood Brewery ale, before ordering and both were very good, the wine in particular. Two courses each and two drinks came to around Â£60, which we thought was good value given the standard of our meals as it was evident that some skill had gone into their cooking. As we live locally we will certainly visit again.Thank you for your lovely comments - we hope to see you again!

We ate here for Mother's Day lunch having booked in advance and given a time we had to vacate the table by in order for them to turn it. Arrived and it was immediately obvious that they were stretched to capacity as the queues were forming at the bar and carvery making it difficult to get served or travel through to our table.Most of us decided on large carveries and one person ordered steak. Back up to the bar to order the food and there was another wait as an issue with a lost reservation caused a backlog of people waiting to be served.We then queued for the carvery. It took 10 minutes to get to the front of the queue.Once served and back at our table we tucked in. Carvery is such a difficult thing to get right because your catering for the masses. Unfortunately the beef was well overdone and quite dry, the pork was ok but the lamb was my favourite. The potatoes were done well but sadly were cold. The broccoli was slightly underdone but edible. Other veg were nice and the gravy was lovely.Steak on the other hand should be a doddle and is one of the dishes I like to use as a comparison. The steak was cooked to the requested temperature (rare) but unfortunately was tough, dry and chewy. I don't know if it had been frozen at some point but I wasn't really that impressed with the quality of it.Only two of us had dessert. The Brownie (dry and in need of more ice cream to accompany it) and the syrup sponge (lovely). I'd like to try the place again when it's not so busy as from the other reviews it sounds like they might have had an off day and I recognise that it was extremely busy. It's a shame that our experience on this occasion was an average one.When you dealt with them the staff were efficient and polite.

A quintessential Dorset Village pub & Cottage. Located on the edge of the Cranborne chase, area of outstanding natural beauty. Fireplace, pool table, darts, great beer & freshly prepared food. Open 7 days a week.
We hired out the accommodation the pub has to rent. Simply put...it is the best little cottage we have stayed at with our dogs. Immaculate finish, more than enough room and so clean. A real gem that we are already planning to book again. Desi was lovely and really couldn't do enough for us. So helpful. The pub is literally 5m from the front door. They do a nice range of beer and drinks. The food was splendid.Location, really centrally placed to get to poole or Weymouth or further afield should you wish. It took us around 35-40 minutes to get to West Lulworth. Thank you both for making our trip that much better.

An enjoyable visit on a very rainy day. This is a very attractive old inn, and Lance and his team are working hard to make it a success. The food is very good, decent wine and Hall & Woodhouse beers.
