The Martyrs Inn

The Martyrs Inn, in the historic village of Tolpuddle, near Dorchester, Dorset, is a delightful country pub serving our local, visitor and tourism trade. We offer a range of great home cooked food, using locally sourced ingredients, we work hard to be exc

We ate here last week for the first time in ages. We went for a fairly quick one course evening meal, while waiting for some friends to arrive.I would have liked a Chicken, Ham & Leak pie. This is on the menu, but I was told they didn't have any. I chose, instead, the lamb hotpot. I have to say that it was very nice. My wife went for the beef lasagne which, although it was tasty, she said that the sauce was very light on meat content.

We were recommend to try here by the guy who owned our holiday cottage. He was right, very good food, the crab timbale is excellent. Small menu but both our meals were good. The beer was good too. The exterior was under going renovation work and was covered in scaffolding when we visited.Thank you for your review, We cook our food fresh so we have to limit the menu down and there tends to be a little wait however we think its worth it. Thanks for looking past the scaffolding as we are trying to make the outside as good as the beer and food.

Coming back from Dorchester, my friend and l stopped for supper at The Sun.We were warmly welcomed and shown to a table quite near the buffet serving roasts with an array of veggies, yorkshire puds, gravies and condiments. Quite a selection! Clearly a popular choice.I chose whitebait as a starter, delicious, and my friend had haddock and spring onion fishcakes. Again, excellent. She queued at the buffet for a huge plate of turkey, beef, with the aforesaid yorkshire pud, and a mound of freshly cooked vegetables. It smelled great and l was told, tasted as good as it looked! l chose off the daily specials menu, monkfish tail sitting on crushed potatoes with saffron sauce. It was a very tiny tail and cooked well but the sauce was very oily and separated in the dish. It would have been better to have served the sauce separately as the bowl was swimming in it. However, although l didn't finish it, it was quite tasty.Dont think l would venture to try it again.The Sun is a great place to eat with a lovely real fire burning and a very busy, buzxy atmosphere. A popular place to eat,do try it if you are in the area.

Called in here with several filthy friends after a morning of hard conservation work in a nearby river. The pub is lovely, the staff welcoming (despite our appearance!), the toilets clean and well stocked! A nice surprise. The menu was varied and interesting and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food they ordered. A really lovely lunch was had and very much enjoyed. Highly recommend to everyoneMany thanks for your review. We're used to customers who've been on long walks or had a hard day working so we don't mind how you look! It's always nice to hear that the little extras are appreciated and we really value your feedback on the food. We hope to see you again soon at The Spyway. Thanks again The Spyway team

Set in a lovely rural setting this is a place you must eat at if visiting the area. We went for lunch and the staff were attentive to all your needs, a lovely pub inside with olde world charm. The food was both well presented and of ample proportions, with out a doubt one of the best sirloin steaks I have ever had. Great ales, what more could you wish for. Make sure you give the Thimble a visitThank you for your kind words, our staff work tirelessly to make sure that all our guests enjoy their time with us so I am pleased that it has been noticed. Our steaks are from a local supplier who is just up the road from us and every piece of meat that we get from them is always superb. We hope that if you are in the area again that you will come and visit us again.

A very nice and welcoming pub, set in a pretty village. There is plenty of parking. Relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. There is a very good menu with something to please everyone. The food was delicious and nicely presented. A great dessert menu. The cheese board was amazing. A little expensive for pub food but the food was delicious and we would definitely go again.

This is a very small traditional style pub with some quirky decoration. When we arrived at about 18:15 on a Friday night it was quiet but nearly all of the tables were reserved, we were lucky to get the last free one. The pub quickly filled up and it was getting really busy by the time we left.I can see why it has such a good reputation for food - the steak & ale pies we ordered were probably some of the best we've ever eaten. In fact all of the food, which is genuinely home cooked, looked lovely. At the bar there was a really good choice of cask ales and both of my pints were well kept - clear with a nice head.All of the staff were cheerful and obviously wanted everyone to have a good night out.If this place had more space I'm sure they could double or triple their turnover but maybe it would then end up losing it's cosy charm.

The New Inn

Reviewed By Ellada B

Great breakfast, lovely building, lovely staff, cute little village. Perfect value for money. We didn't have dinner here but stayed in the B&B. Very clean and nice, modern en suite room. We were very lucky to find a room here during a very busy weekend, after another property, Anglebury House in Wareham, and Booking.com messed us about and cancelled our booking. The New Inn looked a million times better and we had a great night here. They were very accommodating despite we booked at the last minute and late in the evening. When I visit the area again, I will definitely stop here, but I will book directly and not through Booking.com which was a disaster with terrible communication and lies.

Reviewed By Christine M

I visited this lovely cosy pub with my friend who lives in the village. We had dinner which consisted of bread with balsamic and olive oil for dipping and calamari to share as a starter. The calamari was one of the best for a long time, not rubber bands that were tasteless but morsels of the freshest seafood lightly battered with sauce for dipping. Bread was fresh and olive oil tasted of good quality. We followed with crayfish linguine which was exquisite. Lots of delicate tasting fish in a creamy and garlicky sauce which was so plentiful we struggled to finish it all. Wine was also excellent quality and not overpriced. I live in central Dorchester and sadly do not drive so being here was a really treat and if I was nearer I would definitely frequent this pub on a regular basis and get to know the owners and the regulars. It is also dog friendly and the lovely waitress made a fuss of our dog and there was even a biscuit for her! We are planning another visit very soon when we are next due another “girlie night out!”Hi Christine,Thank you for your feedback and kind words. We are so chuffed you all had a lovely time.
