The Holme Bush Inn
You can hear the enticing bustle of this well-known Dorset pub before you even step inside the building. From the moment we entered we felt welcome, thanks to the warm atmosphere and the friendly staff.
We sat in the large dining area overlooking the vast and beautiful pub grounds, and sampled some delicious local ale from the bar’s excellent range. The à la carte menu offers a wide selection of home-cooked pub favourites. I opted for the fresh, perfectly crisp whitebait to start our meal, while my partner’s chicken liver pâté was served with a sweet, rich chutney for the perfect ﬂavour combination. For the main course, it was difﬁcult to look past the grill options. My juicy steak was cooked perfectly to my liking, and served with chunky chips and a choice of sauces, while my partner’s classic gammon steak was accompanied by eggs and pineapple. We couldn’t resist the apple and rhubarb crumble for dessert, but with brownies, cheesecake and Eton Mess also on offer, there’s something for everyone.
The gardens boast views over The Holme Bush Inn’s 14 acres of pasture, and have plenty of seating for al fresco dining. The heated patio and blankets provided will keep you warm on chillier evenings. There are also camping and caravanning facilities, as well as six beautiful en-suite canvas cottages for a tranquil glamping experience.
With great food at attractive prices, friendly service and excellent accommodation options, a visit to The Holme Bush Inn is a must.
