We'd been out for the day while on holiday in Dorset and we were looking for a decent pub, with good food and a beer garden, as it was a warm day.
We chose The Kings, because it had good reviews, however, to be frank, it was pretty disappointing.
We were directed to the rear garden, where we had a couple of drinks. We waited a while because they weren't ready to serve.
I ordered a "Homemade Macaroni Cheese" (as stated on the menu) with garlic bread and I can honestly say that it's the WORST mac cheese I've ever had the misfortune to taste. I eat out a lot and I enjoy cooking at home and THIS was NOT what I would expect of food from a pub that has been named "Pub of the Year!" It was absolutely swimming in grease( butter,) and I'm afraid to say I left most of it. I didn't send it back because I'd waited over an hour for my meal and I was hungry. I can't honestly remember what my partner ordered. I'm afraid we paid and left quickly and we won't return.
I have to add that the staff were friendly enough, but the pub itself seems "tired" and a bit grubby. Not a great experience.

Accommodated an extended family of 15 at an hours notice. Service was excellent and food was also really good. Would recommend and will probably come back if I’m the area again

We had lunch here, the beer garden was nice to sit out in. The staff and service were very good. The food was average and the price too..I would go back and would say it’s average.

Not far from my hotel in Wareham, it was the real ale that attracted me but I mainly went to eat. Did not regret this. Good simple menu with food choices for the day. Found the portions just right and the quality very good. Only 3/4 minutes away from the more touristy river area I found the food cheaper and better. Would highly recommend a visit
