Bland roast
lis 2020 • Pary
We visited for a final Sunday roast before L2, and chose the Dorset based on previous visits when the food has been very good. We wish now we had gone elsewhere as our lunch was a disappointment. To be fair, the actual sirloin beef was very nice and generously portioned. The rest of the meal was very bland with the vegetables being boring and tasteless, a small ok’ish yorkie and thin gravy. The potatoes were not hot nor crisp. Basic skills in putting a tasty roast dinner together obviously missing in the kitchen at the moment.

Good service, average food
paź 2020
For a pub the prices are high but don't meet restaurant quality. Fish and chips esp disappointing and the chateaubriand (£60 for 2) only OK (not very large, a bit "chewy" and overcooked on the outside. Creative screening. Staff very friendly and attentive. Ales limited.

Good food and very welcoming
lis 2019 • Pary
We visited for a weekday lunch. The pub was warm and welcoming and dining area smart. There were quite a few diners so atmosphere was good. Food was very good - and reasonably priced. Service was friendly rather than polished and there was one error in our order but it is certainly somewhere we will visit again.

Fantastic location but disappointing breakfast.
sie 2019 • Znajomi
We stayed here for one night whilst walking The Weald Way. We stayed in the Old School House with lovely views of the fields on the estate. The room was superbly decorated, the beds amazingly comfortable and the bathroom was large with a great shower and a bath to soak those aching muscles! The staff were very friendly. Our only disappointment was the food. Being a vegetarian, the menu was extremely limited and the Sunday roast offered no meat alternative, just veg and potatoes and the pasta dish was quite plain and unimaginative.
Breakfast was very poor. There were three very basic cereals on offer, no fresh fruit or yoghurt and limited cooked options again with no thought to non-meat eaters. We weren't asked if we wanted more tea and coffee.
We loved our stay here but better food would have made it perfect.

Perfect on a sunny afternoon
kwi 2019 • Znajomi
We came here as a stop off in our way back from a morning out, and the weather was so lovely we simply HAD to stop for lunch!

The parking is a little awkward out front, but you should be able to find a spot.

The bar inside is quaint, and the staff were very pleasant, even though we didn’t book in, they advised if we grabbed a free table outside we were more than welcome.

The prices were more gastro-pub but I felt the quality more than made up for it!

Nicely cooked locally sourced food
mar 2019 • Znajomi
Three of us had luncheon. Booking is recommended as it was busy throughout the lunchtime and afternoon. I choose Creamed Cods Roe on Toast as it rather unusual. It was fine but in hindsight I should have gone for the Scotch Egg with Mustard Mayonnaise. I then had the Buckhurst Park Venison Burger with Blue Cheese & Pommes Frites. The burger was delicius as it was charr grilled. French fries were lovelly too. I had Chocolate and Hazelnut Brownie, Hot Fudge Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert. The brownie was more of a cake than a brownie but the hot chocolate fundhe sauce saved it. We finished with coffee which is large and delicious. The friends I were with had been before and enjoyed it and I found it equally splendid. The only downside is Haveys Bitter or Larkins Bitter were the only beers available by draught. Nothing special or unsual so dissappointing on the beer front. A porter would have been nice.

Understandably Buzzing
lis 2018
This was only the second time that we have had the pleasure of staying at The Dorset Arms but we were immediately made to feel most welcome with a warm. friendly greeting from Emily who served us in the well-stocked Bar. This time we had booked the Knole Suite and this proved to be every bit as comfortable and well-appointed as we had hoped. By the way when you are advised to Reserve a Table for Dinner - you had better believe it! High Quality and good choice of food, a varied Wine List and excellent Service throughout ensured that the Restaurant was packed full of appreciative Diners amidst a general background of lively happy conversation. In fact it was a real pleasure to be a part of such a lively scene. We have even fallen in love with the local Buckhurst Park Sausages! Great flavours and texture. A super Breakfast the following morning, again with expert friendly Service, ensured that we will return just as soon as we can. Thank you everyone involved for making this a truly memorable occasion.
