Very nice dinner. Starter's here are typically in the small side but mains are quite large. We all had 3 courses with no complaints. The food and ambience is just not quite up with The Beckford, or The Red Lion.

Nestled in a 17th-century thatched cottage in the heart of Dorset, The Museum Inn is a 2 AA Rosette-awarded gastro pub, and a member of The Good Pub Guide's Pub Group of the Year 2016. Regularly named in national newspapers’ pub guide listings, The Museum was named No 6 in the UK by The Independent.

Working with fine regional suppliers and championing the best of British cooking, The Museum Inn menu offers a hearty yet refined selection. Enjoy pub classics of fish pie or handmade burger, alongside dishes like honey-glazed duck breast with seared duck liver and roasted Jersey royals, and golden fried gnocchi with broad beans, pea puree, asparagus and rocket.

A range of creative, hand-crafted desserts are the epitome of indulgence, with offerings like chocolate marquise with mango sorbet and caramel sauce, or pink pistachio meringue with tangy marinated raspberries. Rich coffees and fine rare teas are sourced from Teapigs tea merchants, and an excellent wine list compiles a mix of 70 classic and New World bottles.

Open wood burning fires and flagstone floors create a rustic countryside ambience at The Museum Inn Blandford. The Museum Inn is also home to 'The Shed' a quirky private dining space.

    We ordered the roast which was mediocre in taste and insufficient in quantity. We are used to paying between £10 to £12 for a Sunday roast and were shocked to find the menu price was £18.50. Had it not been my wife's birthday treat, we would have left without ordering for that reason alone. I assumed it would be worth the extra money for a special meal. How wrong I was!! As soon as we had finished we asked for the bill. We were appalled to find 10% service charge had been added too. I read the menu very closely and found in very small print at the bottom that a "discretionary service charge" would be added. I refused to pay that and it was removed. We left in disgust - never again.

    On my arrival my booking confirmation had not gone through to the restaurant, I did feel a little let down and had to show the booking confirmation on my mobile. The food was okay but my starter was not great. My choice was to scallops and it arrived with what looked like 1 scallop, cut into 5 pieces.
