The Lugger Inn Restaurant is now one of the most popular in the area. The range of meals is extensive and the highly qualified and experienced chefs prepare some of the best home-cooked meals. Much of the produce, including steaks, meats, bread and sausages are locally sourced. The steaks and meat for the best selling food item, Steak and Ale Pie, are from Dorset reared Longhorn cattle, a herd which is renowned for its taste and tenderness. The fish ‘n chips with its secret home-made beer batter is unique. The recently refurbished Restaurant serves food from 8a.m. with breakfast through lunchtimes and into late evenings. The self-service Sunday Carvery is very popular and advance booking is advisable
We have a sample menu for viewing. We also have daily specials both in the Bar and in the Restaurant.
Besides the Restaurant and bar, there is a large beer garden with tables and benches and it is very popular on dry and sunny days.
