E TA left this review about The Paddocks

Blandford's newest watering hole does little to compensate for the closure of both The Dolphin and The Railway in recent months. It tries to brand itself as a wine bar, but in reality it is nothing more than a general purpose bar despite the availability of tapas-style platters and various other snacks, which were, to be fair, not bad. The converted shop has a bar area at the front with various seating styles, while the rear room, reached up a short flight of steps, is a dining area and function room called The Enclosure. Staff were friendly and the locals were tolerant, not bad for Blandford. There was no real ale despite a board outside saying there might be. We had pints of Malthouse IPA, the best offering they had, while a cider which made Woodpecker look good failed to impress. The wine list had one or two interesting offerings. OK for horsing around but not somewhere to enjoy a decent pint.
