E TA left this review about The Rivers Arms

This unusual village pub was closed for 10 years while previous owners tried repeatedly – and thankfully failed – to get planning permission to turn it into housing. The site is on a slope which provides excellent views over the neighbouring countryside. At the top of the slope are some chalet-style huts for B&B as well as limited parking. There is more parking on the road level at the front. You enter the pub through a convservatory, then into the ground floor bar which is cosy and has a rustic feel. There is a lounge area upstairs which has a woodburner and leads to a timber covered terrace. It’s all new, the current owners having taken the opportunity completely to reorganise the interior which had been gutted in preparation for conversion. The food is freshly cooked, interesting and ranges from baguettes to Sunday roasts and curries. Two ales on, Yeovil Stargazer and Old Golden Hen, in very good condition. An excellent base for a break in rural Dorset which is off the beaten track and largely grockle-free.
