Dorset Reports

Shaftesbury, Dorset

Review of Shaftesbury by Tom Thatcher on August 2nd, 2006
The Foresters at Donhead is an excellent pub with really nice and original food. The beer is well-kept and the wine list is good and without too much of a mark-up. BUT: THERE IS NO RAILWAY STATION IN SHAFTESBURY!! In the review of the Foresters it states that the nearest station is Shaftesbury.
