We bought the pub at the end of June 2008 and opened on the 31st of July to a pub packed full of villagers, friends and lots of our customers. With the Gaggle being such a large pub we decided to put some sofas in front of the fire so customers could relax and just have a drink or eat in the dining room if they preferred.
Being local farmers as well as publicans we have decided to concentrate on good traceable local produce where possible. With Dorset having such an abundance of wonderful produce this has proved an easy task. The Gaggle now provides proper modern pub food in old fashioned surroundings.
