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.
THERE IS NO RAILWAY STATION IN SHAFTESBURY!! In the review of the Foresters it states that the nearest station is Shaftesbury.
But there, everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses - Jerome K Jerome
On this day:
Robert the Bruce Crowned King of Scotland - 1306, slave trade is abolished in the British empire - 1807, World’s first passenger train service begins - 1807, Cambridge Sink In Boat Race - 1978
