About the Pub

This 300 year old village inn, is deceptively hidden behind a row of cottages. The bar and restaurant areas are cosy, boasting a log fire, and are popular with locals and visitors. The large garden is perfect for alfresco dining and hosts a beer and cider festival. Quality home-cooked food is available lunch-time and evenings. As well as the two permanent ales, two guests are recommended by customers alongside two real ciders. The pub also does bed and breakfast and is an ideal base for exploring the Dorset countryside.
