Impossibly picturesque, this sixteenth-century thatched pub is tucked away down a steep and wiggling country lane but is well worth the effort to find it. Inside it’s all wooden floors, low beams, open fires and a welcoming bar that serves real ales, including some local brews. There are eight comfortable rooms – some above the pub, others in a converted skittle alley at the back – all of which come with their own well-appointed en-suite bathrooms.

The highly-rated restaurant serves local fish and game, including dishes such as garlic and herb marinated local venison, while the cheese board has a not-to-be-missed selection of Dorset cheeses.



Open all year.


Double rooms from £129 a night, including breakfast.
