Good Pub Guide Recommended

Handsome former coaching inn with character bar and two dining rooms, friendly licensees, local ales and inventive food; fine bedrooms

There's plenty of history and original features here (it was built as a guest house for the nearby Benedictine abbey) including heavy oak beams, mullioned windows and a pump and mounting block in the former coachyard. The bar has a solid oak counter, an attractive mix of old dining tables and chairs on slate or polished wooden floors, settles built into various nooks and crannies and a woodburner in the opened-up Yorkstone fireplace. Palmers Copper, Dorset Gold, IPA and 200 on handpump, ten wines by the glass, several malt whiskies and local cider. The dining room is furnished in a similar style; background music. There are seats on the terrace and picnic-sets beneath mature fruit trees or parasols in the back garden. Bedrooms are smart and well equipped and located in either the charming 16th-c main building or a converted stable block. You can walk from the chocolate-box pretty village to the prehistoric Cerne Abbas Giant chalk carving and then on to other villages.
