Museum Inn

FARNHAM, Blandford, DT11 8DE

2 rosettes

In a chocolate-box village, this part-thatched brick inn has all the trappings of a 17th-century building: flagstone floors, open fires, and low ceilings. Traditional it may look, and real ales are served at the bar, but this is a full-on gastro-pub with a modern menu of well-thought-out appealing dishes. Crispy hen's egg with duxelle, Roquefort and truffle soldiers - a luxuriant combination if ever there was one - gets things off to a flying start, and there might be lentil and smoked bacon soup in winter. Main courses are as well considered and effective: pan-fried fillet of sea bream with a casserole of butter beans, mussels, clams and chorizo, slow-cooked pork belly with braised red cabbage, mustard mash and apple sauce, and lamb three ways (roast saddle, sweetbreads and shepherd's pie) with haggis, neeps and tatties. Finish with a plate of chocolate: oozy fondant, mousse, orange fondue and ice cream.
