Clean, modern lines within belie the Georgian exterior of this progressive village inn. It sits on the edge of Blackmore Vale in Thomas Hardy’s rolling Dorset countryside, classic walking country enjoyed by many of the inn’s patrons. Hand-pulled pints from Plain Ales brewery in Salilsbury and regional guests are complemented by a comprehensive range of world bottled beers. The pub’s stylish and unstuffy attitude creates a welcoming and relaxing ambience in which to enjoy these drinks. For more of Dorset’s larder, look no further than the menu, overflowing with fresh and local produce, ethically raised and delivered with minimum food miles. Light bites, sandwiches and classic dishes appear on the lunch menu.
