Handy for Dorchester and Bridport, this old beamed country inn offers magnificent views of the glorious Dorset countryside. Close to West Bay, who's memorable cliffs have been made even more memorable by two series of Broadchurch, the pub boasts a landscaped beer garden with a pond, stream and children’s play area. It all makes for a lovely setting to enjoy a glass of Otter Ale and sample locally sourced, home-made fare like slow-roast belly pork with cider sauce; pan-fried fillets of sea bass with Savoy cabbage and bacon; or steak and ale pie. Accommodation is also available.
