Traditional village pub in Dorset

Traditional village pub in Dorset

Pubs in Dorset

There’s a rich tradition of eating and drinking well in Dorset and the delightful Dorset countryside is bursting with traditional inns and family friendly pubs where you can sample Dorset’s famous local produce.

Imagine lunch in the sunshine and supper in the fading glow of a sunset, freshly caught crab baguettes washed down with specialist scrumpy and rural gastropubs with breathtaking views where you can laugh with friends whilst cooking your own locally reared steak just how you like it..

A delicious destination all year round

In the summer months, pubs in Dorset come alive with the buzzing sound of families dining al fresco on warm, hazy summer’s evenings.

On a beautiful day, experience the joy of journeying through the winding lanes to a country pub where you can enjoy a heavenly Ploughman’s lunch served with crumbly Blue Vinney Cheese.

In the winter, the pubs in Dorset are even more atmospheric! Cosy up by a roaring log fire, join in the local banter and enjoy the rich flavours of the season.

Dine by candlelight on rustic oak tables as you treat your tastebuds to the likes of West Country farmed beef and homemade Dorset apple pie. Scrumptious!

Award-winning Dorset pubs

For discerning drinkers and diners, Dorset is a county full of temptation. Serviced by a host of microbreweries, artisan cider producers, organic farms and first class foragers, Dorset pubs offer a unique food & drink experience.

Dorset is justifiably famous for the quality of its produce and the county’s pubs and inns boast awards ranging from Taste of the West, the Good Pub Guide, Michelin Guide and TripAdvisor.

So whether you want to relax with a glass of fine vintage wine at one of Dorset’s contemporary harbour-side establishments or savour the ambience in a trendy gastro-pub, the choice is yours. We welcome you to come and experience a taste of Dorset.

From sensational food to outstanding accommodation
