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
