Roly and Helen Harries took over this traditional village pub in Puddletown, near Dorchester in May 2013. Keeping the very best of the old, they set about combining its warm, friendly country ambience with a cool, airy modern interior – part of a style that is reflected in their approach to the food and hospitality. The food is home cooked, and where possible the ingredients are seasonal and sourced locally from friends or trusted specialist suppliers. The wines have been chosen to complement the menu, and there is always a range of excellent guest ales on tap. Our new head chef has joined us from the Coventry Arms, Wimborne. Gary Pavitt has lived in Dorset since 2002 having trained in London.
This family-run bed and breakfast is very welcoming to all. Ideally located nearby the historic town of Dorchester, in one of the most picturesque parts of Dorset, you can expect a high quality of service and spotlessly clean facilities. *
