Carol and Phil Bennett welcome you to our 16th-century thatched inn located in the heart of Hardy's Dorset. We have converted the old skittle alley and function room into four comfortable and stylish bedrooms. After a good night's sleep, you will be set up for the day with a cooked breakfast to your liking. Local ales tapped from the cask, wines by the glass and delicious food.

I would think they would be able to cater for your wedding. Obviously the venue is terrific. They can seat 30 easily and the accommodation may not be take 30 but the garden is large and the car park is large. However you need to book it soon.
