This beautiful 16th century former coaching inn is an iconic building located in the heart of Cerne Abbas, one of the prettiest villages in England. Recognition in the major guide books has come and The Good Pub Guide awarded us County Dining Pub of the Year. The village is within easy reach of Weymouth, Bridport and Shaftsbury. It is also the perfect stop-off point for those coming to or from Devon and Cornwall. Journey-time by car from London is approximately 2½ hours and there is a good train service to both the aforementioned county towns where taxi transfers can be arranged.

Stayed here for a few days, there are positives and negatives.
The positives were the managers and the staff in general who were all very good. The beer from Palmers (not my favourite brewery) was very well kept. The room was good with plenty of...More
This is another of those (many!) occasions when, if it were available, I would give a rating of "Good", but not go as far as Very Good.
The courtyard is certainly a pleasant setting for lunch on a summer's day and the waitress who served...More

Julian and Annette couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Great food, great atmosphere, doggy friendly (well behaved) and good disabled access and facilities.
Fine dining at mid range prices.
Stopped off for lunch after a good stroll round the beautiful Cerne Abbas village. Plenty of options including a BBQ selection in the garden.
Excellent quality of food and good local beer. Owners were a really nice couple too.
Give it a visit
