We visit The Springhead regularly and went last Friday for Steak night and we can honestly say it was the best fillet steak we have had. Served with lovely crispy chips, peas and peppercorn sauce. Always a great warm atmosphere. Our favourite pub ever😁

Thank you for the lovely review 😄 Our Chefs are so talented and make such an effort to ensure the carvery is ‘just like you’d make at home’. The cauliflower cheese is also my favourite. I’ll mention the peppery stuffing to the chef, thanks again

Description
The Springhead Pub and Restaurant is located at the heart of the small Dorset village of Sutton Poyntz. Quietly tucked away beneath the chalk downs, the village has a unique beauty which awaits discovery, a mile from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and only 3 miles north-west of Weymouth town centre.
