Hello, and thanks for visiting our website.
Situated in the peaceful Dorset village of West Knighton near Dorchester, our English Heritage listed public house offers everyone a warm welcome. Why not pop in for a refreshing ale, a cup of coffee and a sandwich, or even a delicious pub lunch whilst enjoying a scenic country walk in the surrounding area? Alternatively, we serve full evening meals in our modern dining area, and our carvery is famous with the locals – we’d love to see you one Sunday.
We use the best ingredients from local suppliers to produce both seasonal fine-dining menus as well as offering good old-fashioned pub grub. And, having just undertaken an extensive refurbishment to create a bright and beautiful bar and restaurant, we’ve still retained the charm of a village inn – honouring our roots, which date back to 1851.
Please see below for details of our Bed and Breakfast accommodation, ready and waiting for those wishing to explore Dorset.
We offer 9 stylish en-suite shower rooms and can cater for most accommodation requests from single occupancy to family rooms. Please contact us for current availability along with Bed & Breakfast room rates.
We can also offer accommodation at our sister pub in the next village (approx 2 miles), The Black Dog in Broadmayne or if you are looking for somewhere to stay in more central Dorset, try our George Albert Hotel on the A37 between Dorchester and Yeovil. Not only do we offer Bed and Breakfast rooms, we also offer accommodation in our beautiful holiday lets situated in West Knighton and Whitcombe.
We love using local home-grown produce to support our community and to also source the finest ingredients, rotating the menu according to the seasons. Our team of experienced chefs are passionate about, and committed to, delivering high standard food both within the a la carte menu as well as with our traditional pub meals. We offer an excellent Sunday carvery with a selection of meats and a wide range of vegetables that keeps people coming back for more.
