One of Poundbury’s crown jewels

The Duchess of Cornwall Inn is a welcoming Dorset inn, designed on a grand scale. You’ll find our handsome three-storey pub and restaurant at the heart of Poundbury, inviting you to stop in for coffee, a Sunday roast, or a drink in one of its many cosy corners. Our 20 boutique hotel rooms are a perfect base for exploring Dorset’s country walks and historic attractions such as Cerne Abbas or Maiden Castle.

Introducing Summer Sippers

With vibrant combinations & exciting flavours our refreshing summer drinks collection will excite and delight your taste buds.

Our Menus

Here at The Duchess of Cornwall Inn we take our food seriously, whether it’s a generously-portioned classic Sunday roast, a tempting light lunch, or a memorable evening meal for a special occasion. Our chefs work with seasonal ingredients to reinvigorate traditional pub food, offering familiar favourites alongside imaginative fine dining dishes. That means hand-cut chips, sumptuous specials, and luscious puds you won’t want to share.

Super Sundays!

Visit us after 5pm on a Sunday for a £10 roast. It’s that simple! T&Cs apply.

Our Coffee Bar

You’re guaranteed a decent brew at The Duchess of Cornwall Inn, because we take making coffee just as seriously as we take pouring the perfect pint. Our ‘Rocket Espresso’ is an 100% Arabica blend from our friends at Extract Coffee Roasters, who work with a co-operative project benefiting families in Peru.

Our Beers

Drink in the taste of the Dorset countryside by sampling our Badger beers, which were first brewed by local farmer Charles Hall in 1777. Created from hops, malted barley, and pure spring water that’s naturally filtered through the chalk downs of Dorset, they’re a firm favourite. At The Duchess of Cornwall Inn, we offer a full, distinctive and delicious range, including our new Outland beers, which are imaginatively flavoured, and far from ordinary. 


Our charming, Georgian-inspired rooms are a perfect base for exploring both Poundbury and the Dorset countryside. No two are alike, combining lovingly-sourced antiques and vintage artwork with plenty of contemporary design touches to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
