Book a Room


One of the delights of the perfect English Country pub is that it is at the heart of its community a place where people can come together. That’s why we believe it’s so important for us to give something back to our local community. Below are just a couple of things we do to help out in some small way.

Air Ambulance

We are proud to be supporting our local Air Ambulance.  Operating 365 days of the year, Air Ambulances play a crucial part in delivering pre-hospital critical care to patients in need.  We are fundraising to help our local Air Ambulance continue saving lives in the local area.

Dorset Arts Week

Dorset Arts Weeks is one of the largest Open Studio Events in the country. It brings artists and visitors together in ways that are often remarkable and profoundly different from entering a public gallery.

Dorset Food & Arts Festival

Dorset Food and Arts Festival happens in Queen Mother’s Square, right outside our doors and champions the best of Dorset and showcases a bumper crop of produce and culinary talent. With 50 local food and drink stalls, including the regular Poundbury Dorset Farmers’ Market stallholders, music by local singers and groups all day and demonstrations by food experts and chefs it is a great day out.

Local Companies

We also use some of our bookcases to showcase a few local companies we love, including: Sea Stone Jewellery, Emmy and the Fox, Wild Bird, Poundbury Door2Door, For the Love of Stampin, Berts Bows, Fatnex and Made by Miriam.
