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.
