The Chetnole Inn sits surrounded by Dorset’s countryside, and this friendly pub and restaurant have a loyal following of fans. The menu includes everything from three course meals to light snacks and the snug bar is one of those that just makes you want to pick an armchair and curl up for a chat.
There’s plenty of seating outside in the garden, so if you’re stopping off before exploring some of the countryside you’ll be able to stay in the fresh air while you whet your whistle. With views across the nearby fields and the sight of little thatched cottages far in the distance the beer garden makes just the place to take some time to appreciate Dorset’s rural charm, and the menu reflects the pub’s location.
The restaurant serves meals every day of the week, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the owners make an effort to include local produce throughout the menu. Dogs are welcome in the beer garden and the snug bar, and if you visit on a winter’s day you can take full advantage of the log burner and pass the time with one of the many board games.
