Hello, and thanks for visiting our website.
You can always expect a warm and friendly welcome, as well as delicious food, at The Black Dog Inn. We pride ourselves on giving our customers a great experience, and – for those who choose to book our on-site accommodation – a lovely stay that will guarantee you’ll want to return to sample the delights of Dorset.
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 dates back to 1851.
The village we’re based in is surrounded by open countryside, offering spectacular views and a choice of both easy or challenging rambles that you can fit around a refreshing drink at the bar or a meal in the restaurant.
Please see below for details of our accommodation, ready and waiting for those wishing to explore Dorset.
We offer 8 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 New Inn West Knighton 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.
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 and our traditional pub meals. We offer an excellent Sunday roast dinner with a selection of meats and a wide range of vegetables that keeps people coming back for more.
