The Countryman Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Walkers and visitors to the Jurassic Coast take heed, there is an inn just waiting to spoil you on your visit, with luxurious rooms and tasty home-prepared food to sate your appetite after a long ramble in the surrounding countryside. The Countryman Inn is just minutes by car from the coast and only two miles from the train station, making it the perfect base from which to explore all that the area has to offer, whether you are looking to roam the coastal paths and country walkways or wander the historic villages around Dorchester.
When it comes to the food, everything is inspired by the seasons and made using the best produce available, so the menus change frequently. Diners will find something for all appetites, from freshly made sandwiches with fillings along the lines of Dorset sausage with homemade red onion chutney and posh fish fingers, to hearty mains such as chicken breast topped with bacon and served with tangy barbecue sauce, moules marinières and steak sizzling from the grill. A carvery is served every week and the drinks offering is just as impressive and extensive as the food. As well as fine ale and cider, there is plenty of white and red wine to suit every palate and pocket. Welcoming everyone young and old, The Countryman Inn is a fine choice for a weekend break or a simple meal out.
