If you are looking for a country pub in Dorset to stay in, look no further than The Fox Inn at Ansty. Nestling in the peaceful heart of Dorset’s stunning countryside, this traditional Inn has been part of the landscape for over 240 years.
With its superior accommodation in cosy bedrooms, The revamped Fox Inn welcomes you to this perfectly peaceful location, providing a handy base for your Dorset holiday. Why not visit us for a short Spring or Summer break?
If you are a lover of fine food, you won’t be disappointed, as we have a new, tasty menu to sample. We, of course, are renowned in Dorset for our Sunday Carvery, which happens every Sunday all year round. And in addition, our luscious Cream Teas and fulsome English breakfasts will keep the wolf from the door. All our food is locally-sourced.
Our location in the heart of Dorset means all of Dorset’s charms - the magical Jurassic Coast; The rural countryside of Thomas Hardy fame; historical Dorchester; Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills; charming Lyme Regis and Broadchurch’s West Bay - are all within easy reach by car.
On your return, relax in the Snug Bar with a pint of real Badger Beer, ready for some walking in the beautiful surrounding countryside the next day!
