Warm, welcoming and always a reflection of the rich, rural life found in the middle of Dorset, the Fox Snug Bar is popular with residents, visitors and locals.
Whether you are looking for a refreshing pint of Dorset's most famous Tanglefoot Ale, enjoy a glass of wine, or a warming Scottish malt whisky, the quality and service, combined with welly boots and an air of informality, will always be a feature of the Fox Bar.
We have never forgotten that no matter how our menu is, or how comfortable the bedrooms, the Fox is still first and foremost a traditional country inn, and we take pride in the quality of the ales, wines and spirits we serve.
The lounge bar houses an interesting collection of Woodhouse Family History and the bar area meanders through the pub ending in the Garden Restaurant where the impressive picture windows allow unhindered views of the attractive landscaped garden. Needless to say, when the weather allows, drinking al fresco is an experience of true pleasure close to the wildlife of the surrounding countryside on the outside dining area.
"The food was good and the choice of real ale very good indeed"
