Earlier in 2014 the pub, which dates back to 1851, was bought from Punch Taverns by a local family who set about a refurbishment and rebuilding schedule. The pub has 6 letting bedrooms and a spacious dining area where tasty home cooked pub grub meals are served using the finest ingredients from local suppliers in Dorset; yet still retaining the charm of a village inn
Set in a 19th-century pub just a 10-minute drive from Dorchester town centre, The Black Dog Inn has an outdoor children’s playground. Real ales are served in the traditional bar, and food is served 7 days a week. Each soundproofed room has a flat-screen TV with Freesat. Free private parking is provided and the seaside town of Weymouth is a 20-minute car journey from The Black Dog. During the summer months, guests can relax with a drink in the large garden seating area. Full English breakfasts and an evening menu are available in the restaurant. The bright and airy bedrooms also have an en suite bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities.
