Accommodation Description:

Visit this Dorset gem and you will not be disappointed. Nestling beneath Hambledon Hill, the Saxon Inn is one of the most delightful and picturesque country inns you could ever encounter. Dating back some 300 years, the inn started life as a pub in the 1950s.

Now in 2007 the inn has been sympathetically extended and has four sumptuous en-suite letting rooms, the bar and dining areas have lovely old beams, log fires and a warm, inviting ambience created by hosts Peter and Helen Turner. Who have put their experience to excellent use in making the Saxon Inn one of the most appealing pubs for many miles around. Ringwood best and Butcombe Bitter are the regular real ales, joined by changing guests and all kept in tip-top condition - CAMRA Good Beer Guide approved of course.The food is another good reason for a visit here.

There is a wide choice of traditional pub dishes featured in the A la Carte menu, supported by a daily specials board reflecting the seasonal choices and availability of fresh fish. The food is locally sourced and predominately home cooked by Helen and her excellent kitchen team. For the lighter appetite and for those in need of a quicker alternative there is a selection of Jacket potatoes and sandwiches.

Food is served lunchtime seven days a week and every evening except Sunday. Theres a separate dining area with a wood-burning stove in an impressive brick hearth.
