Accommodation Description:

Recently refitted to a very high standard the Countryman Inn has all the character of a country pub with a warm welcome. Top quality home-cooked food is available including fresh daily specials fine wines & real ales. The comfortable accommodation is keenly sought as a venue for holiday breaks as well as special functions.

We are situated in the heart of Dorset's Thomas Hardy country in East Knighton just off the A352 road between Dorchester and Wareham. Not far from Weymouth Lulworth Cove and many many other famous tourist spots we are close enough for you to enjoy what they have to offer without being stuck in the middle of it all. There aren't many quieter more peaceful locations than the middle of the Dorset countryside.

The Guest accommodation is well maintained & has a rustic feel. Flat screen TV's have been installed in all rooms and guests are more than welcome to utilise the facilities at the Inn which has also been newly refitted. We offer an extensive lunchtime and evening menu fine wines and real ales with a large selection of vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Our carvery has been established for many years and has gained something of a reputation! If you have been here before we took over the management of the property you will be amazed at the changes it's like a whole new pub! The character and friendly atmosphere has been restored and the refit has transformed the appearance.
