Beautifully positioned in the little village of Piddletrenthide near Dorchester, The Poachers Inn has something for everyone. From the minute you walk through the door you can experience the traditional yet modern bar and restaurant which serves wonderful food, ales and wine. You can also stay in one of our 21 rooms with bed and breakfast. In the summer, why not join us to enjoy our beautiful riverside garden and pool. Situated in the heart of West Dorset, The Poachers Inn is the perfect place to explore some of the local area. Close to the spectacular World Heritage Jurassic Coast, miles of unspolit beautiful countryside, lots of attractions and the towns of Dorchester, Weymouth, Salisbury and Poole are all an easy drive away. Owners Nigel Tancock and Sarah Harris are hands-on in every way, sharing their passion and energy with the committed staff.
