The Horton Inn, Wimborne

Based in the middle of pretty Dorset countryside, this is your perfect classic pub: great chips, great beer, and great atmosphere.

Weekend Escapes

The Horton Inn is the pub that everyone wants in their village: cosy, buzzy, serving cracking, classic food and boasting a large, sun-trap garden and sheltered courtyard. As it happens, it’s situated smack in the middle of the gorgeous countryside, just on the outskirts of the New Forest and a few miles’ drive from the Jurassic Coast.

It’s a firm favourite among regulars and a sought-out destination for travellers, thanks to boutique bed and breakfast rooms. The dining area is cosy with roaring fire, and decidedly family and dog friendly — which contributes to the buzzy, friendly feel of the place. That, and the great range of draught beers/ ciders, real ales, and detailed wine list, helping the distinctly merry atmosphere.

Food here is hearty, familiar fare done well. You know the sort: great chunky chips, a killer Sunday roast — the sort of good, all-pleasing stuff you just can’t say no to, all cooked fresh.

Keep an eye out for the events that take place throughout the year: The Horton Inn puts on a great party with live music, BBQs, sports, and more.
