About the hotel

Here at the White Lion Inn we know what a pub should be like. After many years working hard eating and drinking in other pubs, purely for research purposes of course, we have used our extensive experience to offer you the very best traditional Dorset pub experience in the county, if not the world…probably. The White Lion is a beautiful old building dating from 1723 and we offer a warm welcome in a comfortable and relaxing environment, excellent beers and ciders, superb food with fine wines, a cosy bar with open fire, an elegant restaurant and a large beer garden, but so do other pubs, so what makes us special? The atmosphere – our locals and friends who make it feel like pubs used to feel, like home just with more beer and no washing up.

So come along and meet us all! As if being probably the best pub in the world was not enough we are also located at the heart of one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of the West Country. As we are the most northerly Inn in Dorset we’re also very close to the borders of Wiltshire and Somerset, comfortably positioned close enough to the A303 to be a very welcome diversion from a drive between London and the West Country, while being far enough from the traffic to be a peaceful haven. Nearby is the wonderful National Trust property of Stourhead with its world famous English landscape garden complete with decadent follies. Just down the road Alfred’s Tower marks the spot where King Alfred raised his standard before marching to defeat the Danes. It’s well worth the climb for the spectacular views from the top. Stonehenge is just a short drive away and the old Anglo-Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury is nearby and worth a visit, while the sublime architecture of Bath is also within easy reach.

The White Lion Inn

Located in a small, out-of- the- way village, close to the A303, the White Lion Inn is a beautiful country hotel with a large beer garden, ale on tap, top class food (very popular with locals on the weekend) and well appointed rooms.

The only drawback would be for tall persons accessing the accommodation as the ceilings are low in places. I had a great stay and would highly recommend this Inn.
