“Out have gone inglenooks, false beams, jaded staff and horse brasses. In have come young, friendly managers, toys for children, first-class food leaning heavily on local produce of the highest quality, and taste in design and decoration. It has interesting draught beers and 30 bottled ones. Cider and wines taken equally seriously. The rooms are quite large, neat and comfortable (White Company towels and robes, mineral water, fresh irises, free DVDs). Breakfast even better than dinner. Exemplary.”

“The Stapleton Arms is a stylish but unstuffy country pub with rooms, tucked away in the pretty North Dorset village of Buckhorn Weston.
The pub has a spacious bar, elegant dining room and a secluded garden in which to enjoy the great range of draught and bottled beers, quality wines and real food on offer. And upstairs there are four stunning, individually designed bedrooms with beautiful furnishings and state of the art bathrooms.
Stop for a pint or stay the night, The Stapleton Arms is a great place to take time out and enjoy our friendly and relaxed style of hospitality.”
"If the good smells coming from here are all too much and you can't wait for lunch, home-made pork pies can be eaten at the bar off chunky wooden boards. "
