Hotel Review

Stride across rolling fields, feast on Corton Denham lamb, retire to one of the 8 perfect room. Buried down several Dorset/Somerset borders lanes, Gordon and Jeanette Reid's 18th-century stone pub has an elegant exterior – more Country Gentleman's House than pub. The bar, with its rug-strewn flagstones and bare boards, pew benches, deep sofas and crackling fire, is most charming. In the light, bright dining rooms that doubles up as a cinema on week nights, and on the terrace in summer, robust modern British dishes are distinguished by fresh ingredients from local suppliers. Try pheasant, pigeon and black pudding fritters, follow with monkfish with chive velouté, make room for a comforting crumble. Expect their own Moor Queen's Revival on tap, homemade pork pies on the bar, Black Spot bacon, from the Queens Arms very own Farm, at breakfast (from 8am daily), and stunning walks from the door. Dogs are welcome in the bar and there is also a bedroom for you favourite pooch to have a sleep over.
