A quiet country pub and B and B in the heart of Dorset. A pleasant village and the property is run by a couple who have only been there a few weeks but are very friendly and the food and service are excellent. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and this is well worth a visit. Well done with the... More

The previous owners were good but .the new couple have hit the ground running with an excellent menu all suited to regular local visitors as well as those from further afield. Ample portions, quality food and reasonable prices will all ensure the new team are made welcome and become popular in the wider community of Dorset.

We picked the Chetnole Inn based on previous reviews and its location midpoint between Wimbourne Minster and Bath where we're also staying. It was a delightful find in the middle of very pretty countryside. Our room, Tess, was large and comfortable with a king size bed, small sofa and nice bathroom all with windows overlooking the churchyard which was very... More

We found this inn thanks to Red Letter Day. It is in a tiny village a few miles south of Sherborne in Dorset (well worth a visit). The Chetnole Inn only has 3 or 4 rooms, but ours was very attractive with a nice view over the churchyard. The best thing was the food, all freshly cooked and very reasonably... More

The Chetnole Inn is now happily under the new ownership of Simon and Maria, and I'm delighted to say it is still a 5* place to dine and stay. Simon and Maria warmly welcome you to their traditional country inn. The bedrooms deserve their previous high ratings, beautifully appointed and so clean and fresh with good quality tea/coffee and bathroom... More
