This location is lovely! Set next to a shallow stream, with steeping stones you can walk over. Ducks to feed, with the correct food of course, and georgous weeping willow trees line the lane up to the pub. Fantastic Sunday lunch with massive Yorkshire puddings...More

The Springhead Pub and Restaurant is located at the heart of the small Dorset village of Sutton Poyntz. Quietly tucked away beneath the chalk downs, the village has a unique beauty which awaits discovery, a mile from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and only 3 miles north-west of Weymouth town centre.
