The Fox Inn, Ansty...
Is a traditional 250 year old pub nestled in the heart of the beautiful Dorset Downs in the rural village of Ansty. The inn has a warm, inviting bar and restaurant with a full menu of home cooked meals such as steaks, fish and chips and sausages and mash. We also specialise in locally sourced seasonal fresh Game and have a specialist Countryside Fayre Menu, which includes local Dorset produce.
Accommodation includes 11 characterful, well appointed en-suite letting bedrooms, including 4 superior rooms. We are dog friendly so your pooch will always be made welcome! We also have a fully equipped dog wet room for cleaning your dog after a muddy walk.
Our two Foxy Springers (George and Milly) love to meet and greet our 2 and 4 legged guests and there is always a free supply of dog biscuits on the bar. We pride ourselves on being one of Dorset’s friendliest pubs and our friendly team of staff are led by your hosts, Keith and Sharon, who are always happy to welcome you in to their home.
Free Wi-Fi is available in public areas but due to our remote location, mobile phone signal is limited.
The Fox is nestled away from the hustle and bustle in the heart of the peaceful West Dorset countryside so we can be quite hard to find, so please download a map from our contact page before you set off.
