The Fox Inn At Ansty

Prop up the bar chatting to a local with a Dorset ale, relax in one of our sunny beer gardens, choose from our fresh & locally sourced focused menu and stay a while in our contemporary bedrooms.

The Fox in a quintessential English Inn in the heart of Dorset with the charms of a country pub with a modern twist. The pub is owned and run by a farming family just across the road at Brewery Farm and as much produce as possible comes directly from there or as locally as possible.

Why Not Stay A While

Upstairs you’ll find 11 stylish en-suite bedrooms with King or Super King beds, Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, quality tea and coffee making facilities and toiletries. We also welcome dogs in a number of our bedrooms.

Each stay comes with a choice of delicious cooked breakfast options, tea coffee & juices.
