Nestled in a 17th-century thatched cottage in the heart of Dorset, The Museum Inn is a 2 AA Rosette-awarded gastro pub, and a member of The Good Pub Guide's Pub Group of the Year 2016. Regularly named in national newspapers’ pub guide listings, The Museum was named No 6 in the UK by The Independent.

Working with fine regional suppliers and championing the best of British cooking, The Museum Inn menu offers a hearty yet refined selection. Enjoy pub classics of fish pie or handmade burger, alongside dishes like honey-glazed duck breast with seared duck liver and roasted Jersey royals, and golden fried gnocchi with broad beans, pea puree, asparagus and rocket.

A range of creative, hand-crafted desserts are the epitome of indulgence, with offerings like chocolate marquise with mango sorbet and caramel sauce, or pink pistachio meringue with tangy marinated raspberries. Rich coffees and fine rare teas are sourced from Teapigs tea merchants, and an excellent wine list compiles a mix of 70 classic and New World bottles.

Open wood burning fires and flagstone floors create a rustic countryside ambience at The Museum Inn Blandford. The Museum Inn is also home to 'The Shed' a quirky private dining space.
