About this property

Super dog-friendly hotel, The Fontmell in Dorset is a wonderful pub with rooms in the pretty village of Fontmell Magna. Perfect for a relaxing weekend away with your best furry friend, The Fontmell extends over Collier’s Brook providing a lovely backdrop of rippling water whilst you dine with your four-legged family members in the cosy bar. Set on the edge of Cranborne Chase, your furry friend will be spoilt for choice with gorgeous countryside to explore and sniff. Only 10 minutes from the town of Shaftesbury, you and your canine companion can enjoy trekking up the town’s famous Gold Hill which offers stunning views of the Blackmore Vale. The Fontmell is passionate about their homegrown philosophy, sourcing (and rearing) local ingredients wherever possible. If you’re looking for a refreshing pet-away in North Dorset, The Fontmell makes a fabulous home from home that will make you want to return again and again. 


Dine with Your Dog

A pub with a fine-dining ethos, Head Chef Tom Shaw and his team use seasonal and local produce to create a delicious menu that changes daily. Some of our favourite dishes include Homemade pork, leek, and red onion marmalade sausage roll, Fontmell Chutney, Fontmell Fish Pie, Rare breed, Porchetta (herb roasted pork belly), dauphinoise potato, cauliflower puree, rainbow chard, jus, and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Guests can dine in the bar with their furry friend. If you’re planning on going for a lengthy hike with your pooch, you can ask the hotel to fix you up a delicious packed lunch!
