The Saxon Inn

Eating OutAccommodation

The Saxon Inn is a lovely Freehouse tucked away in the picturesque village of Child Okeford, set amongst the captivating landscape of the Dorset Countryside. Our reputation for good food and customer care is what drives us to maintain the high standard we set. Cosy log fires, a warm rustic atmosphere and traditional values greet our guests every time they visit. Come and experience a proper Dorset pub that takes time to cater for all the little things that make that special difference. Upstairs you will find four En-suite Bed and Breakfast rooms which have been affectionately brought to life. Outside you can take in the air with our ‘Alfresco’ seating and dining area, following on to a large, secluded beer garden.
