Welcome to the Winyard's Gap Inn

We are a traditional family owned English pub set in stunning Dorset countryside with views that go on for miles. We are based on the edge of Chedington Village close to Crewkerne and Beaminster.

We have two traditional bars you can enjoy real ales, guest ciders, fine wines and a large range of spirits. Also a great restaurant where we use local and seasonal produce where possible, much of which comes from within a five mile radius of our front door. You can enjoy a selection as varied as our legendary organic burger right through to locally caught fresh fish and game.

What's more we have our famous beer garden with its beautiful views – a perfect place to spend a summer evening.
