What to do with a tired coaching inn on the main A35?

With 15 pubs closing every week, and a double dip recession, some would say it is not the best time to take on a village pub of over 3,000sq m, with 5 letting rooms.

Not that Sandy Duncan the new owner of the Coach & Horses would let this effect her vision of what was required of a pub in 2012.

A coffee lounge with real coffee and tea served the traditional way in China cups from a china teapot. Homemade cakes a Victoria sponge, coffee and walnut cake, scones, and the option of afternoon tea or cream tea served on a tiered cake stand. The vision was to decorate the coffee lounge with real style and eloquence. Reclaimed wood floors, open fires easy chairs and low tables all lit by chandeliers. Creating an atmosphere of calm and tranquillity with daily newspapers to enjoy or free wifi.

Then a bar area with high leather stools and poser tables, a choice of four real ales, accompanied by lagers and a range of new ciders to suit all ages. Fresh juices and smoothies to entice the young and old alike.

The 100 seater restaurant with a theatre kitchen home to a traditional clay pizza oven and chargrill, watch the chef create your meal. The wood floors and chandeliers all adding to the ambience while in the winter months open fires will create an even cosier feel. our team of chefs have created a menu full of local produce, from Portland Crab to Ashley Chase Cheese, West Bay Lobster to lemon sole. The Chargrill is bursting with daily special of fish and steak, or fancy a pizza. Thin crust, just like the Italians make them we can offer thicker crusts, stuffed crust or calzone, make your own, choose your own toppings or have a coach special, homemade chorizo, Buffalo Mozzarella and Rocket.
The main menu has fish and chips with our own beer batter, or Mediterranean lamb burger or a sharing platter.
Lunchtime, try a sandwich which includes our homemade fish fingers. latest check in 8pm
