"Definitely the best dog friendly hotel around but still impeccable surroundings and bedrooms."
The welcome was great, the room was much bigger than I expected and it didn't look or smell as if dogs had been in the room. It was very clean and tidy. An exceptionally and friendly pub,obviously well valued by the community and popular as Sunday lunch and evening was heaving. Excellent location for travelling to Weymouth and the coast in general. Food was excellent and the doggie wet room was fabulous. Read less
Likes:
The fact that it was a genuinely dog friendly hotel and positive encouraged them. Some pubs purport to be dog friendly but they aren't and are expected to sit outside. This pub was totally different.
Dislikes:
The rain! Other than that - perfect and would come back again.

Dislikes:
Evening meal menu was same both nights - even the "Specials". If we were there for a third night we would have gone to another pub/restaurant.
No heated towel rail so towels did not dry very much.

The only part of my stay i didnt enjoy was the somewhat uncomfortable bed and the sound between my room and next. Walls appear very thin so most low level noise what very audible from my room

The Fox Inn was built over 250 years ago as the home of Charles Hall, then known as Broadclose. In the last 90 years the pub has become one of Dorset's most famous hostelries. Now under the control of Keith and Sharon, with Sharon's daughter Clare as manager, Clare's partner Darren as Head Chef. The Fox Inn is a true family enterprise.
Warm, welcoming and always a reflection of the rich, rural life found in the heart of Dorset, The Fox is popular with residents, visitors and locals alike.
The main restaruant provides a traditional and relaxing atmosphere in which to dine. Head Chef Darren and his team offer interesting and varied menus using the finest of fresh local produce. For a more informal experience try the light, airey garden restaurant ~ ideal for lunch. in the summer there is a large patio area which is a real sun trap.

There are 11 ensuite letting rooms, including 4 superior rooms designed to be both stylish and comfortable.
(Due to the fact the rooms are on upper floors with no lift, these rooms are not suitable for people with very limited mobility.) Please be aware our standard double rooms have dormer windows and therefore, sloping ceilings.
In addition to the wealth of nearby attractions: Monkey World, Abbottsbury Swannery, Athelhampton Gardens, Sherbourne Castle, The Tutankhamun Exhibition to name but a few, we are ideally situated to take in some of the most breath taking walks. We recommend the spectacular views from the Wessex Ridgeway, returning through the famous Dorset Gap.
Day trips to Jersey and Guernsey are also available from nearby Weymouth.

We are a very dog friendly establishment, To enhance the stay of all our guests who bring their dogs, we now have a dedicated 'dog wetroom', with dog shower, shampoos, towels, grooming table, dog drier, dirty welly / wet clothing area for muddy owners too.

**Please note - there is little or, for some, no mobile phone signal.
