Winyards Gap Inn: The perfect country pub in Beaminster Dorset
The Winyards Gap Inn near Beaminster, Dorset
This is the ultimate and quintessential British country pub. From the moment you walk in the Winyards Gap Inn, you feel like you are in a British postcard. Stone walls and open wood beam ceilings welcome you.
All the standard pub fare is available on the menu. What is not standard however, is the quality. The food is absolutely amazing. The burgers are delicious, and the chips will knock you off your bar stool. The Ploughman’s Platter is outstanding and quite substantial.
While the food is excellent for sure, British pubs are all about the drink. The Winyards Gap Inn features 2 full bars serving 2 dining rooms. The bars have a good selection of booze for most of your cocktail needs. A pretty good selection of beer, wine and cider is also available.
When Laura and I visited the Winyards Gap Inn, we were on a trip with my daughter who was visiting from the states. Being my daughter’s first time in England, we wanted to take in a lot of the amazing British sites like Bath, Stonehenge and the southern coast of Dorset and Devon.
The Winyards Gap Inn is located within easy driving distance from anywhere you want to see in southeast England. Just over an hour from Stonehenge, about an hour from Bath, we also stumbled upon the beach and cliff featured in one of our favorite British murder mystery shows, Broadchurch.
We got a couple of rooms and were blown away by the comfort and quality of the ensuite bedrooms. They were well furnished with super-king beds, TV, and in room coffee. The bedrooms aren’t even the best part though. More noteworthy, were the surprisingly spacious ensuite bathrooms. The walk in showers had excellent water pressure with a rainfall shower head and wand. If you have even spent the night in an old British pub, you know how rare these rooms are to find.
In conclusion, whether you are needing some great pub food or you need a quiet spot to catch some ZZZs in the British countryside, stop by the Winyards Gap Inn, you wont be disappointed.
