Village Pub

Drink in the atmosphere of rural Dorset

Since the 17th century, The White Hart pub has provided a focus for the community of Bishops Caundle – a small thriving village in West Dorset, close to the historic market towns of Sherborne and Sturminster Newton.
Our award-winning, family-friendly, traditional village pub offers a warm welcome to locals and visitors to the region.

Freshly-prepared pub food

Real Ales, West Country cider, specially-selected wines – and more!

We’re a traditional pub, not a gastro-pub – pop by for your favourite tipple.
And we have a pool table too!
