A warm welcome...
...awaits you at The Brewer's Arms, a traditional country pub in the picturesque village of Martinstown, just outside Dorchester in Dorset. Owned by Ben and Leanne Carter and run by their family and a fantastically friendly team – they pride themselves on their locally-sourced, homemade food, cask ales and friendly atmosphere.
With a large car park, sunny courtyard garden and great location close to the Jurassic Coast, South Dorset Ridgeway and Maiden Castle, the pub is a popular ‘stop-off’ for walkers, cyclists and visitors to the West Country.
The pub was originally built as a girl’s school in 1848 and converted into the village inn in 1865 when the beer came from the Brewery House opposite. In the early years, the pub was particularly popular with farmers washing their sheep in the washing pool just up the lane in front of the pub. The washing pool is still there and now acts as the starting point for the annual Duck Race which sees hundreds of plastic ducks “racing” each other down the stream.
There are two beautiful en-suite Bed & Breakfast rooms with their own private entrances. Dogs are welcome in the pub and as overnight guests with their owners in the spacious guest rooms.
The Brewers Arms is open:
Tuesday to Saturday – 12 to 3pm and 6 to 11pm (5 to 11pm on Fridays)
Sunday – 12 to 3pm only
The pub is closed Sunday evening and all day Monday
