More Information

The Coach & Horses, as it's name suggests, is a former coaching inn dating back to the early 1800's. In rolling countryside, it is perfect for exploring Dorset's beautiful Jurassic coastline.The pub is located within the heart of the village of Winterbourne Abbas, just four miles from Dorchester on the A35, making it an ideal base for a Dorset short break or as an overnight stopover on the way to the West Country.A fine selection of beers and winesThe pub is a Free House run by Andy and Liz Venning, friendly and hospitable hosts who took over in 2002.They have established a reputation for serving excellent food and well-maintained ales, and for the quality of the bed and breakfast accommodation in Dorset..Andy and Liz have some 25 years experience in the pub trade and between them have interests in food, gardening, fishing, rugby and classic cars, when they get a break from their main 'hobby' of steadily improving the inn's amenities and decor."We aim to provide good quality service in a relaxed atmosphere".Andy is in charge of the kitchen which serves food throughout the day and is based around an excellent Carvery along with an extensive menu that includes bar snacks, daily specials and vegetarian options.We stock a wide selection of brand name drinks, local beers, wines by the bottle and the glass, and plenty of soft drinks for those on the move, so there really is something for everyone.
