The Duchess of Cornwall Inn
The Duchess of Cornwall Inn is situated in Poundbury, an urban extension just outside Dorchester, offering a Bar, Restaurant & Bedrooms.
For over 235 years the Woodhouse family have brewed award-winning Badger ales in the heart of Dorset and offered hospitality and a warm welcome in public houses across the South of England. The Duchess of Cornwall Inn reflects the locations, characters and enthusiasms that have shaped this very English family. It conveys their dedication to the craft of brewing, the kindness of genuine hospitality and an ambition to push the boundaries of both with just a pinch of British eccentricity.
Within The Duchess of Cornwall Inn you will find different areas which evoke a country house. The ground floor hosts our Pantry and Bar evoking a casual, drop-in, pot luck ethos, the Dining Room on the second floor focuses on classically simple British food, reliable standard dishes that everyone wants to eat, not an elaborate restaurant. To top it all there are 3 floors of stunning bedrooms representing two themes of Georgian England; Gentility (Jane Austen) and Mercantilism (Charles Hall, our founder).
Parking in Queen Mother's Square is free.
